How to Get Rid of Mice

Mice look for access to buildings for food and shelter. They search for easy, abundant sources of food and undisturbed areas to nest. By removing available food sources, your home or business will be less attractive to mice. You will also help to reduce food contamination risks and the spread of disease.

Mice are not fussy eaters and will seek out leftovers on worktops, possibly spreading pathogens and diseases such as Salmonella, Leptospirosis or Hantavirus, as they search for food.

Using cats or plants to get rid of mice

Getting a cat to deter mice is an old wives tale. Cats do instinctively hunt mice, but a pet is rarely effective mouse control.

There are also several plants that mice allegedly dislike, including peppermint, chamomile, lavender, cloves and chillies. These could be used as a minor deterrent, but none can promise a mouse-free home or business.
