It's been said twice in this thread, and a few times in the first thread, but I can't stress enough, DO NOT POISON the mice! They will crawl to an area, die, rot, smell and you'll never find them. It takes two to three weeks for the smell to go away.--- ask me how I know --- They will also "steal" the poison and place them in your shoes for you to find at a later date..... Like they're taunting you.--- ask me how I know --- You can place all the cats and snakes around your house to eat the ones that come in. That will help.I've got a half dozen electronic "emitters" and more glue traps than I can count, in and around my house. For the past several months, I've not seen a mouse in my house. I installed the electronic units in my house in August of 2016 and haven't seen a mouse since.The glue traps, on the other hand, have trapped an incredible amount of crickets and various other insects.So kind of a extra bonus, in my opinion. That's my recommendation, for what it's worth.
I have been unable to stop the spread of mice in my house!!!!I called in a pro company , he came , cleaned out a very messy troublesome cabinet. I was supposed to pay about $385 to start mice control, and first visit. He never charged me, said he trusts me, and he will call me in a day or two. He never called me back, I never paid for any services.He talked about sealing off areas where they are traveling , putting tube traps of poison around the house outside .I am at my wits end !!! I am still trapping a few, but they are running around our kitchen and living and dining room!!Should I go with a private service or a big name exterminator?What should I be looking for as far daily, weekly, monthly service?How much investment am I looking at?How long to end our problem?Thanks !!
In my experience, the electronic/ultrasonic/emitter/devices don't work very well on mice, but stress out dogs.
No one has mentioned yet, but seal up all sources of food. Get a bunch of extra rubber totes if you have to and put all your food into them. Only open them to take food out, and seal when not in use. Be careful when you eat or where you prep meals and don't leave crumbs or anything anywhere. Instead of one big garbage in the kitchen, take out smaller bags daily. Get rid of sources of food for the mice and they will stop coming in searching for it.
Along those lines and something that people always forget about, but remove all sources of water as well. Fix the drippy faucets, don't leave water splashed along countertops in the bathroom and kitchen, beware of condensation from toilets, etc.Sealing up the house is only half the battle. You have to get rid of all the stuff that the mice are looking for.
Wow, that is a creepy experience, Bob.Question about the electronic repellers. Do you have pets? If so, do the repellers bother them?
