“The book offers a pretty good variety of catching and preventing future problems, so you're definitely getting your money's worth. Definitely a good pick up for a DIY type of person with a mouse running about.”
Unless you live in Disneyland and your name is Mickey Mouse, rodents are no fun. If you have mice or rats in your home, the only thing you can really think about is how to get rid of them.
“How to Eliminate Rodent Problems” can help you with strategies of identification and elimination, as well as prevention of these pests in both your home and yard.
Excerpt from the Book:
“The first step in eliminating a rodent problem is to figure out which opponent you’re facing. For example, mice proliferate so much that you’re bound to catch a glimpse of an actual rodent. In other cases, as with the shy mole, you’ll need to analyze other signs. Even though all rodents have some similarities, each has its own patterns of eating and moving about. So if you know what to look for, it’s usually not too hard to narrow down your particular perpetrator. Successful eradication hinges on proper identification, because knowing what pest you’re dealing with will determine the correct size and style of trap, or the type of poison you use.”
