True Value offers great tips and advice on their Start Right Start Here page. They offer projects that range from beginner to advanced and inside vs outside. Every year around this time we begin to see the increase in customers looking for assistance with indoor rodents. This year, even though we still have very mild temperatures, has been no different.
“What do I need to get a squirrel out of my attic?”
“It sounds like something is coming through the wall.”
“We’re seeing droppings in our garage or basement.”
“My wife moved her and the kids out until I produce a rat corpse.”
OK… so the last one is stretching it a little, regardless, we in the hardware store are getting to educate our customers on spring traps, glue traps, live traps, and poisons (and occasionally we’ll get the guy who wants to electrocute the rodent with a rat zapper.
Anyway, back to my original point… True Value has created a great resource that explains how to get rid of rodents. The remind you that you should do some preliminary inspection, consider safety when trying to trap/kill rodents, tips on sealing openings to try and keep future rodents out, how to pick the right trap or poison and how to bait the traps.
Remember that we are available to answer questions and help you select the right products to succeed at your projects.
So hopefully you can produce the corpse.
