rodent disposal

Asked May 21, 2018, 11:21 AM EDT

I'm wondering about disposing of trapped rodents (dead or alive). I need to do some rodent control on my property, but don't want to hire a service. Was thinking about setting traps, but not sure what to do with them once I've trapped them. I'm not adverse to more humane methods, but not sure what I can do with them once trapped either dead or alive. An Internet search didn't bring up much for this situation - mostly services I could hire. Hoping you can help with some information. Thanks,

Please read through our Nuisance Wildlife publication here: https://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG90%20De...
It has information about control options, as well as the number for a free information service from the Department of Natural Resources about trapping, release etc.
