This will now be the 4th fall I have been in this house. This has been the worst fall season for mice getting into the house. Before now, I have only had an occasional mouse get into the house and a snap trap usually got him/her and no others were caught. Now I am catching between 2 and 3 mice every night! I sure would like to find where they are getting in, but short of totally emptying the house of all possessions, this is nearly impossible.
I have found that traditional snap traps are the most effective and most humane as in usually a quick death. Sticky traps are just cruel. Some friends swear by the water bucket method, but I would much rather dispose of a dry mouse than a soaking wet one.
What do others here do for house mouse control? Cats?
Tier 1 - I just want something green. Perennial "weeds" that stay green year round are welcome.
