Preventing mice problem


Have you thought about using a stainless steel based product like this one? A friend suggested it to me and I removed the mice from my house

We had mice when I was younger. We also caught bull snakes and kept them in a cage. The snakes always got out, or my brother and I claimed. Then we had no mice. Another benefit, the younger brothers and sisters stayed out of our room. Somehow, they thought snakes ate small children.

Now I wonder why?

Do what I did: buy a can of Great Stuff, and spray your gaps and holes. Come back 2 hours later and you'll find the rodent eradicator:

Preventing mice problem


I've used an electric rodent repeller with good success (I bought a big one that covers the entire home) . . . I *do* still have mice - but they stay in the attic and I've yet to worry about them being out of the actual house.

Cats are still the best protection. If you can borrow a neighbor's for a few hours that will do the trick. Get their scent around the area to scare away the mice and then let the cat do his thing.

My cat stays in the basement at night
He didn't chase off the mice or catch a single one
He has caught them outside...but never inside
