mice in the house and no cat

Asked July 26, 2017, 4:50 PM EDT

I usually see 1 or 2 mice a year, but this summer I saw one adult mouse, and then a baby mouse, What should I look for in hiring an exterminator or are there some ways I keep the population down? Thanks Pat

You can control mice by using traps or baits and keeping stored foods in sturdy containers that they cannot chew into. See our web page about mice for additional recommendations on how to control them. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/mice
