Get Rid Of Mice – Before They Start Breeding
Having mice in your home is not only a nuisance, but also a serious health hazard to you, your family and your pets. Mice carry and spread diseases and can also cause significant property damage.
But the worst thing about mice is they breed so quickly. Before you know it, your property could become a refuge for an entire nest of disgusting rodents!
So don’t start eradicating your mouse infestation problem without first identify where they are nesting. You will often be able to uncover this by looking for mouse tracks, piles of droppings, gnawing damage – and holes in walls, floors, skirting boards and furniture that were not there before.
5 Easy Ways to Get Rid Of Mice
Once you have a good idea where the mice are nesting you could try one or all of these options to get rid of them:
1. Mousetraps – This is probably the most common method of controlling mice in your home. It’s a good, cheap, and relatively effective solution, provided you have identified where the mice are nesting and you don’t mind the clean up. If you don’t want to kill them, you could always use live traps and simply remove the mice from your property unharmed. Whichever option you go for, just remember to place at least six traps at each nesting area to make sure you get all of them.
2. Baits & poisons – Using baits and poisons is a good option if you are having trouble identifying where the mice are nesting. There are, however, important precautions to take to make sure you use poisons safely. Use sealed bait stations and place them in areas you know mice are likely to move through – this will also help keep poisons away from children. You should also only use the bait stations indoors to keep them away from pets and wildlife.
3. Natural methods – If you don’t like the idea of poison or trapping, there are a few natural, non-lethal alternatives. Mothballs, for example, are said to get rid of mice 65% of the time. Mice don’t like strong smells, so placing mothballs close to their nests will go a long way to encouraging them to leave peacefully. Just be careful with this method as mothballs are toxic and can harm children and pets if eaten. You could also try something similar by using peppermint oil on cotton balls placed close to the nest, although you need to take the same precautions with children and pets as you would do with mothballs.
4. Exclusion – One of the best ways to get rid of mice is to prevent them from getting into your home in the first place, but you can use exclusion methods to send a clear message your home is not a haven for vermin. This method is best used in combination with either trapping or baiting, but it can be effective in driving mice out of your home. Stopping up any holes with steel wool or wire mesh will do the trick and prevent mice from nesting in your home.
5. Hire a professional – If you have a serious mouse infestation the methods above will only take you so far. Cleaning out an entire nest and exterminating the mice can be a rather unpleasant job. So if you suspect your home might have become a haven for rodents, you should call out the professionals as soon as possible.
