A bait station is not a trap. ... A bait station holds the bait securely inside. Rodents do not die in the bait station, so don't expect to find any there. Instead, a mouse or rat enters the station, eats the bait, leaves the station, and usually goes back to its nest where it dies. Rodent bait boxes are an ideal resource to place on the exterior of your home or business to reduce rodent populations.
Exclusion services should be in place before you have rodent issues to prevent infestations and damage to A/C duct work and attic insulation. Exclusion services become a requirement once an infestation has occurred as any rodent entryway will attract new rodent colonies to your home even after you've removed current rodents.
