Mouse Baits How To

Mouse Bait How-To’s

When it comes to dealing with mice infestations, many of us don’t want to get within a hundred miles of seeing or touching a dead rodent.

If you’re part of that clan, we’ve got you covered with bait stations. Mice sidle up to eat the tempting food, and then go back to their nest and die later. That means you don’t need to do any clean-up or disposal. Bait stations offer “set it and forget it” convenience. Here are the simple how-to’s:

Pick your station: Which bait station is best for your needs? Find out here:

  • Disposable: Think you’re dealing with just a couple of mice around your house? These discreet devices are perfect; designed for indoor use only, and come pre filled and ready to use. Just toss them when done.
  • Refillable: If you have what might be called an infestation (sorry, but it happens!), then refillable bait stations are a good option. You can use them indoors or out and can replenish the bait supply to prolong their mouse-killing power.

Place your station: Put the bait stations where you’ve seen signs of rodent activity, near walls or in corners, as well as the attic and basement. Mice tend to seek heat, so near major appliances can also be a good spot.

Monitor your station: d-Con’s stations have clear windows so you check whether mice have eaten the bait; once they do, your problem should be solved within a few days. No sign of nibbles? Try moving the bait station to another location.

That’s all it takes to easily and effectively kill mice -- and ditch your rodent-related stress.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many mice are in my house?
It can be difficult to tell exactly how many mice are in your house, which could range from a couple to a full-blown infestation. In short – the more signs you see, the more mice there are likely to be. If you actually see a mouse in the flesh, this is usually a sign that there are more nesting in your home.
Does one mouse mean an infestation?
One mouse doesn’t necessarily mean an infestation and it’s possible that you’ve only got a couple living under your roof – for now. It’s important to remember that a few mice can turn into many due to their high rate of breeding, so if you notice any signs of mouse activity at all, make sure you get on top of the problem quickly with our no-mess Corner Fit Bait Stations.
How to tell if Mice are Gone
Once you’ve tackled your mouse problem you should know they’re gone simply by monitoring the signs that told you they were there in the first place. Over time you should notice that there are no more droppings, and all scratching sounds should have totally stopped. If you’re using bait stations, look out for signs that they’re working by checking for nibble marks on the actual bait, as well as by sprinkling flour around the station and watching out for footprints. No one likes to think of having mice in their home but, unfortunately, it’s incredibly common.
