Awww i feel for ya. I have mice in my loft and have tried traps and the electronic devices. If you can find where they are getting in and try and block up all access points then you have a chance of keeping then out

You must have holes somewhere for them to be getting in, also need to make sure that your leaving nothing lying around, we live very close to fields so we get field mice during the summer, luckily there not very smart and can be caught very quickly, last year I caught 1 everyday for 5 days, I honestly thought to myself that I was never gonna get rid of them, but theres not been one since.

I think I read something about hamsters, mice hate the urine of hamsters, will have to double check, I could be talking crap.

The local authority normally do cut price deals for specialist pest infestations, maybe give them a call :) . They did a HUGE wasps nest last year in my loft for £25 :thumbsup:

I think we might be neighbours Ashley lol as I also live beside loads of fields and have had field mice. Where I am there is only 9 houses in a row and we all had them - was horrible! But we got the council in who sorted it for £25 - and was money well spent.

Yes OP u need to work out where they are coming in. Once u find that out - then ur on ur way to sorting this. I dont think those plug in things work.

Good luck!

Persist with the traps. We get mice coming in from the fields at this time of year and put down 5 traps in various rooms - 2 in kitchen, 3 elsewhere.
You can't find/block up the holes - they get in they can climb up roughcast and get in through roof.
Check traps every day and remove corpses.
Use peanut butter as bait.
Hope this helps

I have an air rifle I don't mind using?
#15
The Council will bait and treat for a fee - plus you will need to take the advice of Ashley and ensure you proof your house by blocking up all holes.
#16
try a usb mouse

Ashley you're a mouser :w00t:
#18
I agree with the previous posters that have said block up all the holes, also make sure there arent lil smidgeons of food left laying around, clean up before bed and night and when you wake up too as if the mice are running around at night they pee everywhere and you dont wanna get sick xxx
#19
put food out... use smartwater to see where they're going.. and block access to that place.

i had the same problem last year in my new house. the pest control guy that came round gave the same advice as above, also he said that mice can fit through the smallest holes and even through the sink holes.

another advice he gave is to tell the people next door to you, that you are havin poison in your home to get rid of mice and that they should do the same..otherwise the mice will escape to your next door neighbours and come around to yours again(eeek).

pest control guy used poison called sortex, makes the mice very sleepy, and the worst thing they can die anywhere...also the stickers work wonders...good luck,

Just be wary of poison, my cat died last week after ingesting a mouse.

I'd get it done professionally, or consider swapping houses with someone who could bring their cat for a few days, as long as you don't have allergies or asthma etc that could be triggered when you return.

You need to make sure your neighbours are taking a similar approach to getting rid of mice otherwise it's going to be a constant infestation that you have to deal with as you're not treating the cause. We've had several infestations and just had to weather them, we established the routes the mice were using and placed traps on them. Once we'd managed this we were capturing three mice a night for two weeks.

I don't think there's any point in trying to block up holes as mice are tiny allowing them to fit through very small gaps.

we had a similar mice problem in our home, it wasa newly built only 5 yeras ago and we tried everything, we eventually got the builders back in as we thought they were getting in undergound somewhere.

we were right, where the water main entered the house they had put it in ducting but not filled in around it, ever since we had that done we've had no mice

you really need to find out where they are getting in or you will never get rid of them
