Should You Trap and Release Mice In Your Home?

Some people have a very strong objection to killing mice or other rodents, and would rather take the non-lethal approach to dealing with them. Their preference is to trap the mouse then release it away from their home, safely. There are many reasons why you may feel this way, but there are still a few problems that can arise from trapping and releasing mice from your home.

Mice Are Dangerous Creatures

Mice carry a variety of diseases, including:

  • Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome
  • Typhus fever
  • Lyme disease
  • The plague

They also leave behind urine trails which can be difficult to clean up. People often choose trapping as a humane solution because they don’t want to kill an animal if they can avoid it – but if you don’t plan on taking the mouse far away from the house and leaving them somewhere safe then it could end up dying in your walls or attic instead. You could also have a problem with the smell of decomposing mice. Where there is one mouse, there are almost always several.

Understanding the Importance of Ridding Your Home of Mice

So, when you are thinking about whether or not to trap and release the mouse, keep in mind that this will likely be an ongoing cycle. Unless you can find a new home for your mice friend, trapping and releasing it back into your neighborhood is only going to lead to more issues in the future – both with decaying rodents in your walls and having another mouse appear in short order.

It’s better to take care of the rodent problem in one go, rather than re-trapping an animal that has almost no chance of surviving outside over winter.
