It’s pretty easy to agree on this thing - unwanted rodents in the house is a huge problem. And we don’t want it. But how do we keep them away?
First, of course, is to get rid of your current tenants. There are a number of ways to get rid of mice. You can set up humane traps and use peanut butter instead of cheese. I’m a little surprised too, but it turns out, mice really love peanut butter more than they do cheese. You can also opt to take the natural way and use peppermint oil, or hot peppers to drive them away. If you can’t handle the situation, maybe call for professional help on this one.
Once your tenants are gone, clean everything! Mice are breeders of disease-causing bacteria. Their tracks and trails are pretty easy to find, but it’s still better to clean everything, don’t you think?
Now that your surroundings are clean, the next thing you need to do is seal your home. Patch and cover all holes in the walls past tenants have created. It is also always a good decision to seal even the smallest of cracks in any case they get through there. They are tiny. Aside from walls and corners of the house, you should also find a way to seal utilities and pipes outside of the house. Try using a screen, and try to keep crawl spaces dry.
Another option is to find a furry friend that could help you guard your home. Dogs and cats have a very sensitive sense of smell and can detect mice odor. It also helps that they have a natural hunting instinct. Of course, having a new friend won’t hurt too.
