House mice consume and contaminate food meant for humans, pets, livestock, or other animals.
This is a three-part song, with each part sung by a different character lamenting his fate and the fate of the sinking ship (with the three coming together to sing the very end). Smith: He appears in his cabin, where, shell-shocked, he has taken refuge to go down with his ship. He is the first to realize the ship will sink once it struck the iceberg as badly as it did. Images,snapshots,and pics often capture a sentiment,a mood,a feeling,or even an idea of a person who's at the center of attention. In addition, they cause considerable damage to structures and property, and they can transmit pathogens that cause diseases such as salmonellosis, a form of food poisoning.IDENTIFICATIONHouse mice are small rodents with relatively large ears and small, black eyes. He also realizes that he designed a special davit to hold enough lifeboats for everyone on board.
Ismay is the businessman and White Star executive who thought of the idea to build the largest, grandest ship on the sea (and the largest moving object created by man to that point).
Throughout the years,pictures has become one of the most popular ways to capture memorable moments. He was determined to impress everyone with Titanic's size *and* speed, and is the one who goaded Captain Smith into pushing the engines to full steam ahead. And certainly,for a tantamount of consumer and shoppers you cant put a price tag on family and holiday pics. An adult is about 5 to 7 inches long, including the 3- to 4-inch tail.Droppings, fresh gnaw marks, and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. When he realizes the enormity of what has happened, and realizes rescue will not arrive before the ship sinks, he cannot handle it, and retreats to his cabin to await his doom. He is full of bravado, but when it is clear the ship will sink, he pusillanimously jumps into a lifeboat meant for women and children, and is allowed to leave with it.
Decades after the invention of the first camera, a large number of consumers and shoppers continue to take pics, in a hgh tech fashion. Mouse nests are made from finely shredded paper or other fibrous material, usually in sheltered locations. He leaves his more level-headed crewmen in charge of the evacuation before he drowns, and laments his decisions in his last few moments. As he sits in the lifeboat and hears the death throes he helped bring about, it clearly weighs heavily on his conscience.
Instead of the antiquated bulky cameras with huge lenses,consumers and shoppers frequently use SmartPhones and digital cameras to capture images and to take holiday pics.
From family gatherings,to family picnics to traditional weddings to the holidays,consumers and shoppers often seize the opportunity at planned events and during the holidays for instance Thanksgiving and Christmas to take pictures of loved ones,family,friends and co workers. Mice are active mostly at night, but they can be seen occasionally during daylight hours.While the house mouse hasna€™t been found to be a carrier of hantavirus, the deer mouse, Peromyscus maniculatus, (Figure 2), which sometimes invades cabins and outbuildings in California, harbors the Sin Nombre virus, which causes a rare but often fatal illness known as hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS).
Since founding csaccac Inc in 2010, as Founder and President,I fill many hats including Product Tester and photographer. The deer mouse has larger eyes and a white underside with a distinct line of demarcation between the dark coloration on top and the white underside.
In addition, the tail on the house mouse has almost no fur on it, whereas the tail of the deer mouse is moderately to well furred and is light underneath and dark on top.
And truthfully speaking,in the beginning I experienced some difficulty;however,after I purchased my first digital camera I began to feel comfortable and enjoy the ease of taking pics with a digital camera. Months after I purchased my first digital camera,I set my sights on a tripod, a universal stand to hold my digital camera.
A very adaptable animal, the house mouse often lives in close association with humans, along with Norway rats (Figure 3) and roof rats (Figure 4); however, mice are more common and more difficult to control than rats.
The main reason I purchased a tripod__ at the time, I wanted to create high quality self pics and group pics.
Eventhough, I've had my tripod for some months,I am still learning the ins and outs of both my digital camera and tripod.
Well,if you havent guessed or envisioned what the featured product for the month of November 2013 looks like or remotely even resembles __then as productor tester I guess I'll do the honors first__it's my tripod. They will run horizontally along wire cables or ropes and can jump up to 12 inches from the floor onto a flat surface. House mice frequently enter homes in autumn, when outdoor temperatures at night become colder.In a single year, a female may have 5 to 10 litters of about 5 or 6 young. Young are born 19 to 21 days after conception, and they reach reproductive maturity in 6 to 10 weeks. Eventually, I wanted to find out what the craze had been all about and the reason that consumers seemed to ofA been trading in personal computers for Tablets,_well, at least leaving them at home. The life span of a mouse is usually 9 to 12 months.CONTROLLING HOUSE MICEBecause house mice are so small, they can gain entry into homes and other buildings much more easily than rats. Ultimately, I placed online an order for a NookHD+ then opt to pick up the tech item from the store instead of waiting for it to be shipped to my place of residency. As a result, house mouse infestations are probably 10 to 20 times more common than rat infestations. AA few weeks with the NookHD+, I was hooked_eventhough, IA wasna€™t a fan of touchscreen only. And in all honesty, since the beginning of the Smart Phone craze, I had insisted upon that all of my primary tech gadgets used for work, research and blogging had to be equipped with a QWERTY keyboard. However, in this particular instance,The NookHD+, again, touchscreen only, I made an exception.
When a mouse infestation already exists, some form of population reduction such as trapping or baiting is almost always necessary.A key to successful long-term mouse control is limiting shelter and food sources wherever possible. Trapping works well, especially when a sufficient number of traps are placed in strategic locations. As I continued to learn the ins and outs of my newly purchased NookHD+ , at the same time, I began to inquire about the accessories compatible with the tech gadget. In doing so, I foundA the tech item had a Stylus Pen specifically made to use with the NookHD+. When considering a baiting program, decide if the presence of dead mice will cause an odor or sanitation problem.
Weeks later, I purchased a different kind of Stylus Pen , I noticed while standing atA the checkout counter at Walgreens,pictured next to this article is that Stylus Pen. After removing mice, take steps to exclude them so that the problem doesna€™t recur.Several types of rodenticides are available, which can be purchased as ready-to-use baits that typically are labeled for use against only house mice, Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus), and roof rats (R.
Quite astonishing the Stylus Pen worked wellA with both of my tech gadgets ( Smart Phone & Tablet). Because all rodenticides are toxic to humans, pets, and wildlife, take special precautions to prevent access to baits by children and nontarget animals.SanitationBecause mice can survive in very small areas with limited amounts of food and shelter, controlling them can be very challenging, especially in and around older structures.
Most buildings in which food is stored, handled, or used will support house mice if the mice arena€™t excluded, no matter how good the sanitation. A frequent question a tantamount of consumers and shoppers find themselves entertaining especially during the holidays when manufacturers and retailers offer what they consider to be great deals and bargains. While good sanitation seldom will completely control mice, poor sanitation is sure to attract them and will permit them to thrive in greater numbers. After giving the device a run for its money as well as a brief critique of the various apps and functions,I stated in my review of the Nook HD+ how pleased I was with the tech gadget. If they have few places to hide, rest, build nests, or rear their young, they cana€™t survive in large numbers.ExclusionExclusion is the most successful and permanent form of house mouse control. Further into the critique, I also commented that I was soooo pleased with the tech gadget that I wanted to protect my investment. Based on my income and budget,I considered the purchase of the Nook HD+ to be a major purchase of the year.
Shortly after, I purchased the Nook HD+,I began to look at the recommended accessories for the tech gadget. Seal cracks in building foundations and around openings for water pipes, vents, and utility cables with metal or concrete. Eventually, after I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange 14 day trial period,I chose to protect my investment with a Nook HD+ cover.
As I began to search and think of different items that could be the product of the month for September,I began to heavily weigh in on August's product of the month,the Nook HD+cover.
Hours later,I arrived to the assertion that there's more than one way to protect your investment. Plastic screening, rubber, vinyl, insulating foam, wood, and other gnawable materials are unsuitable for plugging holes used by mice.TrapsTrapping is an effective method for controlling small numbers of house mice. With the assertion___, there's more than one way to protect your investment, I made the final choice to make Smart Phone covers as the product of the month for September.
Although time consuming, ita€™s the preferred method in homes, garages, and other structures where only a few mice are present.
Furthermore, within the past five years,Ive purchased several Smart Phones from Virgin Mobile. Trapping has several advantages as it doesna€™t rely on potentially hazardous rodenticides, it permits the user to view his or her success, and it allows for disposing of trapped mice, thereby eliminating dead mouse odors that may result when poisoning is done within buildings.Snap traps are effective and can be purchased in most hardware and grocery stores. To be truthful, I've even purchased Smart Phone insurance,a good choice because a few months later my Smart Phone had an accident. The simple, wooden mouse-size snap trap is the least expensive option, but some people prefer the newer plastic, single-kill mouse traps because they are easier to set and clean. Despite all of the stuff I tried, sampled, tasted and tested during the recent months, as a result of a long review and critique besides from featuring the Smart Phone as a product of the month,I began to think of the different ways Ia€™ve used to protect my Smart Phone as an alternative product of the month. Snap traps with large plastic treadles are especially effective, but finding the best locations to set traps is often more important than what type of trap is used.
For instance,Smart Phone insurance has been one the ways I protect my investment from unexpected accidents. Traps can be baited with a variety of foods; peanut butter is the most popular, because it is easy to use and very attractive to mice. Set the triggers lightly so the traps will spring easily.Multiple-capture live traps for mice, such as the Victor Tin Cat and the Ketch-All, also are available from hardware stores and pest control suppliers. Ostensibly, there's more than one way to protect your Smart Phone from accidents such as, for example, you accidentally drop and break your Smart Phone or in some weird, odd, freak accident as you rush out the door you accidentally step on your Smart Phone or heaven forbids the same thing happens to you that happen to me, a few months ago, I dropped my Smart Phone in the toilet.
Without a question, eschewing further debate, Smart Phone insurance is a great investment for consumers and shoppers who use their Smart Phone daily and for work. Best of all, Smart Phone insurance usually saves the consumer from digging deep into their pockets. So, what about before those mishaps and accidents, if you havena€™t figured it out__ there's more than one way to protect your investment. Even though, at first, I might of skipped over protecting my investments, I am more open to the idea of investing and protecting my major purchases.
As with snap traps, for existing mouse populations ita€™s important to use enough traps to achieve control in a timely manner. Here's an example of what I am talking about, I currently have several Smart Phone covers to protect my Smart Phone from breakage, moisture, and malfunctioning. These traps need to be checked frequently, and dead mice should be removed for disposal.Set traps behind objects, in dark corners, and in places where there is evidence of mouse activity.
Traps can be set on ledges, on top of pallets of stored materials, or in any other locations where mice are active. Varying in price,color,size and shape, most of today's Smart Phone manufacturers and retailers offer to consumers and shoppers Smart Phone covers as an accessory. From passwords, to anti-theft apps, to screen locks and codes, there's more than one way to protect your investment. Mice seldom venture far from their shelter and food supply, so space traps no more than about 10 feet apart in areas where mice are active.Glue Boards. Regardless of the price, and hopefully it is within your budget, a true frugal savvy shopper knows the importance of protecting their investment. An alternative to traps are glue boards, which catch and hold mice that are attempting to cross them in much the same way flypaper catches flies. They are available at many places where other rodent control products are sold.A major drawback to glue boards and other live-catch traps is the trapped mouse might not die quickly, and you will need to kill it by delivering a sharp blow to the base of the skull using a sturdy rod or stick. Releasing live-caught mice back to the outdoors frequently promotes increased mouse problems. Above everything else,both I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange process,quite remarkable,I even have the receipt to prove it. Mice caught in glue traps can struggle for quite some time, and for this reason some people consider them to be less humane than kill traps.If using glue boards, place them along walls where mice travel. Unlike sooo manyA items, I ve returned and exchanged in the past,__it,meaning my Nook HD+ survived the fourteenth days as printed on the receipt.
A business practice that's part of Barnes and Noble store policy that allows customers fourteen days to return an item. Dona€™t use glue boards to catch deer mice (Peromyscus species), as captured mice often urinate and defecate while stuck to the trap, thus increasing the risk of your exposure to hantavirus. In short,the 14th day, adhering to store policy was the final day that I couldA actually return my Nook HD+ and get cash back. Nontarget animals that become caught on the glue board can be removed in most cases by using vegetable oil as a solvent to loosen the glue.
It goes without saying ,I readA the instructions,totally unavoidable with a new tech gadget,as well as,downloaded apps,and,uploaded wallpapers.
Extreme temperatures also may affect the tackiness of glue boards.BaitsBaits to control rodents are formulated with an attractant (generally food) and a rodenticide (toxin). Changes in rodenticide regulations went into effect in mid-2011 in an effort to prevent rodenticide hazards to wildlife and pets and reduce accidental exposure to children. Not quite sure,on the day I purchased my Nook HD+__ifA in fact, I would be satisfied with my purchase,I chose at the time not to purchase any kind of accessories. These federal EPA restrictions now permit manufacturers to produce, for sale to the general public, only rat and mouse baits that are packaged in ready-to-use, disposable bait stations.
As it turns out,I was soooo pleased with my purchase of the Nook HD+,I wanted to protect my investments. Agricultural producers and professional pest control personnel are able to obtain more types of rodenticides in various formulations, some of which are restricted use pesticides.Anticoagulant Rodenticides. Anticoagulants are blood-thinning drugs that cause an animala€™s blood to lose the ability to clot, damaging capillaries and resulting in internal bleeding that is fatal. These active ingredients are used at very low levels and the onset of symptoms is delayed, so the rodent doesna€™t avoid the bait because of its taste or the onset of illness. When prepared with good-quality cereals and other ingredients, anticoagulant baits provide good to excellent house mouse control when baits are fresh and when placed in suitable locations so as to attract mice.The various anticoagulant active ingredients currently registered for use against house mice in California are listed in Table 1.
It doesnt matter if you're on lunch break,on a mini vacation,at a webinar or conference,filling out an online report or having to send emails can be a hassle if you don't have a wifi connection,a Broadband device is just one of the many tech gadgets that consumers and shoppers frequently use to get an internet connection.
A rodent feeding on anticoagulant bait usually wona€™t die until 2 to 6 days following ingestion of a lethal dose. Constantly,on the go,I wanted to have access to wifiA while away from my place of residency. Because,I perform an arrary task that frequently requires wifi access ,I purchased a Broadband to Go device from Virgin Mobile. Egregiously,as a Virgin Mobile customer and fan,I live by Virgin Mobile products except in the case of Virgin Mobile wifi devices. The same or similar trade names may be used for products with different active ingredients.This strategy of bait application, which is often needed for optimum rodent control, can result in a rodent ingesting an overdose of the second-generation anticoagulants, which are more effective in part because they persist longer in the rodenta€™s body than do the first-generation anticoagulants.
Thus, they also have the potential to be hazardous to predators and scavengers, which may consume poisoned rodents. This secondary hazard from anticoagulants, as well as the primary hazard of nontarget animals directly ingesting rodent baits, is substantially reduced when baits are applied and used properly, according to label directions.Because of the potentially greater hazard of second-generation anticoagulants to children, household pets, and nontarget wildlife, these active ingredients are no longer allowed to be manufactured for sale to the general public. Recently,I purchased Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 to conciliate my worries about not being able to access wifi home.
Some of the second-generation rodenticides now labeled for use only by agricultural producers or professional pest control personnel may be restricted to applications in and around agricultural buildings.Anticoagulants have the same effect on nearly all warm-blooded animals, but the sensitivity to these toxicants varies among species, and larger animals generally require a larger dose of toxicant than do smaller animals. Aside from very slow internet speed,the device could only connect to one tech gadget and,the 3G USB plug n play stick broke too easily.
Dogs are more susceptible to anticoagulant poisoning than are many other mammals, and small- to medium-sized dogs that seek out and consume rodents or rodent carcasses could be at greatest risk.
Symptoms of anticoagulant poisoning in mammals include lethargy, loss of color in soft tissues such as the lips and gums, and bleeding from the mouth, nose, or intestinal tract. Vitamin K1 is the antidote for anticoagulant rodenticides, although in cases of severe poisoning a whole blood transfusion is also used.Other Rodenticides. Three other active ingredients are registered and used as rodenticides to control house mice and rats in Californiaa€”bromethalin, cholecalciferol, and zinc phosphide (Table 2).
Although not anticoagulants, application directions for bromethalin and cholecalciferol are somewhat similar to those for anticoagulant rodenticides. These two materials are formulated to serve as chronic rodenticides so that house mice will have the opportunity to feed on exposed baits one or more times over the period of one to several days. Affordable,great to have on hand for shopping emergencies,the latest in recycling,a recyclable tote makes shopping less of a hassle. Bait acceptance is generally good when fresh, well-formulated products are used.Zinc phosphide differs in that it is an acute toxicant that causes death of a house mouse within several hours after a lethal dose is ingested. Ditching the old biodegradeable plastic bags for a recyclable tote,it's a smart move and a great investment for frugal,savvy,and environmentally conscious consumers and shoppers.Available in most local chain stores and at grocery stores,recyclable totes are becoming the better choice than leaving stores with the traditional biodegradeable plastic bag.
Because zinc phosphide baits often require prebaiting (offering mice similar but nontoxic bait before applying the zinc phosphide bait) to get adequate acceptance, ita€™s not commonly used against house mice and is infrequently available to consumers.
Part of a movement to get consumers and shoppers involved in recycling and to think about going green,consumers and shoppers now have the option of trading in those plastic bags for a recyclable tote.
A frequent shopper,I usually purchase a couple of recyclable totes to hold store purchases and other stuff.
Eventhough,I like having the choice to purchase a recyclable tote,I havent completely stop using biodegradeable plastic bags. The same or similar trade names may be used for products with different active ingredients.Bait Placement and Bait Stations. However,I have to point out the fact that when a consumer and shoppers purchase a recyclable tote they're not limited to using the tote only in that store,that's why they're called recyclable totes because they can be used more than once. All rodenticide baits must be used carefully according to the label directions, which have become more specific and more restrictive. In fact, most recycable totes last for more than a week,I should know because I still have a few leftover from the previous month.
Where ita€™s impossible to exclude rodents from structures, mouse control can be accomplished by establishing permanent bait stations in buildings and around the perimeters of buildings. Place fresh bait in these stations to control invading mice before mouse populations become established.
Check bait stations regularly and replace bait if it gets old or moldy, because mice wona€™t eat stale bait.Baits and bait stations containing bait now have more restrictive regulations regarding locations for use. A great deal,a really good find,a price you wont find anywhere else,and the best price among competitors,I love a great sale and I love rewards for shopping. Different designs of commercially manufactured bait stations may be required, depending on the particular situation and the bait formulation used. Savings and Rewards,for most consumers and shoppers,it's all about getting the best price for items purchase daily.
For example, some labels state tamper-resistant bait stations must be used if children, pets, nontarget mammals, or birds may access the bait.
From household supplies to groceries,anyone who shops frequently knows consumers and shoppers love a really good sale_,the economic recession of 2008 could be the culprit.
Some baits require that they be contained within bait stations for all outdoor, above-ground applications.
In fact,since the 2008 economic recession savings and rewards has become extremely important to American families on a budget. Certain prepackaged bait stations intended for sale to homeowners can be used only inside structures and are prohibited for use in any area accessible to pets or for use outdoors.
For many American consumers and shoppers,the unexpected downturn of the American economy caused a disruption in their daily activies thus forcing consumer and shoppers to rethink the way they shop and how they shop. Other baits or bait stations may also be used around the periphery of structures or within 50 feet of a structure.Because house mice seldom travel far from their shelter to find food, many product labels suggest making bait placements at 8- to 12-foot intervals. As a frequent shopper and consumer,I am constantly looking for a great deal and sales on items I purchase regularly,mainly because I do live on a strict budget. Place bait boxes next to walls, with the openings close to the wall, or in other places where mice are active. Admittedly,after the 2008 economic recession,I rediscovered coupons,and began clipping coupons frequently. In all cases, the user must follow label directions.Remove and properly dispose of all uneaten bait at the end of a control program.
In addition to clipping coupons,I also began to check sale ads at home and at the door of stores before shopping. In addition, ita€™s wise to collect and properly dispose of any dead rodents found during the course of a rodenticide application. Along with making a shopping list,clipping coupons at home,checking sale ads at the door and comparing prices,these days one of the best ways to save and get the best deals,I feel without a question has to be with a savings and reward card.
You can pick them up using a sturdy plastic bag inverted on your hand, and either seal them in the bag for disposal with household garbage or bury them in a location where they wona€™t be easily dug up by pets or scavengers.Rodent Repeller DevicesAlthough mice are easily frightened by strange or unfamiliar noises, they quickly become accustomed to regularly repeated sounds. And speaking honestly, a savings and rewards card from your local chain store should be a consumer or shoppers BF(bestie).
Ultrasonic sounds, those above the range of human hearing, have very limited use in rodent control, because they are directional and dona€™t penetrate behind objects.
A must have for consumers and shoppers who seriously want to save,a savings and rewards card. There is little evidence that sound, magnetic, or vibration devices of any kind will drive established mice or rats from buildings or provide adequate control. Despite their lack of effectiveness, many such devices continue to be sold through magazine advertisements and at some retail outlets.PredatorsSome dogs and cats will catch and kill mice and rats.
Throughout the years, my experience with last minute shopping in most instances was not too pleasant.
There are few situations, however, in which they will sufficiently control rodent populations. Admittedly,I empathize as well as concur with consumers who express sentiments that last minute shopping makes the shopper(consumer) feel uncomfortable and forlorn with the just thought of buying a gift at the last minute.
Around most structures, mice can find many places to hide and rear their young out of the reach of such predators. Often tight on funds to purchase a gift ahead of time,last minute shopping for an overwhelmed consumer with a limited budget could cause the consumer to be late and in some instance not to attend the event or special function.
Cats probably cana€™t eliminate existing mouse populations, but in some situations they may be able to prevent reinfestation once mice have been controlled. Subsequently, over the years, I have come to realize that last minute shopping it's not the best of fun.
In urban and suburban areas, ita€™s common to find rodents living in close association with cats and dogs, relying on their food for nourishment. As a result, I definitely would not recommend last minute shopping to a consumer as a shopping tip. Unequivocally, shopping for special events and functions such as finding an appropriate could take several visits different stores.
Finding the appropriate could mean spending an entire day in a Hallmark store reading cards, it could also mean spending all day on the phone with friend or relatives discussing gift registry,preferences,stores,likes and dislike of the recipient. Ostensibly,the older you get the adults in your life expect two things from you one not to embarrass them in public and two if you don't have a gift to bring at least show up at special functions on time.
Indeed, an earnest shopper as well as a meticulous shopper knows finding the right gift or card for a special function could require hours of shopping and visiting different stores. Shopping done precipitously could result in purchasing the wrong size,color, or something way out in left field. Don't wait until the last minute to shop for a party,baby showers,bachelorette bash,birthdays,holidays ,and anniversaries avoid uncomfortableness and the feeling of being inadequate,plan the week before.
On certain days, I have even shopped the day of the event that often leaves me feeling embarrassed ashamed, and guilty about my finances even worse depress. Incontrovertibly,last minute shopping in many instances could causes the consumer to become distraught,exasperated, and disconcerted not surprisingly all the emotions take away from the planned day. What's more important being punctilious for the planned event or arriving with a hand picked gift for the recipient or recipients? Ultimately,the answer remains with the shopper (consumer) The answer should be non bias and based on the event as well as the recipient and not the shoppers wallet . The meticulous consumer that normally keeps track of birthdays, holidays,and anniversaries with calendars,through emails,P DA's ,Smart phones and other tech savvy gadgets of courses would not necessarily share the same feelings of a last minute shopper .
