Snap traps are used in the interior and tamper resistant bait stations are used on the exterior.

Outside bait stations are needed because mice and rats breed 6-8 times per year.
With a gestation period of 26 days, offspring are able to reproduce in 6-8 weeks.
Within 1 year, a healthy female rat can produce 6-8 litters with 6-8 pups in each litter.
The offspring reach sexual maturity in 6-8 weeks.
At any time, as many as 30% of the females in a population may be pregnant.

Rats and mice deficate on children's toys, barbecues, lawn chairs and tables and other items outside.

Rodents gnaw on fruit trees - especially Myer lemon trees - in many cases killing or severely damaging the tress.
