Rats and mice often enter the crawl space under homes when they find an opening. This can give them an easier way to invade the home if they can find a small vent or gap to get in. They can also do serious damage to any visible wiring, and can cause pipes to burst when they chew away the insulation.

signs of rats/mice in the crawl space include:

  • noise from under the home
  • rodent droppings
  • Gnawing marks on wires, etc.
  • grease marks on walls, etc. from the natural oils on fur
  • stench from rat/mice urine that smells like ammonia
  • nesting debris such as piles of light material such as paper, lint and insulation

Where to Install the A24 Automatic Rat and Mouse trap

Good choices for trap installation:

  • along the perimeter
  • inside corners of the crawl space

Tips for keeping rats and mice out of your crawl space:

  • Completely seal your crawl space — some mice can fit through a hole of about 1/2-inch in size
  • Lay down a vapor barrier
  • Keep hedges, vines and other brush away from the exterior of your home
  • Dig a small trench around your crawl space and pour concrete to deter mice and rats from burrowing under the dirt
