There are a few reasons why mice might be coming to your bedroom. The first is that there is a space in your bedroom that is convenient for them to nest, like a hole in the wall or an old drawer that you never use. Mice will sometimes nest in one room, then go looking for food in another, like the kitchen. The second reason why there are mice is because there is food in the bedroom. Snacking, storing, or leaving wrappers in the bedroom will attract mice. The third and least likely reason is that a mouse was cornered in the room and cannot get out.

The first step of the extermination process is to inspect. Examine your room carefully and look for signs of mice. Look where you have spotted mice or heard them scratching. Mice like to nest in quiet, enclosed areas, like wall voids, floor voids, drawers, and motor compartments. Getting an idea of where the nests are will help with the extermination process. If you come across a nest, leave it alone. Next, you should clean up your room. Deep clean the floors and every surface. Remove every possible food source, then get organized and reduce clutter. Mice love messy rooms.

Once you have cleaned and inspected your room, it is time to set traps. You can choose between live traps, snap traps, or electronic traps. Some trap one mouse while others trap multiple mice at once. Glue traps are another option but are not recommended because they are inhumane. Bait the traps you purchased with a tiny amount of peanut butter, jerky, or cheese, then place them in areas of mouse activity. Place traps in and out of the bedroom. Up against the wall is best, because mice like to follow them to get around.
