Rodent infestations can cause extensive damage to both the inside of your home as well as the surrounding areas. Various species are known for different nesting behaviors such as squirrels who bring outside elements like sticks and moss inside. Feeding habits by rodents destroy gardens and yards as well as the home and its contents like attic insulation and wires.
Trying to Trap Rodents on Your Own
You can try luring rodents such as rats and mice into traps, but rats have learned which items are safe to eat in the environment, and which items are poisonous. Rats are neophobic, avoiding new foods. By smelling foods on the fur, whiskers, and breath of other rats, they prefer to eat the same foods those rats have previously eaten. This makes trapping them much more difficult as they become suspicious of foods they do not recognize.
