First of all, mice are a little dumb, but that fact won’t help much when you have tried everything and are still having trouble getting rid of mice in your home. What they lack in cleverness, they make up for in tenacity and hunger.
Most homeowner mouse trapping efforts result in occasional catches, but seldom completely eliminate mouse problems.
Successful mouse trapping that eliminates a mouse infestation begins with a detailed inspection under your home, throughout the home, inside the attic and around the exterior of your home. As you inspect your home look for droppings, brown grease rub marks and evidence of gnawing. Don’t forget to look behind and under stored items.
