Mice: How Do I Get Rid Of Mice In My Walls?

Mice love going inside walls because they offer comfort, protection and solitude.  As excellent climbers, mice use wall studs the same way we use sidewalks.

With 3 simple steps you can get rid of mice in your walls.

Step 1:  Identify that you have mice.  This may seem redundant but proper pest identification is the most important step.  If you hear light scurrying or scratching in your walls during the evening and night hours, you likely have mice.

Step 2:  Lure the mice out.  Mice are always hungry so use this to your advantage.  Place bait on snap traps and let the mice come to you.  You don’t have to run out and buy mice poison.  Some of their favourite baits are peanut butter, Nutella and Tootsie Rolls.  Try offering a variety to increase your chances of success.

Step 3:  Prevent mice from getting into your walls.  Seal any openings larger than 1/4 inch.  Steel wool mixed with caulking compound makes a good plug.
