BEST WAY TO GET RID OF MICE IN KITCHEN
In most cases, homeowners only find out about a mouse infestation when the condition is already severe. This happens because mice leave very small hints of their presence in a place, simply because one of their talents is to stay hidden. But there are ways to determine whether you’re dealing with a mice infestation. One would be is that you may see some chewed edges and holes in some of your food items in the kitchen and that there could be some type of droppings in some of your drawers. But in some very rare cases, mice tend to be bold enough to jump in front of your while you’re in the kitchen – this usually happens when they smell and want to feed off on something that you’re actively using in the kitchen counters.
Who would want an intruder in their homes, right? We’re sure that you want to be left alone by these creatures lest have them munching over your food before you even have the chance to enjoy for yourself! That can be very repulsing, aggravating and irritating.
It’s a good thing that there are several ways you can do in order to make sure that you get rid of these creatures from your kitchen and ultimately your home.
First thing’s first, don’t try to jump in try to attack them unwisely. As these creatures are wise, remember how they are great in staying undetected? Remember that a mice infestation isn’t the end of the world and it doesn’t mean that you’ve been very unclean about your home and your kitchen. But what it means is that your kitchen might have been an easy source of food for the mouse to gain access to food. Don’t worry though. This can still be fixed and so remember, breathe and let us walk you through the entire process.
Look for the spots and entry points in which the mice are able to get in to your kitchen. As we hate to admit it, mice can be crafty enough to even make it to a ¼ inch hole or cracks. This is because they have flexible bodies and skeletons that allow them to move through even in very tight spaces – which is also the reason why they could have easily gained access to your kitchen.
So remember, you have to close in all the gaps and holes that can serve as entry points for the mice. Best to check on your cabinets and drawers if you have holes. If you do happen to see holes and reasonable gaps for mice to enter in, plug these spaces up with steel wool. This will work great in repelling these creatures as their teeth is irritated by the steel wool which does not allow them to chew their way in.
