Baits or Traps: How to Choose
Once you know mice have invaded your house, you want them gone ASAP – actually, make that yesterday. But shopping for the right product can be a bit overwhelming with all the options out there: sticky traps, bait blocks, and a slew of different features.
Let d-Con break it down for you, so you can decide whether to buy bait stations or traps. Here’s your cheat sheet:
Who will love them: Perfect for the “set it and forget it” person, as well as those who have zero tolerance for seeing a dead rodent.
Bait stations’ superpowers: These mouse-bait stations serve up “food” that contains Vitamin D3 (or cholecalciferol, which is used as a nutritional supplement by humans). The mice eat it and then go back to their nest and die. You don’t see them or have to handle their remains like traps…hurrah! Plus these stations are resistant to tampering by children and dogs.
Suit yourself: There are disposable options (perfect if you need to get rid of just a mouse or two) and refillable ones if you have a bigger, umm, “situation” unfolding.
Bonus: These bait stations are designed to squeeze into the tight spaces inside your home where mice typically spend time.
Who will love them: The person who needs visible proof that the mice are dead.
Traps’ superpowers: Whether you use a glue or a snap trap, these rodent control solutions give proof that the job is done.
Suit yourself: d-CON offers glue boards and glue traps – highly effective and show you that you’ve gotten rid of the problem. There are also covered No View, No Touch snap traps (you still get that “gotcha!” moment without having to look at or come into contact with the dead mouse).
Bonus: d-CON’s new Select-A-Size Glue Traps are customizable, giving you the right size for any nook or cranny in your house.
Now that you know the difference, the choice is yours.
