    In the house or garage or shed, put out mouse or rat traps baited with peanut butter. Get the cheapest you can find, they don't know the difference on the peanut butter. The sticky traps work for mice if you put it on the paths they like to take.

    hello Avery. The best way is to set traps, or put D-con out. I also put moth balls in all of our sheds. They don't like them. I would check for areas where they get in and seal it off.

    Traps or poison. I like the TomKat mice and rat poison in the little pouches you don't have to even open up,,,, they chew right through the bag.

    The only true organic rat and mice control is a cat.
    If the problem has been going on for a while and is getting worse... and you have tried several of the over the counter baits from your local home improvement store... then it is probably time to call an exterminator.
    Go on or and find a reputable one...
    They know where to look for entry points, and how to block those holes to allow the pest to leave and not get back in... they also know how best to treat for the pests and not endanger your kids or your pets.
    And they will give you good advice on ways to avoid attracting the critters in the first place.... like free feeding dogs or cats on the back patio or in the garage... can you say... free buffet...
    It could save you from a total infestation and be money well spent in the long run.

    Hi there, a good mouse prevention technique is to fill any holes in your home with steel wool. This can be anywhere from air vents to hole in your kitchen cupboards. This will stop any mouse from trying to enter your home. Mice are known to be able to chew through almost anything, especially if they think food is on the other side, but they can’t chew through steel Wool.
