If you have mice in your house does that mean you dont keep it clean??

I dont think so. Some areas have mice problems and some areas dont. I lived in a building that was soooo clean everything brand new, floors, paint and by me being a clean freek it was an ideal spot. But as we got settled into the place we noticed a we had a mouse. I thought mice only came to houses that werent kept clean. But i guess thats not the case. Anyone else with a mouse in the house??

Asalaam Alaikum, Naam there is the unwanted guess in my house a mouse along with their family. I wanted a cat badly but im allergic to them at least thats what the allergist years ago told me along with my children having asthma. I hear cats will definitely get rid of that problem. The thing is i live in the city in a row house and this is a common problem. Mice breed fastly and i was wondering why i saw so many cats in the neighborhood. This is why and yes i clean but they sometimes set up camp in here.lol.

Wa alaikum salaam Yeh its a common problem in the city to have mice. And a cat will get that job done A.S.A.P but mashaallah you cant get one. Try glue traps they work good... i cant take them because the mice are still alive on them and you have to touch the trap to get it out of the house illllll.

As Salaamu Alaikum,I have had field mice and they are very tiny and have like a brown color to them. They actually come form outside. We realized that there was a hole coming from a closet that was outside on the back porch. They are really a nusiance. I don't think they are from being unclean all the time. If you give them nothing to come and eat they should have no reason to be there. I find what works is putting poision in the basement that is where they start from. I haven't seen any in my house yet but the winter time is when they like to come out.

Assalamu alaikum. I remember back home we used to have some of those visitors, but that was because our front side neighbors mowed their lawn every, like, SubhanaAllah, like months, and they would go accross to our house. I hated that!

Mice can come into the cleanest of houses, so no, it doesn't mean your house is not clean if a mouse comes in. They start to come in when the weather gets cold outside and they search for heat. So, during November and December is our worst time for mice here. It's not so bad where we live now, but we lived in an old cottage up till last year and we had an awful problem with mice then. The important thing is to find where the little blighters are coming in and seal it up. I tried using those plug in mouse repellant things but they didn't work. The mice used to play underneath them. Apparantly the become immune to the things. So, in the end I just used traps to get them.

Yeh i agree i dont like killing them, They are lining creatures, If i could just chase them out of the house i would. But sometimes if they become a problem i'll have to but some traps.

Well one can have mouse as a pet! I had one earlier, but its true that they create a lot of litterings and spoil the show of the house. But going by the spirit of the question, I don't think having a mouse in house should reflect anything negative about the reputation of the house. And when they are in the open mouse are themselves capable to cause much of damage with their teeth!!

i dont think so, we have kept our place clean and we still got one every once in a while. i think they can just crawl in and out of places to hunt for food.

I guess that just means that some mouse lived close to your house and eventually got it. My dad once even got a mouse in his SUV! CouldnĀ“t get rid of it for months - it was hiding somewhere... and eventually he sold the car (for another reason) with that mouse in it hehehe
