When you begin understanding a mouse’s world these nuisance pests will astound you with their special set of skills allowing them to completely infiltrate and infest your home. Once you know the signs to look for only then do you have a fighting chance to get rid of mice from your home.
Mouse Poisons don’t do the job completely and here is why – mice reproduce too quickly and leave urine and pheromone trails so new mice show up shortly after they are gone. Mice population in your home is determined by amount of space available and food sources. As long as you have these you will have a never ending cycle.
This is because mice fit through spaces no wider than their nose or ¼ inch. They flatten out and pass through tiny spaces with ease.
What about repelling the mice with mothballs, ultrasonic sounds, flickering lights, different smells and odors, peppermint and drastic coyote urine? You may get a small success with these techniques but certainly will not solve the problem of mice in the walls. And if anything these devices will likely annoy you more than the mice. Your house mice know that leaving a safe wall space, basement or attic means a shortened life so they stay put.
