Home Remedies to Get Rid of MiceWhen you find yourself with a mouse problem the sooner you get a handle on it the better, because before you know a problem with a dozen or so mice can quickly turn into an invasion. Getting rid of mice using home remedies is a bit different approach than the traditional traps and poisons. Let's have a look at a few ideas.
Sprinkling bay leave in the kitchen cupboards and in the pantry has worked well for some in getting rid of mice.
Mice can enter through the tiniest of openings. Use steel wool to plug any small openings where you believe the mice may be gaining entry. Steel wool is difficult for the mice to gnaw their way through.
If you are having trouble determining where these pesky pests are getting into your home sprinkle flour around suspect areas and on the floor against the walls.
When it comes to getting rid of mice onions can be your best friends since mice find the smell of onions offensive.
Like onion mice do not like the smell of ammonia. Place a small bowl of ammonia in the areas you are having problems with the mice. The biggest drawback is that ammonia is also offensive to most humans. However, if you are getting rid of mice in a shop or shed this could work.
10. Peanut Butter
Yet another strategy in getting rid of mice is to lure them into the trap you've laid and peanut butter is an excellent bait. They can't steal the peanut butter it before the trap goes off.
