HOW TO GET RID OF MICE IN THE WALLS
If you think that you have a mice infestation in your home, then you’re probably right. If you hear sounds of what seem like tiny little feet running up and down on some of the walls in your home then it’s probably best to start taking the necessary precautions in eliminating the mice presence in your home. For starters, you can simply put in snap traps in the bottom of the walls where they may seem to go pass through. Place the traps facing the wall in order to capture the rodents once they try to get to the bait you set in for them. Position the traps along edges of walls that means behind even big furniture if you can. Mice like to travel through the wall edges to avoid being seen and captured. Using actual edible traps are better than leaving poisoned traps is still better since the mice can be too hard to find when they actually die from the poison as the effects of such chemicals are not immediate.
Now, if we’re talking about mice in the walls then chances are some of those are not even sure on how to get out of the walls which might pose as a problem if you’re not going to deal with the problem through a wise approach. If you have mice in your walls you can do the following:
- Drill in a nickel-sized hole in your wall near the bottom
- Create a hole on the side of a cardboard box and then fill the box with any bait that you have which gives off a strong smell so mice can easily sense it and then cover the top part of the box with transparent or cellophane cover in order to secure the box and keep the mice from getting out once caught in the trap.
- Give the trap a couple of days for the effectivity. Check once in a while to see if there has been mice caught or if you need to replace the bait placed.
- Repeat the process until there are no more mice on the wall.
In order to fully avoid this type of infestation from happening again in your home, you have to look and seal off possible holes in which the mice could pass through in order to regain entry to your house. Inspect all air ventilation tubes up to the tubes connecting to the external part of the house. Cover these gaps and holes with mesh wire so that mice will not be able to eat through and slip through it. Only when you are confident that you’ve beaten the infestation in your home then you can seal back the hole that you drilled on the wall.
