How to Prevent Mice From Entering Your Home

Few things elicit a more panicked and frantic response from a homeowner than a mouse scurrying across their floor. That is because mice have the tendency to cause serious damage to residential properties and can be a health hazard to families and pets. To avoid the start of a mouse infestation, here are a few tips to prevent mice from entering your home.

4 Tips for Keeping Your Home Mice-Free

Mice reproduce very quickly if not addressed immediately and can carry a host of diseases and pests such as lice, ticks, and fleas. They can also contaminate food and chew through wiring and other objects leading to hazardous conditions. Fortunately, there are several ways to deter mice from your property.

  1. Properly put away food – Nothing attracts mice like leftover meals or crumbs. It is best to keep a clean space, sealing left over food and cleaning up any messes in your kitchen and dining area.
  2. Tightly seal your trash – Food tossed in the trash can still attract mice and other rodents. Make sure to seal your trash properly and ensure that your bins are cleaned out as often as possible.
  3. Clean out the attic periodically – Attics make for very hospitable breeding grounds for mice, and therefore need to be cleaned out often. Replace any cardboard storage boxes with thicker, plastic bins that can be sealed.
  4. Have your home professionally inspected – If you notice signs that mice have entered your home, have your property inspected by mice removal experts who are trained in the proper methods of removal.
