What is the best way to kill mice in the house? Well, the first thing I'll say is that you'll never permanently solve a mouse problem in a house until you correctly tackle the root cause - the fact that your house has holes in it that mice are using to get inside! Solve that problem, and shazam, the mice are gone for good, and you won't have to worry about killing them. Sealing a building properly takes experience, as does effective trapping of ALL the mice, so if you need to hire a pro and get PERMANENT mouse removal in your town,
Okay, the first and most important thing I'll say: NEVER EVER USE POISON TO KILL MICE. Here's why. First, poison will only kill about half the mice. The others won't touch it, won't find it, or won't eat enough to die. Second, the mice that do die will die in the house, in the attic and walls, and rot and STINK. Yes, a tiny mouse creates a huge odor problem. Third, poison is a temporary fix. New mice will just keep coming and coming. Poison is a total waste of time. Like I said, first you've got to seal the entry holes. But after that, the good news - trapping mice is really easy!
|How To Kill Mice: First, seal the holes leading into the house. Next, look all through the home and attic to see where the mice
are living. Look for brown grease marks, chew marks, trails and little runways and tunnels in the insulation, and most of all, look for mouse droppings scattered
Now that you know where the mice run around, set snap traps there. The wooden snap traps are the best. Bait with any variety of baits - Slim Jims work great, chocolate, and I prefer peanut butter. Set the traps along edges of walls, with the trip pan facing the wall, so the mouse can trigger it from either direction.
I don't recommend glue boards. They are not as effective, and then you've got a live mouse stuck and suffering in glue - just dumb. There are better ways to kill mice, snap traps are really the best.
