First off, the adage of "an ounce of prevention." is to simply to keep your place clean. Accumulated or poorly closed garbage will invariably attract vermin. Keeping food containers sealed, taking trash out regularly and maintaining tidiness, rodents and other pests will eventually look elsewhere for food.
If pests have already become a problem, no-kill traps are readily available online. No-kill traps have many benefits over using toxins for pest control. Besides being safe to use in homes where there are children, no-kill traps remove the danger of your cat accidentally ingesting or biting a poisoned rodent.
These traps are also reusable, making them both a greener alternative to producing excess waste, and more economical in the long run should one need to trap another pest. Try using peanut butter as bait.
There are also trap and release programs. The caught rodent can be released into a wooded area or someplace far from the trap site. Another alternative is to contact a wildlife control organization.
Other than rodents, wildlife organizations can also humanely evict other pests, such as possums and raccoons. Conducting a search either online or in a business directory using keywords such as, "no-kill pest control" and "humane trap and release," will provide up a comprehensive listing of participating local organizations and companies.
The Humane Society of the United States can also assist in finding a wildlife control company that uses humane practices.
Pest control doesn't have to be toxic to you, the environment, or your pets. There are many eco-friendly and humane alternatives are available that are safe to use. Simple, tidy upkeep prevent pests from becoming a problem and no-kill methods can eradicate the problem while minimizing your pet's exposure to potentially fatal poisons.
