Should Baits or Snap Traps Be Used to Keep Mice Away?
Pest control products containing poisons and chemicals can be most effective when getting rid of rodents. Spring-loaded snap traps can be effective in snapping or detecting mice. Neither option is considered a safe pest control method to use around children or pets. The accidental ingestion of mouse poison could potentially harm a child or animal, and curious fingers, paws or snouts could be injured by a snap trap.
In this case, always make sure use bait stations when using snap traps or poisonous baits around children and pets.
