Having mice in your home is more than a nuisance, it poses a threat to your health. Mice carry diseases and multiply quickly; so this is one problem you'll want to nip in the bud. Alka Seltzer and peanut butter combine to safely and effectively kill mice. The peanut butter attracts the mouse, while the Alka Seltzer generates a build-up of gas.

  1. 1

    Use the knife to spread a little peanut butter on each Alka Seltzer tablet.

  2. 2

    Set out your Alka Seltzer pieces in areas where you have found mice faeces, and any other suspected points of entry. It is best to do this at night, since mice are nocturnal animals.

  3. 3

    Dispose of any dead mice you find in the days that follow.

  4. 4

    Continue monitoring the situation. Use the Alka Seltzer with peanut butter, until you stop seeing signs of the rodent problem.

Tips and warnings

  • Wherever you find a hole mice can use to enter your home, block it with steel wool.
