Mice

Question

Does anybody know how to get rid of mice in a mice-friendly way? We have been having this problem, but they do not go into the live traps. We also spread Cayenne pepper in every possible corner and at the points of entry, but so far to no avail. Getting a cat is not an option, by the way!

Get a cat! or even encourage someone else's cat to visit you regularly.

What's wrong with mice? Rats are a bigger problem.

If you have an infestation of mice, cayenne pepper isn't going to do anything. As Becasse has said, get a cat, or else get proper traps and poison. If you do nothing but put out pepper, you're going to have major problems.

Once you have dealt with them, you now need to find and deal with the cause of the infestation, and locate where they are entering your property.

If you don't, the mice will come back again, and again, and again, forever.

Rodenticide from Brico.

Put balls of aluminium foil where they generally hide. They don't like aluminium foil.
Don't kill them; it won't solve the problem and it's cruel. If you catch one let it out in the garden. Field mice are a protected species in Europe.
Find the hole and close it.
