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.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Saline county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Salina animal control for wildlife issues.

Salina Wildlife Removal Tip: What to do about a trap-shy house mouse

Traps have been used to capture and kill mice for generations. Because of the fact that mice have found the homes and food of people to be the ideal source to assist them in their own survival, they have built nests in people's homes for thousands of years, eaten their food, and lived off of their waste for as long as people have recorded the existence of mice.

To handle this problem, the trap was developed as a means to either capture or permanently terminate the life of the mouse. Most of us are quite familiar with these traps, as you said a piece of bait on the mechanism, waiting for the mouse to grab that bait off, releasing the mechanism and killing the animal. It has been a highly effective means of terminating these animal's life for generations.

As successful as these traps have been, there are some mice that simply refused to go for the bait. Most of us have used such things as cheese or bread to entice the animal to make its way towards the trap, but there are those mice out there who either instinctually have figured out that there is danger to the trap or they simply refused to come close to the mechanism. This means that your surefire means to resolve your mouse problem simply isn't working. So what do you do about a trap shy house mouse?

The important part to realize is that as long as there are other sources of food available to the mouse then it is not going to come around your trap. You have to make it so that it's only option is to go after whatever you are offering as bait.

To accomplish this, where you want to start is by making sure that you have done everything possible to eliminate other sources of food. All food that you have purchased needs to be stored in airtight containers so that the mouse cannot get to them. You should thoroughly clean counters and floors each night so that there are no crumbs or stains on the floor or countertops that will entice the mouse to turn to those sources for food. Don't allow your kids to eat out in the living room or other places in the house so there aren't crumbs left behind. Pick up dishes each night so these don't become a source. Remove everything possible that the mouse could get to for food and your trap is going to be much more effective.

Next, you need to improve the bait that you were using. You want something that has a stronger odor but a more enticing one as well. She's can be a very good option because of its strong order, but look at getting other kinds of cheese that have an even stronger smell. Also look for things that are sweeter tasting, such as peanut butter. This can be the ideal food to entice the mouse to come to your trap as well.
