Attracting rodents when you are trying to control an infestation may seem counterintuitive, but it is actually an effective part of treatment. Rodent lures attract rats and mice to poison baits, which will lead them to spread the bait to other rodents and eventually exterminate a nest. Our professional grade rodent attractants will guide rats toward bait for faster control.

What Attracts Rodents?

There are two main things that can act as a mouse attractant or a rat attractant but there are several things you can do to minimize the impact of these factors. Here at Do My Own Pest Control you’ll find all the latest rodent lure products to suit your particular needs.

•    Food - This is by far the most likely reason that rats or mice will enter your home and stay there. Should there be even a small amount of food out in the open you’re basically broadcasting to any pests that they are welcome in your home. To ameliorate this issue, the first thing you should concentrate on is cleanliness; this will go further than you might think in decreasing the size and impact of a rodent infestation.
•    Shelter - After finding food, the second thing in the hierarchy of needs for rodents is shelter. This usually comes in the form of open spaces in human dwellings, such as attics, basements and crawlspaces. Rodents can easily form nests in walls and often the entrances and exits are not obvious as the animals can fit through incredibly small holes and might even gain entry from the exterior of the home.

Knowing the reasons that a rodent infestation might begin, there are a couple things you can do other than those already mentioned to get rid of these annoying pests.

Traps Are an Effective Way to Kill Rodents

It’s well known that rat traps and mouse traps are one of the best and quickest ways to get rid of rodent problems, however there are a couple of things you should know that will help you use traps to their full potential.

•    Traps Are Virtually Useless Without a Lure

The snap trap, which is the most common form of trap, relies on the use of rodent lures in order to get the mouse or rat to trigger the mechanism. This means that you’ll have to find a lure that will get the job done and attract the most rodents.

•    Not All Rodent Lures Are the Same

The fact of the matter is that there are many people who will say that the old fashioned methods of how to attract mice and how to attract rats are as good as it gets. This way of thinking is a bit outdated, as there are in fact numerous products that are indeed superior to using common food products such as peanut butter or cheese to bait a mouse or rat trap. These specially formulated rodent lures are much more powerful and will attract a larger number of rodents to your traps, thereby getting rid of the problem much faster.
