How to Get Rid of Mice

Mice may look cute but they are not something you want living in your house. We came home one night to find that we had one crawling on our fireplace screen. After tearing the place apart and lifting up one of our couches we realized that we had 2 mice as they darted across the floor. I went to HEB, purchased 6 mousetraps for around $3. I put peanut butter on the trap (cheese is great if you are trying to catch Stuart Little) The next morning I awoke to 2 dead mice! I also learned that mice tend to run the same path constantly so where ever you have a mouse sighting make sure you place a mousetrap there because he is bound to return. $3 compared to having an expert come out and lay down sticky pads…I think we came out on top!
