They can be destructive, with a penchant for chewing on electrical wiring, insulation and even food products. Mice also carry diseases and their droppings can contaminate food supplies.
Mice are attracted to places where there is an abundance of food and shelter. They prefer dark areas near the ground or along walls where they can easily find openings to enter buildings. Mice commonly enter homes through holes around foundations, cracks in walls, gaps around pipes and other points where utility lines enter the home. And the first thing you need to do is to seal all those place using a Musetteting med musebørste.
There are many ways to control mice in your home or business:
Eliminate food sources – Keep foodstuffs stored in tightly sealed containers. Clean up crumbs from countertops, floors and pet bowls regularly. Store bulk foods such as cereal on high shelves out of reach of pests and small children alike!
Remove debris – Remove any debris piles inside or outside the building that could provide shelter for mice or other pests like cockroaches and rats.
Place mouse traps – Locate mouse traps near cabinets where you’ve seen them entering your home (along baseboards), in cupboards/closets where they’re hiding during the day (in corners/crevices), under appliances
Here are a few traps that you can use to catch mice in your home.
Baited Snap Traps
The most common method of catching mice is using baited snap traps. You can find these at most hardware stores and they come in many varieties. To use them, simply place the trap on a flat surface like the floor or countertop near where you’ve seen signs of mouse activity (e.g., droppings). Then bait the trap with peanut butter or cheese and wait for it to snap shut! Make sure to check your traps regularly so that you can dispose of any mice humanely.
Glue boards are another popular way to trap mice because they’re easy to use and inexpensive compared to other types of traps; however, they don’t always work well in homes with pets or children who might get stuck on one accidentally! To use one, simply place it along an area where you’ve seen signs of mouse activity (e.g., droppings). The glue will hold onto the mouse until you come back
