How do you deal with a Mice Problem?
Mice are troublesome creatures. They try to get into your house around the year. Why? It is because they get food and a cozy, warm temperature inside.
Not just they feed on the food available easily but also cause great damage to your property. They chew through the walls and boxes in the kitchen, cut computer cables, and electrical wiring, dig burrows, and spread droppings causing asthma and allergy as well.
Rats and mice should never be allowed to enter your house. Their droppings are the first signs of a mouse infestation. As soon as you see them, fasten your seatbelt, and start fighting against mice. You will need to put more effort than you think.
Are DIY hacks effective?
Well, you browse the Internet, and you will go crazy by reading weird remedies to get rid of mice. Some of them are effective up to some extent, but some are just nonsense.
Some remedies work initially, but mice are intelligent creatures. When they sense the risk, they will not get into the trap. Hence, remedies like peppermint sprays or cotton balls soaked in oil will not work.
Also, there is no evidence whether these remedies really work or not. Scientists say that mice are used to living with humans. Therefore, it is less possibility of them getting repelled by familiar smells.
What to do then? Well, as they say, ‘prevention is better than cure’, you should stop trying the best to stop their entry.
Here are some tips to do that.
Block their entry points
You need to search their entry points before putting traps. There is no point in locating them randomly. You can do two things-either place traps in the house or near their holes.
If you find it difficult, then call an expert pest-controlling company. There you will have experts who can determine exactly where to put the trap.
It is important to buy good-quality stuff. Cheap, substandard traps will not be effective. Store-bought traps are better.
Cut their food chain
Easy availability of food is the biggest reason mice enter the house. If you keep the food stored in airtight containers and tightly closed bins.
Never keep leftover food overnight, not even pet food. It will be a feast for mice.
