Did you recently start living in Amsterdam? Then you might not know that there is a big mice problem. Did your cables magically broke, is your food gnawed and are there small turds in your home?Then the mice found a way in to your home. But we have the solution for you.
In the Netherlands there isn’t been a real Winter in a few years. The Winters are soft, what causes the mice to live on. They need a warm space for the Winter and crawl into your home in Amsterdam. In a big city like Amsterdam there is a lot of food, what also causes a lot of mice. The buildings are old, and have enough holes for the mice to enter your home. Also, Amsterdam has a lot of canals, so there is more food in Amsterdam, but also more to drink for the mice.
How do you get rid of the mice? Here are three tips:
- Repair big openings and gaps.
This makes sure it’s harder for the mouse to enter your home. You can repair the openings and gaps with ‘muisstop’ which is a kind of glue, where the mice can’t bite through. If you can’t find that, another option is to stuff the openings and gaps with ‘staalsponzen’ you can find those at almost every supermarket or hardware store.
There are different kind of mousetraps to get rid of mice. You can choose for a clamp or for a trap in which the mouse stays alive. Some people might think that adhesive plates work to. The adhesive plates are strictly forbidden and they are very animal unfriendly. The mouse is stuck to the plate and has a long struggle before it dies.
