How to Get Rid of Mice

Mice may look cute, but they are a huge nuisance to have around your Salem and Portland, OR home. Mice can contaminate food and even spread disease. Plus, they seem to be Houdini’s in finding ways to get into your house.

Mice are nocturnal, so you may not see the animal often. However, if you find sign like their droppings, then you likely have a mouse problem. Follow the six tips for getting rid of mice in this article, and you will never have to worry about these annoying and dangerous pests again.

Six tips for getting rid of mice

No one wants mice in their Salem or Portland home. If you have a mice infestation, you will want to try out some of these tricks for getting rid of mice.

  1. Store your food in sealable containers. Mice love our food, and easily accessible food is their favorite. If you have cereals, granola bars, chips, etc. in your kitchen and pantry, then you may want to consider using plastic. Plastic containers are hard for mice to get into, and so they will keep mice from contaminating your food and make your home less attractive. It’s a win-win.
  2. Use traps. There are a variety of mouse traps available. You should find the most humane way to kill the mice as possible, so we’d recommend staying away from the traditional glue traps. But otherwise, find a trap that works for your home and situation, and you will significantly reduce your mouse population.
  3. Keep your Portland and Salem home as clean as possible. This tip is related to our number one way to get rid of mice. The cleaner your home, the harder it will be for mice to find food, water, and hiding places. Cleaning your home to prevent mice involves picking up piles of clothes and laundry, vacuuming regularly, and doing the dish/putting away food.
  4. Seal up all entrances and exits you can find. Mice are geniuses at finding ways into your home. But, because they are a rodent, they are larger than many insect pests. This means that you can likely find many of their entrances and exits to your home. You may also want to follow their droppings to their nesting site. Sealing up the accessible areas means that mice can’t find a way into your home, which stops your mouse problem.
  5. Get a pet. Cats are most often linked to mouse catching. However, some dogs will do this as well. If you want a mousing dog, you should do some research to find a breed made for hunting. Their prey drive will kick in without a problem, and your home will become much less interesting to mice.
  6. Your best bet for getting the mice out of your Salem and Portland home is to hire a mouse removal specialist. Professionals know how to find the hidden areas of entry used by mice.
