It is common for mice to find their way into your home, but these rodents can carry disease and contaminate your home. You will want to take action at the first signs of an infestation. If you want to tackle getting rid of the mouse on your own, here are some techniques to try.
The key to using mouse traps is to put out more than you think you need and use a variety of different traps. It is easy to underestimate just how many mice you have in your house, so you will want to put out multiple traps. Some mice may be able to avoid traditional wood snap traps, so be sure to add glue traps and live traps so that you don’t get outsmarted.
Bait station packets are sealed and filled with edible pellets. The mice will be attracted to the bait and break through the packaging to eat the poisoned food. While this can be an effective approach, you will want to take precautions so that children and pets are kept safe.
Close off Entry Points
Prevention is also an important part of rodent control. Mice can squeeze through holes and cracks that are just a quarter of an inch. Take the time to inspect your home on a regular basis and seal off any cracks around the foundation, pipes, doors, windows, vents, and other vulnerable areas.

If you want the job done quickly and correctly without having to deal with traps and baits, it is time to call the professionals. The right pest control expert will be able to better understand the extent of your infestation and use professional-grade products and techniques to eradicate the mice.
