At DoMyOwn.com, you'll find a wide selection of professional do it yourself products for rodent control including baits, bait stations, traps, lures, and rodent control kits.

Mouse and Rat baits are made with a blend of optimal food grade ingredients to make them attractive to rodents. Baits are available in pellet, blox, pack, cake or liquid form.

Baits are typically used outdoors to control rodents before they move indoors. While bait can also be used indoors, be cautioned that rodents might move into walls or other inaccessible spaces before dying, making it difficult to remove them. Whether you are baiting indoors or outdoors baits should never be placed in areas accessible by children and pets. Instead, always secure the bait in tamper resistant bait stations.

Bait Stations are specially designed boxes that can be filled with any kind of rodent bait, keeping it dry and fresh longer. These come in larger sizes for rats and smaller sizes for mice. A good bait station will also include a special key for added safety where children or animals are present. These bait stations can blend in with the surrounding environment or fit underneath appliances.

Traps are a great alternative if using rodent baits is not desirable in a home or business

Rodent traps come in three basic varieties. Snap Traps, Glue Traps, and Humane Live Catch traps.

Snap Traps consists of a spring loaded mechanism that is tied into a space where bait of any kind can be placed. When the bait is removed by a mouse or rat, the spring will fire, snapping the trap shut quickly killing the rodent.

A Glue Trap is covered in sticky glue that can be placed against floors and walls where rodents travel. When the rodent tries to cross the glue it will become trapped, leading to its eventual death.

Humane Live-Catch Traps allow you to catch multiple mice or single rats without harming them and then release them at a far away location.

Rodent Lures are paste-like attractants that can be applied directly to rat and mouse traps.

Using a lure in conjunction with your traps makes them more enticing and draws larger numbers of rodents to the traps. All-in-one Rodent Control Kits. contain carefully selected baits and bait stations that will help you take control of your mouse or rat infestation. This option also saves you money over purchasing the products individually.
