Is there anything you can put around your house outside to prevent mice in a old home?

Any mouse deterrant product would only be a temporary fix and would have to be reapplied. You say you have an old house so there must be many places mice can enter. All openings no matter how small must be sealed from the outside. Especially around any pipes that enter the house and areas under the siding. No easy fix in an old house.

In my opinion nothing works better than a female cat.

Sulfur. It has to be re-done after it rains. (Try a farm and ranch feed type store to obtain it.) If you have outdoor pets or small children you might want to refrain from using it. Of course, you need to seal all holes where mice get in.

I just posted this last week, but I found it on google. A poster says that mixing baking soda with a cake mix, then sprinkling it around the entrances works.

They can't burp, so they eat then go back and um...well...expire in a non-gross way. Hope that helps.

I had the same problem as I live in a new modular home. What I did was to take" steel woodL" and put it around all my water pipes inside my house or any where they already had made an entrance. I have hadn't had anymore problem's with mice. A box of steel wool goes a long and is not that expensive.

I'm voting for a cat or two. And my wanton killer is a male. It just depends on the cat's temperment and skill!
