THE TOP 8 DIY WAYS TO GET RID OF MICE IN OKLAHOMA

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO REMOVE MICE FROM YOUR HOME? 

1. REMOVE ENTRY POINTS

Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel. So it’s important to check inside and outside your home for gaps or holes.

2. USE EFFECTIVE MOUSE TRAPS

The best way to get rid of mice is to use an appropriate snap trap. These traps are safe to use and highly effective. Glue traps or live traps may seem like a more humane option, but that is often not the case.

3. YOUR BAIT MATTERS

Most traps recommend placing a pea-size amount of peanut butter on the bait pan.  Soft cheese or wet cat food also works well. In general, a sticky bait is most likely to cause the mouse to trigger the trap.

4. TRAP PLACEMENT IS KEY

Traps should be placed about 2 to 10 feet apart along the wall and in corners. Traps can also be placed in cabinets, behind appliances and under furniture.

5. USE BAIT PACKAGES FOR LARGE, OPEN AREAS

Bait packages or bait stations can be a good way to prevent mice infestations outdoors or in large spaces like barns or outbuildings where it’s hard to seal off all entry points

6. ELIMINATE FOOD SOURCES

Bait packages or bait stations can be a good way to prevent mice infestations outdoors or in large spaces like barns or outbuildings where it’s hard to seal off all entry points

7. BOTH INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR MICE MUST BE ELIMINATED

Woodpiles, tall grass and leaf piles make the perfect place for mice to hide. Bird and pet food can also attract mice

8. CONSIDER A PET CAT

Cats are the perfect pet to help get rid of mice. Barn cats have always been a friend to farmers because they are so effective at eliminating mice.
