bounce dryer sheets on the beds or any area they are getting in. I worked at a camp and my cabin had lots of mice. Yes it worked

How do you keep them out of the house this house I lived in you could hear them in the walls. I was afraid they would crawl in bed with my children. Could someone give some good remedies. The glue trap does not work if you use it in the kitchen say near a stove and have like a skillet on the stove cause they use it for leverage to get off the glue trap seen it with my own eyes. I too need help. The town I live in I believe is infested with mice.

GROSS! Set lots of traps where the kids can't get to them. If possible, set out some poison UNDER the house. Also, put poison out where kids can't get to under--under the stove, washer and dryer. This should take care of the problem. NOW you need to find out how they are getting in and plug those holes with steel wool.
Hope this helps!

I have to agree, set alot of traps and always place them with the bait and trap side straight against the wall. Mice are nearly blind and will follow walls, having the trap aginst the wall will catch them even without bait because that where they travel. Peanut butter is a great bait to use because it's sticky and the mouse will spend more time on the trap eating increasing the chance of killing them. I never liked using poison because when the mouse died the smell would be there for long periods of time. As for filling holes, use steel wool. The truth is though, it's almost impossible to keep them out. They can squeeze through a hole the size of a dime. and chew that hole in a few hours. If you live in the country, your going to fight them worse. Get a couple of free cats, Feed them enough to keep them around, give them a warm place to sleep,(A dog house with a 100 watt bulb and some straw) slack off on the food when the mice are a problem. A good in house cat will help too.

I used a mouse repelant from orcllin9 HOW EVER YOU SPELL IT) in sikeston, its a spray that has all food products (stinks like crazy) but i sprayed it outside and around the garage and in the garage, it will run them off, has peper juice among other non leathel items in it, again you may want to smell it before you spray it in your house. it does 100% work, and only cost around 12 bucks, the steel wool works great, and so do glue traps, I had them in my garage real bad and heard them trying to get into the wall to come in the house, so i tried this spray and the are no more, hope this helps

I have always had trouble with mice and snakes(we live close to a feild and a ditch) but we found a couple little cats outside one day (iguess somebody had dropped them off) and started feeding them enough just to keep them around. They took care of everything, didn't see snake all summer and so far haven't had a mouse problem this winter. I don't think inside cats do as good a job for some reason though.

We use bar bait you can get it from Slushers,Delta Growers. We put in under the house and in the house where our animals cant get to it. It works.

Is that the kind that makes the body decompose in like 24 hours or something so you don't have to get rid of them or smell the stinch? If so it works really good we used to get that where I used to live from the lumber store but I wasn't aware anyone in Sikeston carried it.

Yes that is the one. It is a yellow color and comes in bar form that you brake in half. Slushers carries it and I think orschlin does too. It cost about $4.00.

Barr bait works and if you get the right kind they won't stink when they are dead. Just go to your local feed store and ask them for it, they will have it, it's what all the farmers that I know use and it does work.
it works
