Tried, Tested, and True
The Order Rodentia is comprised of over 2,000 species, which are subdivided into many families. The Family Muridae is the largest, containing nearly two-thirds of all rodent species. This family includes several subfamilies and includes sand rats, gerbils, crested rats and old world rats and mice.

This family includes several subfamilies and includes sand rats, gerbils, crested rats and old world rats and mice. Most rodents that can be found in the urban areas are pests while those that thrive in rural towns are known to destroy crops. Thus, rodent control is essential.
Rodent Control Procedures
It is critical to inspect rodent activity before any rodent control program to eliminate rodents. The best time to check is during the rodent's period of high activity (at dusk or just after dark). Rodent inspection includes looking for their droppings (fecal material), gnaw marks, grease marks, looking for their runways and burrows. Mice, Roof Rats, and Norway Rats have different habits. Understanding their distinctive behaviors will help you with inspection around your property.
Rodents only need to eat a small amount of bait for it to be lethal, so if you notice there's not a large amount of bait missing, don't worry, it's still working. An ideal rodenticide is one that is highly toxic to rodents in small quantities, nontoxic to nontarget species, and avoids bait shyness and bait refusal.
Glue traps will capture mice and have their advantages and disadvantages. They are convenient and clean, the whole thing is disposed of, mouse and all. They are nontoxic and so are especially useful in situations where small children or pets could get into poison bait or could get “snapped” in regular mouse traps.
MONITORING AND MAINTENANCE
Use exclusion and sanitation techniques to prevent rodents from being able to access your building in a safe and healthy manner. The most efficient way to combat your rodent problem is to rid your premises of infestations at the very first opportunity. Effective methods, such as sealing entry points, can limit the rodents' ability to enter buildings and can prevent future invasions from recurring..
