The mice can fit in all types of holes if they can adjust their mouth in it. It’s a natural ability they have to move from little holes. They adapt their mouths in the gaps to check either they can run or not from a hole.
A hole with the size of a nickel is enough for the rats to squeeze through while the holes with the size of a dime are enough for the mice to move.

Do you want to get rid of them?
Let me discuss some ways to get rid of mice. Stay with me!
How to Get Rid of Mice?
There are some tips for you to get rid of them quickly. These are straightforward tips,and you can apply easily to your home. Keep my words!
- Eliminate Entry Points
- Use Traps
- Choose Bait for Mouse Traps
- Proper Placement of Traps
- Bait Stations
- Get Rid of Poor Sanitation
These steps are beneficial, and I have applied to my home also to get rid of them. To use these steps, stay with me!
Eliminate Entry Points
Mouse enters your home through the little holes. You need to check your building carefully. If you find some holes or cracks in the walls, identify them.
Now, buy silicone from the market available at low prices. You can fill all the holes and cracks in the walls with the use of silicone.
People never give attention to the holes and cracks in the walls if you are one of these, you need to think about this because it is not possible to get rid of them without removing the entry points.
I think the use of traps is the best way to get rid of them. To get rid of them, you have to stop their increasing population. If you try to kill a mouse and don’t give attention to the growing community, you will not be prosperous to get rid of them. Traps are the best to stop their community.
Choose Bait for Mouse Traps
Now, the time has come to choose the bait for traps. As I mentioned, house mice have a lot of attraction to the food. It means that food is the weakness of mice. You should use their weakness as your strong point.
Now, the question is what they like to eat. There is nothing special but many foods they want to eat and find their favorite foods with the smell of foods. They like to eat chocolate, bacon, peanut, dry fruits, etc. Now, tie the menu with the trap.
Proper Placement of Traps
After arranging the traps and the bait for traps, you have to choose the place to put these traps in your home. In my opinion, the best place to set these traps is perpendicular to the walls. I hope you will catch them quickly.
The interesting points about mice, they are shy and never travel more than 10 to 20 feet from the food sources and their nests. So, you should analyze their nests and put traps in the distance of 10 feet from their nests.
You have not done the task, but you have to change the location of traps every two days to capture all mice at your home. If you don’t improve the situation, it is not possible to remove all of them.
These stations are available in the market. Usually, bait stations come in packets, and you can buy from the market. Mice smell the food and try to eat. After eating the bait, they die because the poison was mixed in the bait.
There are some problems with this step. If you put these bait stations at your home openly, your children can also eat them. So, I do not recommend these baits if you have children or children come to your house on a daily basis. If you have children, skip this step and try other methods I have discussed.
Get Rid of Poor Sanitation
In my opinion, strong sanitation never helps to get rid of mice, but poor hygiene helps the mice to enter your home. 3 to 4 grams of food is enough for mice in a day to live. So, you have to clean your floor properly to eliminate particles of food.
If there is any food on the floor, they can eat and hide for a day. You will not be able to attract them for their killing. So, you have to eliminate all the resources of food first then lure them with the bait on traps. They will come to eat the bait and never go back.
As you know, cats love to hunt a mouse. I have also studied that some types of dogs also want to eat mice in their lunch. So, if you’re going to get rid of mice, you can take a pet for your home in the form of a cat or dog which loves to eat mice.
The cats have beautiful looks, and they can increase the beauty of your home. They will also help you to get rid of mice.
