do mothballs keep mice away?
no they do not.
the best way to get rid of mice is to be rediciously clean. don't leave piles of clothes laying around where they can hide. don't leave food out where they can get it. Feed your pets small meals twice a day so the mice aren't getting to their food.
get a lot of traps
Nope, but don't use the sticky mouse traps becasue they are creul. Get ones that snap and break their neck so they don't have to suffer.
I keep mothballs in stuff that I have stored in our shed...I have not had any mouse damage since I started using them...
get a cat. The mice can smell the cat, and they will not come in the house.
