“You’re going to want to start by figuring out if you have a family of mice living in your house, or if you just have one mouse that happened to get lost and wander inside. Once you’ve figured out if you have a lone house mouse or an infestation, you’re going to want to figure out how you want to get rid of it.”
Mice: A Big Problem in a Pint-Sized Package
You see a shadow move from out of the corner of your eye. Then, you start noticing droppings along your baseboards, in the pantry, and maybe even on the kitchen countertops. You might as well face it – you have mice. Once you get over the “yuck” factor, there are some simple, no-nonsense steps you can take to get rid of them.
Use Mice Behavior Against Them
Mice are creatures of habit – they like to take the same path to and from their nests. They’re also very curious, so they’ll check out any new thing along the way. Those two behaviors will help you control your mice problem. Put your traps or bait stations in several places where you see droppings. If you don’t catch a mouse within 2 days, move the trap or bait station to another spot.
