How to Kill a House Mouse - House mice are naughty yet smart animals. They are expert in ditching the traps they can run fast and jump up to 15x distance than their own length. They are master thieves who knew how to escape traps and fool humans by hiding into the holes available near. They also choose to hide behind the odd hiding places in the house. If you try to repel the mouse it is hard to do so as they attack a place in a large group. Because of this killing the house mice is a solution.
