You can put out traps, you can put out poison bait that mice will eat, go back to their nest and die. You could hire an exterminator. But to keep mice out of the house you really need to find the opening that they use and seal it. They can get in through the smallest of openings. (07/21/2009)

How to Keep Mice Out?

Last year we had mice in our camper, we had to clean and disinfect everything. I read a tip that they didn't like dryer sheets (I just bought the cheap ones at the dollar store). I put them everywhere, in the closet, on top of the stove elements, in the cupboards, and there was no sign of any mice in the spring in the camper. Try it it works. (07/23/2009)

For all the holes where they come in, I stuff with S.O.S. or Brillo pads, the kind with the soap in them. Stuff it in tight and they will not chew it, even the 99cent store ones work. (07/24/2009)

How to Keep Mice Out?

Since our cat died a few years ago, mice started moving in to our house. We tried everything, nothing worked, moth balls, special tea bags, fabric softener, soap, you name them, we tried. We trapped all the mice, then a day or two later, there were more in our house again.

One day I heard it on the radio that the farmers out in Alberta, Canada, are using electronic pest chasers. These are non-toxic ultrasonic rodent repellents, output 105dB, to keep mice and rats out of their grain storage. We rushed off to the hardware store and bought a few packages (you can get individual unit or a package of two or three units). Our neighbour had mice inside her walls and on her ceilings between floors, she bought some pest chasers, too, they worked, the mice went away. Since then we (all of us) have been rodent free in our houses. It had been at least 5 years now.

You have to make sure to buy enough units of pest chasers to cover the size of each floor. The sound wave won't bother your cats and dogs, however, if you have pet rodents, like hamsters and gerbils, they won't like it.
