Many of Kansas's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Kansas's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Manhattan Wildlife Removal Tip: What should I do with a house mouse after I catch it?

While you may not want a mouse inside your home, that does not mean that you want to take the extraordinary measures of doing something to terminate its life. Some view these creatures is just as important to the earth as any human being is, and thus would protect the animal at all costs.

To accomplish this, they have no problem with employing traps, but want to ensure that the animal is just captured and not harmed. While there are several different kinds of out there that will terminate a mouse immediately, there are others that enable you to simply capture the animal so that you can relocate it to another place. This allows you to do the humane thing of saving the mouse from termination, but gives you the ability to get it out of your home. Now what you want to know is what should you do with the house mouse after you catch it?

One such option you can employ is to simply make a pet out of it. If you have a cage to put the animal in, there is no problem with you being able to keep it as your pet. Some would tell you that this is a concern because wild mice like this can carry parasites and diseases, these animals that have been living inside your home are less likely to pose a health risk to you. If you care for them properly then you should have no problem with them being inside your, as long as they are caged.

Another option you can choose is to simply take the animal outside and let it go. There are two problems with this, however. The first of them is that the animal may find a way to get right back inside your house. If you have not gone around the outside of your home to ensure that cracks, holes, gaps, and other potential entryways are closed, you can be sure that this animal is going to get right back inside.

Secondly, just letting the mouse outside in a habitat that it is not used to is almost ensuring that it will be killed by a predator. There are snakes, birds, raccoons, and other critters outside that would see that mouse as the perfect snack for it to have as a meal. Because the animal has no idea where to live, where to find food, or where to find shelter to protect itself, its likelihood of survival is quite limited. You may actually be better off if you would've killed the animal upfront than leaving it outside terrified and unsure about its own survival.

Before choosing this as an option, you may want to contact your local animal control agency to ask them what they recommend as a place to take the mouse where it survival much more likely. This will help you to feel better about capturing and releasing the animal, and will also ensure that its possibility of survival is greatly increased.
