Rats and mice can become a big problem on a farm. The often infest horse stables, chicken coops and other areas of your barn. They are attracted to animal food and can be a health hazard by contaminating food and water for farm animals. They also contaminate hey needed for livestock. Rats and mice can spread disease to animals. They can also damage farm equipment by gnawing on electrical wires.

Signs of rats/mice on farm or barn include:

  • rat or mouse droppings (small brown pellet-like droppings
  • brown grease marks on structures (from natural oil on fur)
  • rat or mouse tracks can sometimes be detected
  • bite marks on trees and other objects
  • look for “rat runs” — narrow paths in the grass rats repeatedly run along

Where to Install the A24 Automatic Rat and Mouse trap

The sooner rats and mice are trapped, the less time they will have to increase in population. A rodent infestation can quickly grow out of control without the proper trapping.

Good choices for trap installation:

  • along walls or in corners of the barn or other structures
  • Install along fences
  • near animal feed areas
  • install near the opening of burrows

Tips to prevent rats and mice in your farm or barn:

  • Keep garbage in cans and tightly covered
  • Trim vines and shrubs away from your home
  • Check the perimeter of your home and other structures for gaps (gaps should not be more than 1/4-inch)
