Did you know the examples of common trapping techniques?
Here are some examples of common trapping techniques:
- Snap Traps are spring-loaded traps that kill rodents or other small animals quickly and humanely.
- Glue Boards are adhesive traps that trap insects, rodents, and other small animals by trapping them to a sticky surface.
- Live Traps: these traps capture pests alive, allowing their safe release into the wild. Live traps can be used for rodents, squirrels, and other small animals.
- Electronic Traps: these traps kill rodents, insects, and other pests using an electric shock. They are often battery-powered and can be effective in quickly eliminating pests.
The choice of method depends on the pest type, the infestation’s severity, and the situation’s specific circumstances. Using pest control solutions safely and responsibly is important to protect human health and the environment.
