How To Get Rid Of Mice With Kitty Litter


Apart from the various ways in which you can defeat a mice infestation in your home, there are ways in which you can either save money or recycle some resources that you probably already have before. That being said, you’re reading this article because you’re wondering how you can use cat litter to get rid of your mice problem in your house. Let us walk you through the entire process.

Mice Prevention Made Simple

For this method, you’re gonna need plastic bowls and trays, gloves, scoops, and well of course the kitty litter. Now a lot of cat litters are intended to reduce the smell of cat excretes but for this process, you’re gonna want to use a cat litter that somehow does the opposite. If it’s possible, we advise you to use cat litter that’s either unscented or something cheap for the effect to be as strong as possible.

Naturally, cats are the primary predators for mice. And way back, cats are the go-to animals when it’s mice that need to be taken care of.

But in our time today, cats are more pampered than humans which is why those days have gone by, although it doesn’t change that their instincts to hunt mice are still there, they are just not that urged to do much anymore nowadays:

  • First, you need to determine if it’s nice what you’re dealing with in your house. These little creatures are great at avoiding detection from humans but you’ll be able to tell if they’ve been in a place by the droppings that they tend to leave near the food that they’re trying to eat, nests, chewed-off housing materials and tiny holes on back of furniture and walls.
  • Look for the mice entry points in your home, and check for spots even on the windows, doors, and heating ventilation. You have to remember they these creatures can slip through very small holes and cracks in walls and other house items so make sure to do this process tediously.
  • Use the gloves to get a scoop of the kitty litter from the cat box. Now, to take great effect, you have to remember that the litter needs to be used by the cat first. As you scoop in the litter, prioritize getting the material from the part in which the cat urinated. Put the litter then on a plastic bowl or pan and place the container where you would usually see the mice pass or go through. Repeat the process for several times to repel the mice effectively. The smell that the cat litter gives off because of the urine will surely keep the mice away as they would think that a cat is waiting for them by the holes they’re gonna try to enter into.
