You can get rid of mice if you trap them faster than they breed. It doesnt matter how you kill mice. They will always come back and cause problems if you dont take care of the primary and secondary reasions you have the mice. So lets get into that first, and then talk about the mice you have presently. Dealing with them will be easy, and they arent going anywhere.
Mice wont get close enough to your house if they are scared to make the trip. The world is a big place to a little mouse, and long grass makes it a nice wat to get there because the hawks and owls and cats cant see him. Hes under the grass and has made a safe little tunnel to get to your home. He will bring his friends too, causing a mouse infestation if you dont get it cut nice and short.
Mice wont want to live in your house if you keep it clean. That means no junk piled up in any rooms for them to hide, especially the basement. And keep your garbage in a garbage can with a lid. The smell of pop cans, beer cans and rotting garbage will draw all kinds of pests.
Mice get inside your house by way of a hole as small as a dime. You need to look all over the lower edges of your home and plug them with copper wool, use copper because it wont rust. then caulk over it so it wont fall out. Pay attention to the corners.
And be sure you move any wood piles or boats away from the house. It gives the mice somewhere to hide while they work on getting inside. Take away the mouses comfort zone and he wont be there.
Now we can go about the job of getting rid of mice. The ones you have inside will breed fast, so in an average house, get about 30 snap traps of your choise. They are all the same to me, and should be baited with peanut butter or jelly. No kidding they like it too! Set the traps against the walls in all rooms with mice, set behind water heaters, and washers. They like the warmth. Check these traps daily for a week, you should have got them all by then.
On the outside perimiter of the property you can put boxes with holes in them and put DECON mouse poision inside for any new comers. Dont use mouse poision inside the home, you dont want dead mice inside walls at all. They will stink badly.
