Not sure if this belongs here or not... Friends of ours have had bad mice problems this year at their cabin. Anyone have any helpful hints? Thanks!

Hmmm, could they borrow a cat from someone?

IF they can find out where the mice are getting in (remember they only need 1/8" gap to get in) stuff it with steel wool. They cant chew through it.

They could spread moth balls around, but be sure to get them all up before woofy gets to them. Some people hate the smell, and its not good for us either, but the mice dont like the smell.

Get the stinkiest most awful perfumy cheap dryer sheets you can find, put them in drawers cabinets, closets, every where. Again the mice dont like the smell.

Plain old fashioned snap traps.

Be sure there is absolutely no source of food or water accesible.

if you can find the holes, fine steel wool stuffed in it will deter them. it hurts their teeth.

Here is how you can find all the holes find one you only need one because most likeys some of them will be connected get a smoke bomb or some kind of thing that smokes when you light it put it in the hole and watch wehre the smoke comes out but be careful if theres lots of mice when htey see or smell the smoke theyll scatter so make sure you have a person who isnt afraid of them to do it also keep an eye of the smoke bomb or whatever u use to smoke it out you do not want to set the place on fire so keep some water or fire estingusher handy!


pleaseee... Betty Crocker aint got nothing on me =)
