Mouse Exterminator Tips - Westside Pest Control

Basic Mice Removal Tactics

Why anyone would want to get rid of a mouse infestation is not a difficult question to answer. They are highly unsanitary, they eat your food, and they give most people the heebie-jeebies.

They also reproduce at a rate, so if they start living in the same space as you, soon there will be a lot more of them in that space with you.

To avoid this situation everyone should be made aware of some basic mouse removal tactics if you come see signs of these pesky buggers in your space.

If you do not want to handle it yourself, call the Vancouver Mouse Removal experts, we'll have someone over to you right away.

1. Traps

Some of them are made to cater to the needs of the people who are not comfortable with violence,
while others are made for maximum efficiency, meaning they don't mind using violence as a solution.
However, whichever one you prefer, a mouse trap is one of the most commonly known and used
methods for catching and getting rid of mice and for a good reason too.


Traps should always be used according to the provided instructions. Placing the traps along the walls,
which may contain the entry points, will give you a higher statistical possibility of catching mice. Traps
should always be fitted with baits, which give off a strong smell to attract the mice.

2. Find and seal entry points

Mice are not the best climbers in the animal kingdoms, and this is the reason why they choose to
squeeze through even the tiniest of holes to get to where they wish to get. This solution wastes no time
and goes straight to the source allowing you to deal with your problem with the least hassle.


When searching for an entry point, make sure you check very carefully along the edge of the floor or
maybe on your outdoor fence.

3. Poison

Poison seems cruel but is actually a highly efficient means of getting rid of a rodent infestation.


The poison must always be handled wearing gloves, and must always be placed in a location where any
children or pets wandering the house don’t get their hands on it as the results of that collision could
prove fatally dangerous.

4. Mouse repellant scents

Mouse repellant scents are a very real concept, and the most commonly known scent that mice choose
to avoid is peppermint.


Place cotton balls soaked in peppermint essential oil and place them near all potential entry points to
prevent mice from entering in the first place.
