1. Set up a Bin or Bucket Trap
Get a tall garbage can that’s at least two feet tall. Place it next to the kitchen counter. Next, get a cardboard tube and put a spoonful of peanut butter at the end of the tube. Carefully place the tube so that it’s balanced along the edge of the counter. The mouse will follow the smell of the peanut butter and fall into the bin.

2. Lock Food in Hard Containers
Prevention is the best form of rodent control. Stop attracting mice to your home by storing food in hard plastic containers. You’ll want to make sure these containers are air tight so the mouse can’t smell through it.

Mice can fit through a hole as small as an eraser. Identify these entrance points and fill them with steel wool and caulk compound.

4. Repel Mice with Peppermint Oil
Put a few drops of peppermint oil on cotton balls and put them on every place where you think a mouse would pass by. They can’t stand the smell of peppermint.
