Tried many ways to kill mice under our mobile home that get up into our walls. Then read that when setting snap traps one should attach bait (I use a pecan nut with the flat bottoms) and attach it to trap with a glue gun. (Cheap from craft store). Did this and found 6 out of 7 traps with dead mice in them within a couple days. I think that they have to work harder at sneaking the bait out this way and that’s why this works so well. Best results yet. Poison did nothing. Good luck.

I have tried many methods such as poison, ordinary traps and using cats and none worked in the long run. The mic found a way to avoid the poison and traps.
A friend introduced me to electric traps and they seem to be working. I have killed more mice in a span of a week. Hoping to eliminate them completely. Here is a list of my favorite electric mouse traps bit.ly/2hR9Abp

What if your problem is not mice trying to get in but cats that BRING them in?

There is a product, No Mouse in the House, that delivers the peppermint oil scent continuously for six months. It uses a reservoir and wicking system and uses 100% pure peppermint oil. Solves the drying out problem and the units are pretty cool looking, too.

I have 2 cats that hunt and catch mice constantly. Fortunately, unless the cats bring me a present still alive, I don't have any in the house. I have been brought several varieties, field mice, shrews, deer mice, voles, gophers and some cute little tiny ones with huge ears and big Bambi eyes......In the barn tack room, the cats can't get in there, I use D-Con and traps. I really hate mice, especially when they run across your feet or over you hand when you reach in a feed bin.

The peppermint does not attract ants. It isn't sweet. I have put it around the house, only deters mice til it dries. My minature pinschers have caught one each, and a chihuahua 1. But certainly wasn't enough. Used to have a cat that would catch one then take it to the bathtub and bat it around til it died. The fill holes really helps, but if your house is as old as mine, you never know.

If you have problems with mice or rats chewing up wiring in your car or else where, I've heard that tying bounce dryer sheets in areas deters them and they leave your wiring alone.

I tried the peppermint oil cotton balls... Put them in a drawer with sentimental t shirts. That was the only drawer the mice went to in the dresser. Chewed up shirts... That's what I have.

I just buy rat poison cubes and throw them.under the shed. No other domestic critter can get to them. Might not be the "natural" way, but it is for us!
I have 2 cat. The only time I get mice in the house is when one of them very generously brings them home, live. My hubby and I spend hours catching them, much to the cats' entertainment.

I bought the plug in things and haven't seen a mouse or any sign of them in 5 years! They really work!

Rosie ... sorry I disagree. Never, would I use the glue traps, but mice are a health threat and a huge pest!! Releasing mice outside alive just allows them to re-enter your home

My favorite comment here is the "My dogs kill the mice without injuring them". hahahahhaahahahahahahaa!
Rosie, if you live with a ton of mice and find mice poops in everything, you would feel differently.

I use plaster of paris with bird seed and a little bacon grease mixed in it so they will eat it and when they go to water their stomachs set up and they die. It doesn't hurt dogs if they die in the back yard. It is good to use in the chicken coop too that is you have to put it where the chickens can't get into it.

We use magic tree car air fresheners, mice hate the smell. Started putting them under car bonnet after expensive repairs from pesky mice chewing pipes and wires. Now use them in the kitchen where they come in behind the boiler.

as far as using the decon traps they do not die in your walls they eat it then leave in search for water and never come back.I used this method when I had them in my attic with blown insulation and it worked like a charm!

Mice come into homes through access. If you have never had mice before, then something has moved, shifted, or broken down and allowed them entrace.
Mice like chocolate and peanut butter and if you put this into a tall bucket, trash bin, they will get in & won't be able to get out. Then take the bucket to a farm field or wooded area away from your home.

We have mice in our home. We have 2 pit/lab mixes that make GREAT mouse catchers. They kill them without injuring them or making the mouse bleed all over. We have the traps around with Frittos (they seem to like those). If you have guinea pigs (or other rodents in your home)...i recommend NOT getting the one that makes noise because it actually puts them under stress.

I enjoy killing rodents and recording their death

I guess we have smarter mice in Canada. They avoided the traps after an astonishingly short time. We found warfarin got rid of the mice already in the house and steel wool in the brick and soffit ventilation holes kept them out. Replace as it rusts. When we first moved to the country we used humane traps and changed to kill traps as we got tired of the pests. It's true: familiarity breeds contempt.
