Something that we all hope never happens is an invasion of rodents in our home. No matter where you live and how clean your house is, it is inevitable that you will see a mouse in your home at one point or another. Mice are natural scavengers and they will invade places where they believe there is a found source. Unfortunately, the packed cupboards in our homes make a perfect snack for mice and so it is likely that a mouse will get into them when they get the chance.

Mice are incredibly small and they find it easy to navigate around a home without making much noise. To an untrained eye, it can be incredibly difficult to locate a mouse, which can make the process of getting rid of them much longer.

Mouse Bait Stations
Though you have likely already heard of mouse bait stations, you may not know how to use mouse bait stations. You are likely familiar with mouse bait, which is a poison that is used to kill any mice that may be in your home.
Though mouse bait is an effective way to get rid of the mice in your house, it can be easy for it to be blown away from the wind and also be eaten by other animals.

They create a protective shell around the poison, which means that the only animals that will be able to get into the stations are mice.
Along with the poison, you should fill the stations with other foods that are loved by mice. For example, bread products or even foods that have high sugar content. This is a great way to get rid of mice and it takes minimal effort from you.
