Yeah such a amazing technique you have mentioned to get our mouse from our home..

Despite the possible sarcasm, I published the previous comment.

I wrote this post at the request of a property manager and based on feedback from pest control companies and from what I've seen while working in homes. So often residents try to contribute to pest control by purchasing and setting mouse traps, but they set them wrong.

Often the traps are placed in the middle of a counter, on top of the microwave, or against the wall with the trigger end away from the wall.

I realize this post is somewhat elementary, but (as with so many things about pest control in low income housing) a very small effort to educate can go a long way towards making pest control efforts more effective.

Another common one is showing residents that their stove top lifts up so they can clean under it.
