From past few years, the issues related to rodent infestation are increasing in urban and suburban areas as well. Many homeowners in the United States keep on complaining about frequent visits of rodents to their premises.

But they can often disturb your sleep at night while making noise in the attic or your kitchen. Rodents do carry several harmful disease viruses that can get transferred to the pets and humans around. The food contaminated by rodent feces and urine marks is quite harmful to everyone else.

One of the best solutions to take rats out of the house is using traps, but a problem occurs when you have a trap shy rodent at Colorado home. These special type of rats or mice are capable enough to avoid the trap because they have already observed that these structures are harmful. But having a trap shy rodent doesn’t mean that you cannot find any way to get rid of it. Rather, you need to be little careful and active enough to capture such type of rodents. The most important thing you can do is set up the trap at the right location, at the right time.

First of all, start by observing the places where Colorado rodent keeps on visiting more often. It will help you to determine the exact location where trap must be located. It can be around rodent nest or the area where it comes often to collect some food. Prefer to set the trap in night hours because this is the peak time of rodent movement in your premises. There is no doubt to say that rodents are intelligent animals and they can easily observe a new thing in the surrounding. They usually have a habit of avoiding things that are new and hence, they can ditch your trap as well. In order to make the rodent comfortable with the trap, prefer to place it a few days ago in the area where rodent keep on moving more often. Do not set the trap; just let it be in the rodent’s path like a normal object so that rodent can observe its presence for a few days and get friendly with its presence. Then, after a few days, place bait in it and set the trap. The rodent will definitely come closer to pick the food from this familiar object and will ultimately get trapped. 

Make sure you use the right type of bait to attract Arvada rodents. Some of the most recommended options are marshmallows, cheese, gumdrops, peanut butter, dental floss, and beef. Also, it is important to use the right type of trap; the best choice is a live cage trap that does not cause any physical harm to the rodent.
