What product(s) do you recommend for killing a rat or mouse living in a wall?

I have a mouse or rat living in my wall. What product and technique would you recommend to kill it?

Answer:

We recommend using either glue boards or snap traps( indoors to get rid of rodents. It is important to use the appropriate size trap as a mouse trap is not strong enough to trap a rat and a rat trap is not sensitive enough to trap a mouse. Using baits indoors can lead to a dead rat/mouse in an inaccessible area that causes odor and secondary insect infestations. Read the following articles for great tips on indoor rodent control:
