How to Get Rid of Mice, Part 2

in Health & Safety on by

Mice don’t make the best roommates. Unlike bigger roommates, though, they tend not to take hints that it’s time to move along. If you need to get a mouse out of your apartment, you may have to do more than mention that it’s time to move along.

If you do have a mouse problem, the time to act is now. Mice reproduce anywhere between five and ten times in a year, with five or six new mice in each litter. It doesn’t take any time at all for two mice to turn into a big problem.

Borrowing a Cat
Cats are the time-honored solution to a mouse problem: you borrow one from your friend, leave him in your apartment and let nature take its course. It’s not the best plan, but there are a few drawbacks you should consider beforehand. First, not all cats are mousers. If your friend can’t swear that his cat has ever encountered a mouse — and came out on top — you might be better off with a trap. Bringing a cat into an unfamiliar area can have a few problems, especially if the cat feels a need to mark its territory (although plenty of people swear by the smell of cat urine as a way to drive mice away).

Scenting Your Apartment
Plenty of homeowners say that certain smells, like peppermint oil or ammonia, will drive away mice. At best, however, putting down any kind of scent is a temporary solution. The strength of a smell strong enough to drive away a mouse is enough to get rid of an apartment’s human tenants as well. As soon as the smell clears out, mice can come back. You will have more luck putting down a scent barrier around your building to keep mice out in the first place (or after you’ve driven them out and want to keep them out). Put down a heavy dose of fox urine or another scent right around the foundation of the building, and refresh it fairly regularly.

Setting Traps
The mousetrap is a foolproof, though the least fun, method for pest control. There are a wide variety available, from the Havahart traps, guaranteed to leave your catches alive, to spring-loaded and glue traps that kill mice. It’s up to you to make sure that your trap is truly effective, though, and the matter comes down to bait. Peanut butter works well on larger critters, but mice need so little peanut butter to survive that they can just grab and go. Bait like popcorn is a good choice — it’s small enough that the mouse needs the whole thing to survive.

    The problem is finding the source of entry.There is a hole or holes in your dweling. Locate the holes and seal them up with steel wool. The smallest hole needs to be sealed as wel. A mice can get through a hole the size of a key hole.

    My upstairs neighbor used that stuff. Unfortunately the mouse died in the ducting at my level in the apartment block. There was a soapy ammonia smell in that area for six weeks, along with a whole load of other critters from the insect world which feasted on the corpse.

    If you want to remove a mouse, make sure you know where the body is going to be (alive or dead). Otherwise you or somebody else is going to have to live with the smell for a couple of months.

    sheets works also – they don’t like the smell and it

    First of all you need to find out how they’re getting in. Once you see that then you should seal up all the holes in your apartment. Under the sinks bathroom cabinets and us steel wool to stop their entry way. Next thing to do is to make sure you leave nothing out for them to eat. Then start putting traps all over the place. You might want to set about 5 -7 traps and leave the house for a few days. When you return yous should have a mouse on each trap. If you have more do the same thing all over again but ake sure they have no entry way into your house. Again make sure everything is clean always. They can survive off of a small amount of food and also make sure you close the toilet seat every night and when you’re not home. Use the old time traps they work better. Following what I said you will get rid of this infestation. Glue traps are a joke. Also peanut butter is their favorite so use that on the trap.

    i have a similar problem. while mine are not in the cabinets they are in my couch, my daughters room and the kitchen. i have the green blocks and they are untoched. i have the snap traps with peanut butter and they are untoched. i have the electronic traps and those have been untouched. i think that the only other option is to get a cat. i heard that even if the cat doesn’t kill the mouse right away the smell of a cat will.

    My cat brought me a mouse from the kitchen. I am anal retentively clean so I was completely appalled by this. Instead of killing it she put it down to play with it and it ran back into the kitchen. I went and bought d-con traps and used peanut butter to try to catch it over the weekend. I ended up calling an exterminator on Monday after having nothing in the traps. The exterminator told me the secret to his success: strawberry twizzlers as bate. Sure enough he set a trap with the twizzler and caught it within an hour. So my advice is catch mice with strawberry twizzlers and make sure you bleach anything and everything the mouse could have touched once you catch it.

    My family managed a summer rental house for a few years, open in the summer, closed up in winter. Mice would get in and eat ANYTHING. We found that mothballs in vulnerable spots and hidden corners were effective repellents. Yes, mothballs are toxic, so you want to be careful about where you use them. But they do work.
    That said, get a pair of kittens and the mice won’t be there for long. Also, you will have the benefit of cats.

    I am a property manager and have had a fair amount of experience with mice.

    First take care of it RIGHT AWAY. Mice will not go away on their own.

    Some things to try first: bait, mouse traps and glue traps. If you use peanut butter you may find it attracts ants. DO NOT use moth balls – they are not healthy for humans to inhale.

    Mice prefer human food rather than bait. Don’t leave food out. Keep kitchen area CLEAN – wash dishes and pots and pans right away; take garbage out every day; keep cereal, crackers & fruit in sealed containers. However I have seen mice in apartments that were spotless.

    Don’t get a cat just to get rid of mice – it never worked in any of the buildings I managed. Also they may be attracted to the cat food.

    You can seal up any holes you think they may be using to get in; but keep in mind that a mouse can get through an opening 1/2 inch high – their skeletal systems are different than ours. This means they can come in through heating ducts, under the front or back door or a gap in the floor molding in a closet that you haven’t even seen.

    Get your landlord to get a professional exterminator if you don’t see improvement in one month – an exterminator will use stronger stuff. It may take several months to get rid of them.

    There are mice in my apartment, they are coming thru a hole in the back of the cabnents. I told the landlord and she basically said so what get some traps. I got some traps but they are not working. I found mice poop in my silverware holder!Also there is this mold that all of the sudden has appearned in the cornors of the appartment. I want out!but my lease goes till Feb. Also we have been out of hot water for three days. She tried to tell me that it was the city’s fault and they would come out and turn it back in two days. Then she changed her story to it’s the neighbors fault, he didn’t pay the bill and our wires are crossed. Then finally she said they would be out the next day to put in a new hot water heater. I really don’t think that is leagle and I want out of me lease. Anyone know if I can break my lease without having to pay the rest of the rent and how to do it? Thanks SO much!

In my kitchen I have just about given it to them, It devastates me and my husband hates them. I need help they are driving me crazy. I do put out glue traps and they do catch them this is the sickening part sometimes I check the traps there are 2 on the same trap.

    Hi check out the Landlord/tenant agreement online. Know that thing inside and out!!! As soon as you have all the knowledge you need, confront her and let her know that you do have rights. This sounds a lot like the situation I once had with a landlord and as soon as I started throwing some of that in his face I moved out and never heard from him again!! Good Luck!!!!!

    To the woman who wants to sleep in her car to escape them:
    THEY CAN GET IN THERE TOO! I brought in groceries from the car in the garage, but a bag of Chips Ahoy fell out of one of the bags. I went back out a short time later and there were chew holes in the bag of cookies! That’s how we knew we had mice. I was still hoping that they were only in the garage but that was a fool’s dream. Apparently, in addition to human food, they go wild over seeds. That is how we first got them. We’d had a huge bag of grass seeds that attracted them. They were having a field day with those seeds!
    We called Orkin and the guy put down glue traps with Easy Cheese, the squeeze cheese in an aerosal can. It worked to catch two mice right away. He also put down bait and several spring traps. We had to sign a contract for him to come back every month for a year. He’d just walk around check the traps and put down more bait. They are now back (18 months later) or they never left. My husband and I could not seal off the garage like the exterminator suggested because of the type of garage door we have. Is there a mouse-proof garage door? According to him, homes with attached garages are more prone to get mice.
    I hate them. They startle me. I can not feel at ease because I have no idea where they have been. well we do know if one place…in the walls chewing the cloth covered wires of our heating system. There was a short that screwed up the heat timers. We don’t know yet how much it will be to fix. It was $200 bucks just to have the guy coe out and say what the problem was.
    I hate them. :(

    Does anybody know how I could seal off the hole under the heating vent in an apartment. I told the landlord before that in my past experience w/ mice in an apartment they were coming in under the heating vent the maintenence came and sealed off the wholes w/ something. I was told by landlord they can’t seal off anything under the heating vent because it would start a fire. I don’t think it is true because it was done before I just don’t what it’s called if anybody knows please let me know. if anybody knows please send me an email at peachezsw@gmail.com Thanks,

    Don’t put out poison without a trap! I used to and found one dead under my sofa! The will drop dead wherever and you wont find them…until!

    Its been a while since I found any, kept watching traps, but today in the basement found one in a trap. Had one a couple of years ago in my dishwasher, it stunk! got fried in the electrics. Just replaced my dishwasher and sealed all the area with caulking before putting in the dishwasher.

    Seal all pipes under all sinks. Go into the basement and seal all openings with caulking I would caulk around all baseboards or make sure you have quarter round on the baseboards.

    No FOOD anywhere or water keep sealing and cleaning and use traps until the traps are empty. In the spring and summer go outside and seal up every little CRACK!

    So now I need to deal with the “dead mouse” which make me want to puke.

    This summer I will be emptying everything out and sealing everything in the basement, Thats where they get in. I havent been deligent but now I will!

    If you are in an apartment….go get
    a caulking gun or tubes of caulking and seal all holes in cabinets, Around all pipes, put steel wool in places you can can’t seal like over heating ducts and around baseboard heaters. Caulk all windows and buy and attach door sweeps to the inside of your door so if other people have them they cant get in.

    Put out traps after you have done all this, (you probably still have them hiding!) and keep doing this till they are empty….if it doesnt stop…you have missed a CRACK…not a hole…A CRACK! Pull out
    all your appliances there might be a hole in the walls behind the appliance!

    Also dont forget to seal the balcony door.

    Wash all areas, and keep your kitchen (especially) and your place clean…

    Good luck! by the way if they are running over you and are in all rooms, you are INFESTED! get the hell out and get an exterminator…then start at the beginning!

    A suggestion to seal the hole under the heating vent is steel wool. The steel wool can be stuffed in various irregular holes, is not flammable, and can be obtained from your local hardware stoor/farm store. The steel wool is too rough for a mouse to try to get around apparently. Good luck!

    I opened my pantry cover and a mouse was sitting there as pretty as you please looking right back at me, and I ever so slowly closed it. I went to check on my computer in the basement and looked down, there was one right under my chair apparently chewing on the carpet. My son-in-law screamed last night because he opened the bathroom drawer to grab his toothpaste and one was in there. I had my sister over yesterday and she left 5 minutes later because she said she saw one run from the stove to the area under my electric fireplace.

    As of last night I set 8 traps and moved out of my house into my sister’s. I checked this morning and already 2 have been caught. I’m going to take everyone’s advice and place steel wool in all the holes I can find but regarding the vents in the floor, can I put the wool under it as I don’t want company to see a clump of wool sitting on top of it out in the open? Also can they really get in through LIGHT fixtures? I’ll put steel wool around all the pipes and clean out my house and apply caulking and wool but I need more suggestions on where the holes might be. Should I move my washing machine, stove, fridge and dryer and look behind them? Can I put steel wool around those holes and pipes?

    HELP! I need more advice!

    To start the person in a lease ~ all landloards must make and keep rental livable. Yes you can walk away before lease ends. If you know where the hole is place steel wool in it ~ mice will not chew on it.

    All other that are trying to rid their home of mice.

    Mice hate the smell and taste of cayenne pepper, peppermint, ammonia, and cloves. Lightly soak some cotton balls in oils from one or more of these foods and leave the cotton balls in places where you’ve had problems with mice. Another option is to make cheesecloth sachets from dry cayenne, mint, and whole cloves and leave them in places where mice are, such as under beds and corners.

    In addaition these work well.

    1) Fox Urine –
    Fox Urine is a great way to repel mice because they are a natural predator to mice. If you don’t have a cat, and don’t want one, you can buy products that contain fox urine. These products can be sprinkled around your home to eliminate mice.
    2) Peppermint -
    Peppermint is a great natural way to deter mice. Placing a few peppermint plants around the foundation of your home can help repel mice. NOTE : MUST BE PEPPERMINT OIL NOT FAVORING.
    Peppermint oil is $20 at GNC. Instead, buy it at iherb for $10, Now Foods Peppermint Oil, 4 oz. Use code HIT028 to get $5 off, or get it at any health food store.

    3) Bay leaves-
    Bay leaves are also effective because they can be sprinkled in your kitchen and around your pantry. Mice can’t stand it.

    4) Hot pepper –
    Mix one tablespoon of Tabasco and a quarter cup of soap detergent to one gallon of water, and you will have a great repellant spray that can be used in and around any area that you’re having mice.

    5) Mint-
    Mice have a natural aversion to mint, and will generally avoid it. Plant it around the exterior of your house as a deterrent as well as potting some around your home. Not only will they keep mice away, but they’ll freshen the air as well. Ahhh. Spearmint seeds can be had in garden centers or ordered online.

    6)Moth Balls – USE CAUTION !!
    Scatter moth balls in front of your front door and garage door. They’re a great mouse repellant. But don’t put them indoors—they’re highly toxic. SNAKE IS A GOOD DETERANT ~ AROUND FOUNDATION.

    IF THIS DOESN’T WORK THEN YOU MUST TURN THE KILLING LITTLE DEVELS .

    GOOD LUCK

    I had a mouse problem for almost 2 months. I tried D-Con traps with cheese in it, also put peanut butter in it and the mouse never enter into the chamber.
    Had sticky glue traps and the mouse went around it.
    What worked for me was a suggestion from a apt tenant. I took 2 paper plates and trimmed
    around the edges, all the way to the base. I then put 3 gummy bears & 3 pieces of peanut butter from Reese’s peanut butter cup(scraped chocolate off) and laced all of these with d-con rat pellets (poison). Little green pellets you buy in a box for $3.00. About a few hours later, the mouse ingested the food and slowly died. I left my apt for 30 minutes as I couldn’t watch this critter die in front of my eyes. Bill & I left the mouse a buffet of food as he likes to say and believe me, it worked. No more mice, I am hoping for now….

    I have tried many different things to try and get rid of the mice in my apartment. They seem to be in the kitchen but have also found mouse poop in my shoes in the closet.

    I started with the old fashioned snap traps with peanut butter on them and that seemed to work the best (we caught 11 like that).

    When we told our landlord he gave us poison and they love it! but I haven’t seen much of an improvement in the number of mice… if anything I see them more running around the apartment.

    Last night I tried the sticky traps and placed them where I have seen the mice before (beside the fridge) and we caught one!!! It was the saddest thing I had ever seen, and I quickly picked up the other traps I put out. I think this method is good if you do not have to be there when the mouse is still alive!!!

    I am going back to the old snap trap and I have read that Honey and Twizzlers work well, I am also going to put bounce sheet in the storage cupboard!!

    Wish me luck!

    The best thing I found was Irish Spring soap. We were having a problem with mice in our trailer. Every time we went there for the weekend I had to clean out the drawers because of mouse pop. It was disgusting. Someone told me about the soap has to be the green version. We cut one bar up in 1/2 inch pieces and put in the vents and the drawers they were going in and they never came back. The only problem is the smell can be overwhelming but it’s better than mouse pop.

    I tried electrical zappers, sonar and removing all the food. The thing that worked for me was glue traps but you MUST place enough of them in the path you know the mice are traveling. In the dark mice have bad vision and if they dont expect the trap they step in it. Getht the rat size glue traps for the mouse and strategically place them throughout the pathway you know he is taking. I bought TomKat with eugnol. I used 10 of them in the kitchen itself. Caught two within 6 hours. I had already removed the food days prior but they kept coming and then I caught two travelin on their same pathway to the stove. I had to be listening through each night for them to get trapped, then I got up, put on my Nikes, and picked up the glue traps with the mouse dangling (hey I am the superior specie!) and girded my brain up and put them n a double plastic bag and drove in the nite four miles away and dumped the plastic bag in a garbage. I dont care if they die because frankly some poor baby or child could die from their diseases. Glue traps work but you need enough of them. Tom Kat brand does not require bait because they are scented with something that attracts them. This is day two and so far no more mice. We sahll see but my traps are out and so is my peppermint oil and sonar plugs blasting. Wish me luck.

    To all the individuals above and their suggestions: don’t delude yourselves, you got them, period.
    You may catch or kill one or two but there are dozen more and if they chose to stay in your your houses or apartments nothing will drive them away.

    We put the sticky mouse trap from one end to the other in our hallway at night (which connects to living, bed, and bathrooms) and were able go catch 4. Will try again tonight. the reusable ones did not work for us or even the sticky ones while having against the wall. Also we didnt spend much since we bouvht a 4 pack at the 99 cent onlh store. My DH said they were cheap & that we should get some better ones because he didnt think they would stick but i guess he was wrong. So dont go spend too much….

    So far as I can tell, I’ve got one that won’t leave the inside of the wall by my headboard, but the damn thing won’t stop chewing and gnawing at the walls. How do I get the little bastard if he never leaves the walls? He never comes out to the traps I’ve set up and I’m a little weary of the fox urine thing because I don’t want my apartment to stink just so I don’t have any mice.
