6 Tips for Getting Rid of Mice

  • Get Rid of Entry Points: Mice have an incredible ability to squeeze into even the tiniest of spaces, but a good rule of thumb is if you can fit a pen into a crack or crevice, seal it up. 
  • Use a Natural Repellent: If you are looking for a natural way to repel mice from your home, check out these 7 methods put together by our technicians.
  • Leverage Mouse Traps: You can either go to the traditional mouse trap route, or you can try a more humane approach by using a block and bottle.

  • Get a Cat: More of a dog person? We feel you, but cats are great at helping keep mice at bay. Just prepare yours for getting both the alive and dead kinds. 
  • Practice Proper Sanitation: Mice are tiny creatures and can survive on just 4 grams of food per day. That means any crumbs you leave laying around are a full meal to them. Make sure to follow these helpful tips for cutting out any things you may be doing to invite mice into your home.
