I don’t recommend this as a long-term solution. But if you can see a mouse in your room and you have your mobile to hand, you could try and play a high-frequency noise to scare them away.
If you do have the opportunity to try this and it works, it’s a good indication that an ultrasonic device will be effective though.
Here’s a YouTube video that plays some high pitch sounds they say are effective at scaring mice. Some of the people in the comments said it really worked, so worth a try!
Is This the Best Way to Scare Mice Away?
Repellent devices and high-frequency noises are not the best way to get rid of rodents, no.
They do work, and they provide a good solution to other insects and pests too. But if you’re dealing with a serious mice infestation problem or want to get rid of every last mouse coming into your home, there are better ways.
If you want to keep it humane and not harm them. Then I suggest looking into home remedies like peppermint oil or humane traps.
If you just want a more definite and permanent solution, then you need to use traps, block any possible entry points into your home, and remove any food sources.
It is possible to scare mice away with noise if that’s the method you want to use. I showed you an ultrasonic device that customers are saying works well, and I’ve had some success with one myself in the past.
If you decide to give it a go, feel free to reach out and let me know how you got on. If you’ve got any tips to share with the community, I’d appreciate it. Thanks.
Oh, and if you’ve heard the old wives tale of soap working as a deterrent. It doesn’t work – check this post for evidence; Do mice eat soap?
I have kept pet mice for a number of years and always had a fascination with these interesting, fun little creatures.
I'm always looking for new and interesting mice related information and will always help other mice owners where possible.
