    Default F@#$%^g Mice

    So just realized today that since its got cold the last few days we got mice in our new house(well its 20 years old but we just moved in). Found mice droppings ALL over the carpet not just along the walls and my closet was full of droppings. I went and bought some regular mice traps and baited them with peanut butter and put some sticky traps down too on the carpet. I sealed up every hole I could find for pipes and such with expanding foam. Also did the obvious and cleaned up anything they might be able to eat and sealed the pantry door with a towel at the bottom to keep them out.

    Any more tips to get rid of the mice asap?

    Thanks
    Jeremy

    5 gallon bucket. 2 gallons of water, 1 jar of peanut butter and a wood ramp
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Get the snap traps with the big fake plastic cheese as a trigger. They work way better than the kind with the metal trigger.

    I get a mouse or two in the house every time it gets cold. These traps usually get them in a day. Sometimes within an hour.

    haha wtf?

    Laid all the traps and didn't get any over night but also don't see any new droppings so hopefully maybe sealed them out of the house but i doubt that's the case.

    Yeah the snap traps with peanut butter work for me. I had one or two here and there. I think I had a mole or vole in my garage earlier this week. Weird looking thing, but want to make sure the garage is rodent free when the car goes into storage. I don't want to have to rewire anything.
