10 Easy Tips to Terminate Indoor Insect Invasions

Turn Up the Heat on Mice

Here's a secret Tom might wish he'd known years ago to help him corner Jerry. You can make your home a little too hot and spicy for mice by filling a watering can with 2 gallons of water and mixing in 1 cup mild dishwashing liquid (the kind that doesn't contain antibacterial agents) and 2 tablespoons of hot sauce (the hotter, the better). Sprinkle the solution around the perimeter of your home, especially around doorways; mix more solution as needed. This spicy fix will keep mice from getting in. It's probably best Tom didn't know this, because what would he have done all day without Jerry around to chase?
