Before beginning any extermination methods, it is necessary to identify what’s attracting mice to your property and how they are gaining access inside. Taking proper steps is vital to keep mice from invading your home or business. All food sources and entry points must be identified by a trained wildlife expert such as Critter Control® of Miami, so they can be eliminated accordingly.
Control and Safety
To ensure you are not accidentally giving mice an open invitation to come onto your property or inside your home, there are a few things you can do:
- Keep open food in containers with tight lids
- Keep countertops, sinks, and kitchen floors clean
- Seal all cracks, holes, and crevices with steel or concrete
- Ensure there are no open areas around pipes, gas lines, and dryer vents
- Keep the lids of both outside and inside garbage cans closed
Trapping and Removal
There are many home extermination techniques out on the market, varying from traps to baits. However, traps and baits can be dangerous for humans and pets if improperly placed. Also, if the specific methods you are using are ineffective, you could end up wasting both time and money while continuing to have an infestation.

While we strive to relocate all wildlife we remove from a home or business, it is illegal and impossible to relocate rodents such as mice. Therefore the best solution is to humanely exterminate them.
