Pest Control/mice in kids sandbox


Took off the cover and saw a mouse. How should i proceed? Something safe I can do do deter mice yet be safe for the kids? 8x8 sand box. Thanks

Hey Alex!

Winter is quickly approaching and with colder temperatures mice and rats are urged to seek out shelters to survive. The best way to combat the area if there are many is to have a bait station or bait box. You can also use traps and glue boards. This link will give you everything you need to prevent them from coming back. The bait station is also child safe and tamper proof.

I hope this helps!
