The reason that most people are terrified of having mice in their space is that they can get into almost anywhere that they want to – the sewer, the attic, in the walls, in and around trash bins, and even in your garage. Plus, they sell! Getting rid of mice could be a herculean task if it is not handled with the right information and methodology.
Mice particularly like to hide inside garage walls. They enter through pipes, ground vents, or most often, through the door bumper at the ends of the garage door. These do not quite extend all the way to the ends, and the ensuing gap is often capitalized on by small animals like rats, mice, and lizards.
Mice are even more fond of the garage because an average American garage is full of hiding places; stashed boxes, bicycles, tools, summer toys, and other things that can be climbed.
The singular most effective way to keep mice out of your garage is to block their entry into the garage. Without an opening to squeeze through, there would be no mouse to remove. That being said, if you already have mice inside of your garage, here is what to do:
Traps are a great and effective way to get rid of mice already living in your garage. There are several types:
One-way exclusion funnel
All identified rodent entry holes into the garage must have been identified and sealed off except for one (and it should lead outside) prior to setting this up. Place the funnel over the one remaining entry point and carefully fix it over the mouth of this opening. Once the mouse goes out through it, it would be unable to go back inside. After successfully removing the rodents, proceed to seal off this one remaining opening to prevent any re-entry.
It consists of a really strong adhesive to which mice get stuck by their paws as soon as they attempt to walk over it. Include a bait in it and lay several glue traps across the garage. Remember to check frequently, so the mouse does not stay stuck to the glue trap for hours, days or even weeks, finally dying inhumanely of hunger and thirst.
Here we have a heavy gauge, steel spring bar that traps rodents and kills them instantly. The trap goes off when a rodent steps on its trigger plate, usually drawn by a juicy bait; the spring system is released, snaps and kills the rodent instantly.
