When you see mice in your home, the first step is to call Insight Pest Solutions in order to get professional help to keep them out. However, here are some tips on how to get rid of mice temporarily in between the time you call us and the time we get there.
The first step is to find where the mice are getting in and out. Finding out how they are getting into your home will help set the stage for eliminating those places where they are coming from. However, just covering holes that might be where they are entering won’t do much. You need to recognize their patterns of where they are going.
Once you have recognized their patterns, it is important to eliminate the places where they are entering. Some ways of doing this would be to seal the areas in the walls, windows, doors or any openings that they have mouse activity around them. This will help keep out anymore mice and keep in the mice that are already there making it easier for us to find and catch them.
When mice originally find your home to set up camp, it is because of the warmth and food that your home provides for them. In order to keep food and water away from them, make sure you store your grains and cereals in sealed containers. You should also store your fruit, potatoes and other perishable items sealed in your refrigerator. Crumbs should be swept up and kept in your garbage sealed tight.
Many people like to use natural home remedies to get rid of bugs or treat bug bites, however, in this case, it would be good to skip the natural home remedies. According to Cindy Mannes, a spokesperson for the National Pest Management Association, there is no science or evidence behind it, therefore, is not proven to work.
