Friends, I saw some small mice in my room, they have bitten one side of the mattress on my bed, had cut the wires leading to my computer and have left smelly excretions in my room, other rooms, here and there, the maidservant is not ready to clean it, even though I offered her money, my wife is out at my daughter’s home. So today I have set a rat trap , I have put some pieces of tomato inside it, once a rat enters it will be trapped, I will tell the maid to release it near the river, 200 meters away from home. I don’t like to give poison and kill them; I can’t search the dead body, and make the rooms smell like hell. How do you tackle the mice problem in your home, have you mice in your homes? Please share your experience on ‘mice in home’ and comment on this discussion. Thanks in advance. Professor ‘Bhuwan’. . Cheers have a lucky day ahead.

This will solve your problem for sure. You need gloves on your hands and you need to buy oil of peppermint from a health food store. Put the oil on cotton balls around the affected area. the mice will eat the cotton balls and die and you will never smell them.

If ou use oil of peppermint on the cotton balls you will not smell the rat. It is used all over Ny. Even the health food store manager will tell you this. try it before you say it won't work. Take care.

We used to have mice in my mom's house. I remember how they smelled. We tried to rid ourselves of them but they are tough. We set traps and that did the trick for awhile or so we thought. They do tend to multiply. You really have to stay on it and keep the traps all over. There are so many so quickly.

I also use to do in the same way. Keeping rat poison will cause further problems. In fact now when we go back to our home after nearly six months the rats would have made a hell in my flat. We use to keep "masala vada" instead of tomatoes. They get attracted for the aroma surrounding vada made with onion and masala. U can keep a portion of samosa also.

I think the best way to rid the house of mice and rats is to deny them of food, tell your maids not to leave food scraps in the kitchen and clean or pick up what the children drop on the floor. Also keep the garbage or trash can well covered so as not to attract these pests, In my case I also have a resident cat. If there are already mice then I think that trap would be just fine, I use to have one like that but what I have observed, after catching and using it several times, the rats become wise, perhaps because of the odor so it has to be soaped and cleaned with hot water, the same holds true with poison, rats seem to detect it after using for some time. I find chicken bones with little meat in it or crab left overs to be a good bait, perhaps because they are attracted by the smell, good luck Prof my friend and hope you catch them all

Hmmmm I also face this problem and lots of mice in my bedroom also so thanks to share this discussion and I dont know about tomato so thanks once again for giving nice way to catch the mice. I was putting some pieces of chapati so sometime rat is goes inside and once rat enters it trapped automatically. But now only 1 or 2 mice in hour house but lizards (Chipkali) is more. Tell me the lizards solution.

Buy a sticky pad, I don't know the correct term. But it really works. Place it on the corner of your house. And watch them stick unto it. It's funny. Just let them stick, and let dem die from starvation or what. Or place a heavy object on them. The latter is like torture. But later, you will realize the damage they are giving to you so show no mercy.

A cinnamon flavor aromatherapy also works, or a peppermint one.

There's a mice in my home. I put rat trap on it but I used raw meat. When i caught the mice, I will take it outside of my home where my cat slept. But months later, another mice come along I just repeat the process. I don't used poison or mouse trap that squeeze the mouse because it is disgusting and too hard to find when it smells.

I saw a mouse when I moved in 4 years ago but my dog Cookie got it. I haven't seen any since then so she is either a very good mouser or they are not attracted to the house. There are also a lot of cats that I feed, feral strays that probably protect the house.
