There's a Mouse in the House: When DIY Mouse Control Goes Wrong

Having a mouse in the house is a real problem. Unfortunately, one mouse rarely comes alone, meaning if you've seen one, you're probably dealing with an infestation. Common sense would tell you that this would be a good time to invest in mouse traps.

After reading the list below, however, perhaps you'll realize that common sense isn't always to be trusted.

Reasons Not to Try DIY Mouse Control:

1. It's all on you. You must research the best traps or poisons, go to the store to buy them, set them up, and then clean up. This is time-consuming.

2. Most mousetraps are not reusable. Because of this, even if you are successful in killing one or two mice with a trap, you'll need a fresh trap for each mouse in your house. If you're dealing with an infestation, this method could be pricey. 

3. Poisons aren't safe in the hands of the inexperienced. After all, they're poisons. You shouldn't consider setting them out in your house, especially if you have small children present.  

4. Both "Catch and Release" traps and standard traps leave you with further complications. "Catch and Release" traps leave you with the question of where and when to safely release the mouse back into the wild, with no assurance that he won't turn around and invade your home or another home in the neighborhood. Standard traps, of course, leave you to deal with a body. 

Rather than agonize over these issues yourself, the best thing to do is to save time, money, and hassle by consulting a professional.
