8 Poison-Free Ways to Get Rid of Mice

“If you’ve found the signs of mice living in your home I encourage you to learn how to get rid of mice naturally. Mice carry at least 27 different diseases ranging from hantavirus to leptospirosis and rat bite fever: all of which pose the risk of long-term illness and even death. Although most rodent-control methods are highly toxic or pose other dangers to children or pets, natural methods of mouse control are safe yet still effective. This guide explains how to prevent mice from entering your home, and how to get rid of mice naturally if they’ve already made their way indoors — even if they’ve taken up residence in your walls.”

Mice are cute little critters, but that doesn’t mean we want them sharing our homes with us. As adorable as their tiny whiskery faces are, the disease they spread via urine (which they communicate with, and therefore leave a lot of lying around) and feces-not to mention the extensive damage they can do when they put their teeth to something-is no joke. But a lot of us (myself included) don’t want to turn to traditional snap traps (have you ever seen one go wrong? It’s not pretty) or rodenticides that pose serious risk to children, pets, other wildlife, and the environment.

Being naturally nocturnal, voracious nibblers, and rapid reproducers (starting at the tender age of 6 weeks) how does one go about dealing with mice without turning to mainstream methods? Enter a fun little idea called integrated pest management (IPM.) It takes some more work, dedication, and thought than other methods, but you can manage without using toxic chemicals, which makes it far superior in my opinion. IPM involves pest proofing your home by sealing up any potential entrances, keeping food well sealed and securely locked away, knowing your pests habits, likes/dislikes, and eliminating any water sources.
