  • Best Way To Catch Mice

    If you need mouse pest control, what works:

    1. A cat? Like many buildings in London, Essex and Kent, Downing Street is constantly trying to control and prevent mice infestations. In our experience, cats don't make much difference. In fact, a cat can even introduce a mouse issue - bringing a live mouse as an offering. Cats are pampered and not in the food chain, so rarely perform well as a pest controller for mice.

    2. Sonic plugs? We visit lots of places with these, but they still have mice!

    3. Snap traps? You'll catch some, but you won't control the mouse issue with just snap traps

    4. Glue Boards? They work (the DIY ones don't work that well though), but are cruel and very time intensive - messy as well

    5. Poison? Works really well, if you have the right poison, and know what to do with it (cavities are key)

    6. Electronic Traps? We have found the rat version of these works very well (but often you can't get them where the mice are, e.g. cavities)


    At MG Pest Control we recommend you have a proper pest control strategy in place to tackle the mouse issue. If you are in Kent, Essex or London, give us a call if you'd like to know how we catch mice.
