Ridding Yourself Of A Mouse Problem

There is nothing like finding that you have an infestation of mice in your home. Most of the time mice come into the home when there is a food source, or when the weather is turning cold. These little rodents can be a big problem to a home. One of the biggest problems is they chew through insulation and wiring. However, the biggest cause for concern is that the fecal pellets of mice often have Hantavirus which is a virus that is deadly to humans. Here are a few different things that you can do that will help you prevent or kill a mouse infestation. 


One of the most important things that you can do with your home is keep it incredibly clean. The mice that come into your home will continually be looking for a new meal, and they will most likely raid your pantry and cupboards. To ensure that the mice do not have a free meal you should deep clean your home often. Be sure that there are not lose food crumbs anywhere in the home. Also when you clean you may want to consider using a citrus or a mint scented cleaner because mice hate these scents. 


A great way to rid yourself of mice is to trap the little rodents. Mice are curious in nature and will often investigate a trap even without bait. However setting a trap in a high traffic area is something that will increase your chances. To find a high traffic area look for fecal pellets or grease stains on floor boards. Once you find the area that the mice spend time, set the trap with simple bait like grain. Put the bait toward the middle of the room so the mouse is forced to set the trap off when it goes for the grain.
