Most homes have problems with mice taking up residence there, especially in the ductwork, since mice like to find a safe place to bed down and store food. Not only is it annoying and frustrating, but it can even be deadly. Fortunately, there are a few steps to tackle this problem. One, investigate and find out where they're entering your house from, and look for droppings or sight / smell of urine. Second, prepare yourself with the necessary supplies, like wooden mouse traps baited with peanut butter. Then, set and check the traps. Finally, call a professional if you can't get rid of it yourself.
- If you see droppings around your home or hear gnawing noises, chances are you have mice in your duct work.
- One way to eliminate rodents in your duct work is to set traps near all of your heat registers.
- Be sure to check traps daily and use gloves to remove any rodents that have been caught.
