How to take care of nuisance wild life, rodents and pest problems. This is Ed with Critter Control of Tampa Bay. You've got mice in the field outside the house? How do you get rid of them? Getting rid of field mice in an outside situation is a task that can be done. You're going to be able to control the population but you probably won't be able to get rid of them all. First of all, mow it if you can. Get rid of the food source. Cut the grass as low as you can. Eliminate where they can hide. Animals need food, water and a place to sleep. Now if you eliminate some of those aspects you can help correct the problem. What I would also recommend is tamper resistant bait stations that do have poison inside. This one is designed to look like a rock. Once opened, you can put bait inside the bait station.Now I would recommend, highly recommend the bait that just has a hole drilled in it, that's weather proof, and it slides right down on the post. The animal can't take it out. You're not killing anything else but the rodents inside. You can also, if you don't want to use bait, Put a trap inside the bait station and you've finished that, then you have to check it probably on a daily basis. That will only control, the bait itself will probably alleviate the problem, it'll control the population but it won't solve it. This is Ed with Critter Control in Tampa Bay.
