  • Honstly, getting mice really has nothing to do with cleanliness. I am a clean freak, my house is spotless, and we get mice every fall. Mice can get into a hole as small as a dime. Unless you find where they are getting in (a difficult task, let me tell ya... in 4 years we never found it!), they will keep coming!

    That being said, your landlord has a legal obligation to deal with issues like this. If he doesnt do something about it, I would talk to someone who can MAKE him deal with it!

    Good luck!
