    How do you get rid of mice/rats successfully

    Please Help!!!!

    iv been noticing mice droppings in my kitchen the last few weeks, under cooker/sink, behind fridge... so iv put out baits and poison...but its not working. i can see poison has been eaten everytime iv put it there but its not killing them...the baits are not good at catching either, iv tried allsorts, iv searched google for all the tips n tricks, have tried it all but not working... one tip i still need to check is placing peppermint on cotton wool which should deter them away, not sure though if it'll work, as the mice seem to be very clever in avoiding all the traps iv set. plz help... im having sleepless nights becoz of this problem, as im a clean freak n perfectionist i cant believe its happening in my nice clean home.. the mice appear to be coming from next door from under the floorboards, i have blocked every possible entry from outside and blocked holes with steel wool pads etc... plz help if you have been successful in getting rid of them. it will be very much appreciated!!

    Thank you

        the best traps are the glue ones.....they are not necessarily humane but they work.
        place them where you have seen the droppings and in all the places where you think they might be travelling.
        this was the best way that I found to get rid of them......

        consider prevention as well......look for any holes in your walls near plumbing etc that they might be coming through and block them with foaming insulation that hardens when you spray it.
        a pest control guy once told me that they can find their way through a hole the thickness of a ball-point pen!

          hink they might be travelling.
          The only solution! It may take time but only this is going to work. Trap them to run on these sticky glue pads by luring them by food placed across the pad. Make their path narrow.

            You need a billi. And some cheese. Swiss...it has them holes in it just makes for a more cuter visual effect.

              you need a flute...play a looney tune on the flute and lure them out of their hidings and lead them away from your house, your neighbourhood and your city...to a far away land!
              Life is NOT measured by the number of breaths we take but the moments that take our breath away!!!
              16 breaths a minute, 23040 a day...NO one knows which one will be their LAST!

                    Please clean your house thoroughly, make sure there are no crumbs anywhere. Mice only come when there is food for them to munch on.

                      ^ that is so wrong......mice come anyway....often to escape the cold outside when winter arrives.

                        I would move. I would actually die if I saw a mouse.
                        Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

                          That can be correct,but it is not the only reason mice will come.

                              Just about two weeks ago when we were going through a power outage, I discovered there was a mouse in the house, found a half eaten candy bar. I had a mini heart attack right there and then. As naive as I am, I was hoping candy might have killed the mouse. My husband told me otherwise .... he said and I quote, "wo tou khush ho raha ho ga ussay candy khanay ko mili hai. I found that disgusting and hilarious at the same time. Let me tell you I don't think I can ever eat thar particular candy ever again in my life. Immediately got glue traps and kept hoping I wouldn't have an encounter with the mouse and thank god I didn't. It was caught the very next morning.

                              This is my success story of how we got rid of the mouse, hope to read your's soon.
