Having mice in your house can be a real problem. They can get into your food and contaminate it, as well as damage your wires and insulation. Mice can even climb into the insides of your stove and oven and make a home there. If you have mice, you need to get rid of them as quickly as possible. Getting rid of them on your own can be challenging, so you might want to consider hiring a service that will do mouse removal for you.
One way these services can get rid of the mice for you is to live-trap the mice in your house. If you choose this method, the service will place traps in several places around your home. These traps won't kill the mice but will collect them. When there are mice in the trap, the removal service will return to your house, take the trap away, and put in a new one. The removal service will take the mice to a location away from your home and release the mice in that spot. That way, no mice are dying in your house, and you won't have to worry about those particular mice coming back into your house. If you have issues with the idea of killing animals, this can be a good way for you to handle getting mice out of your house.
Snap traps kill the mice when the mouse takes the bait. One example of these kinds of traps is the traditional mouse trap. The mouse takes the bait, stepping on a trigger. The trigger causes a locking bar to release, and then a bar snaps across the mouse, breaking its neck. There are other snap trap-style mouse traps. One kind of trap will be more solid, and instead of just a bar that snaps across the mouse, the entire top of the trap snaps down. That makes it more likely that the trap will get the mouse, and you will get the desired result. If the removal service has placed some of these traps, you will need to call them if you hear one of them go off so that they can replace the trap.
