  • The Rodent Trapping Tip Sheet provides general information on the use of snap traps to address a mouse or rat infestation. IPM’s emphasis is on prevention and avoidance of infestations, so the information provided should not be interpreted as a permanent and/or ongoing response to rodent infestations.

Pigeons and other birds can create problems historic  structures but more problematically their nests and carcasses are a prime source of dermestid infestations.  Christina Cain wrote a Denver Museum of Art Case Study on an infestation created by a bird carcass. Visit the Bird Identification Fact Sheets on this site more information on specific bird issues.
