Default Keeping the Mice At Bay

With all of the construction and digging going on in TV, I would imagine that it would send the field mice out to find new homes. I guess mice would be attracted by either food and water. So besides removing these attractions, is there anything besides adopting a cat that you could do to discourage them from taking up residence in your home?

I have not seen a mouse in four years . I was told that the pesticides on the lawns is what keeps them away ???????
But about the geckos (little dinosaurs)..they are everywhere and keep the bugs down ...BUT !!! Don't let your dogs eat them , it makes them very sick , they have a toxin in them that attacks the liver,,,,,Little dogs can die very easily.............true story...
I thought about trying one myself but their hard to get into the microwave........
looking for a snack Fumar

Don't know about cats........usually they can eat anything......
HOWEVER ..I will add that last night I spotted a mouse in my den , I quickly trapped him and flushed him away ..I was so proud of being so quick on my feet.....
Today my computer won't work .......

Not to worry. All the mice have probably been run over by dozers by now.

Also,frogs are very toxic to dogs also. A friends Collie ate one and came very close to death! However, if you are a princess, try kissing one! :-*

Don't worry about any mice. There's still enough hawks patrollling the area for anything dumb enough to try to run across the moon-scaped construction areas.
