    There is a poison called just one bite, it, s sold at the feed store. It comes in a hard block with 4 bars, you break it in pieces and put around for the mice to chew on, then they go outside and that, s the end of them.you only need little pieces, I broke it up with a hammer and put it in small plastic sandwich bags and put it around.try the feed store where they sell hay, the farmers use this to keep mice away from the feed for their animals.also steel wool works great to plug holes.

    That's good advice just make sure you put it in a place where your pets ( if you have any) won't get to them. I use to live in wooded area and from time to time you would see a rat outside and I would get freaked out. I was amazed they never got in the house. I still should have been putting down some poison to be extra caution yet I have two dogs and they eat everything so maybe it was just as well that I never put anything down.

    Me and my dad had a massive rat and mice problem. When we poisened them we would have to rip open walls to pull them out because of the stench, it was horrible.

    In turn we decided to just gang up on them, my dad is deathly afraid of rats and mice. Anyways, we got a crap load of rat traps, and put all kind of normal goodies we would eat onto the traps. I could sit there with one trap and collect mice after mice, poor things looked like mickey mouse!

    Sometimes you might have to make a hole in your roof to stuff one up there.

    Mice pose a big problem in our homestead. They have been eating
    stored food and can even damage documents. We had tried poisoning with
    various chemicals but they somehow detect it. I think the best
    solution to get rid of mice is to embed a cyanide tablet or cassava
    root inside a cake and wait for them to eat it. Otherwise, the best
    approach is to maintain clean surroundings and store food in closed
    cabinets with good aeration.

    I don't suggest anyone to use poision to control rats and mice. Use a mouse trap instead. It will not only save you money but is also safe to use. Once you buy a trap, you don't have to spend more money to get rid of mice. However, if you use poison, you will have to buy again and again until you get rid of mice. Furthermore, what if the poison you left for the mice is mistakenly taken by your pets or children?

    Sometimes the only way to stop or kill is to use poison, as they can easily avoid traps, some poisons are pretty effective and efficient.

    Just be sure to put these blocks outdoors. I know someone who had rats in their attic. What happens is the rats or mice eat from the block, go out to find water since they have been poisoned, and die. Well, the rats never made it out of the attic, died, and left a wonderful aroma behind....NOT.

    We used to buy the black powder poison to eradicate the rats outside our home. It is very effective when used with a bait like dried fish or cooked meat. Pour the powder on the bait and place it on a paper plate near the habitat of the rats. But for the mice inside the home, we use the non-toxic pellets. Like the rat poison, we also use a bait so the mice will be quickly eradicated. So far, our home, interior and exterior are free of rodents for several years now.

    Unlike you we have a white power poison that it's relatively the same as the one you described, quite effecting and works very fast.

    I cannot bear the thought of hurting a little mouse by mousetraps or poison. The best thing to do is get a cat and then the mice will smell it and not visit your house. I've never been plagued by mice so perhaps I'm being a bit over dramatic but I'm a huge animal lover and don't like to think of them suffering.

    We have a problem with rats here, and the City Hall is distributing free rat poison to every house. People pay nothing for this poison, they accept it and sign for it but people are not using it and this made the rat's population grow in our city.
    I'm ashamed of this situation and I hope that the local officials will take care of this problem.

    From experience and would advice against using poison of any sort to kill mice or any other pest in the house because of the risks involved in using such. For example, if one happens to have kids, toddlers or pet at home, there is a good chance that such kids or pet might go eat what's not meant for them (the poison) which may result to death if not found out early and handled on time.

    There are better ways of getting ride to mice at home without putting anyone at risk of poisonous exposure. The use of mice/rat gum trap is the best. This trap comes in several shapes, square, rectangular, circle etc. All you need is set such trap at the movement route you are aware those mice or rats use to follow.

    Immediately any of them steps across such trap, even if it is just one of their legs, their body hair, the mice will be stucked in the trap until you come and kill it and remove the dead mice and still set up the trap again for another catch.

    If you don;t want your cats and dogs to eat poison, Make the poison something rodents will like and other pets will hate. Cats and dogs don't like sweet stuff and mice loves sweets and nuts.

    Mix peanut butter and honey with your poison. Cats and dogs hates them while rodents drives them nuts.

    I don't have problems with mice right now because I have three playful cats who loves to roam around the dark corners of the house and they'd easily chase them away. In the past though, they've done a lot of damage to our clothes and food items and we really had to resort to using poison to get rid of them. It's quite dangerous to allow rats to roam the house as they can cause a number of diseases including Weil's disease or leptospirosis which can be fatal.

    There are two common ways to administer poison to rodents. One is by luring them to eat poisonous pellets. Another is to spread tracking powder on their usual path. When they step on the powder and lick on their feet or fur to clean themselves, they'll ingest the poison. If the rodent infestation is severe, you may need professional help to effectively eradicate them.
