One skill all homeowners and renters should master is knowing how to get rid of mice and other rodents. Depending on your perspective and level of infestation, these unwanted critters can range from an annoyance to a nightmare. They gnaw on stuff, leave poop around your house, and—worst of all—carry diseases. Mice also multiply quickly—so what may start out as a few critters nibbling away in the pantry can turn into a full-on mice invasion in a couple of weeks. The good news? Getting rid of mice takes some work, but it’s not impossible.
