We all hate having mice in our homes. Especially at night when you can actually hear them in the walls, maybe even the floors, or chewing their way through just about anything. Farm houses especially have mice problems, but just about anyone can have a really bad mouse problem. How can you combat them? Well this is going to be the topic of discussion in this article today.
The first step that you can take is to make sure you have a clean house, especially by not leaving food out. Leaving food out can attract mice who can smell from a great distance away. By taking away their source of food, that will reduce the chances of mice coming in the first place. However, if they are still coming, the next thing to do is to set up multiple traps. Many people will set up between 4 to 10 mouse traps, each with a small piece of peanut butter on the trigger. This will increase the chances of you getting a couple mice at least in a few days. That way, it can greatly reduce the population, and discourage mice from coming again.
Keeping these few things in mind will help your family and your house to stay clean and mouse free.
