Winter is a wonderful time of year filled with pretty snow and getting comfy by the fireplace. As you spend more time indoors staying warm, it’s important to remember that mice are also trying to keep warm as well as find a good meal. Your home may offer them exactly what they are looking for, so how can you keep them away?

  1. Examine the exterior of your home for potential entry points. Mice can fit through a hole as small as a pencil. Identify and remedy all vulnerabilities such as gaps in window and door frames, openings around utility lines, and dryer vents without screens. If you would like a professional solution, consider our Wildlife & Rodent Attention Protective System.
  2. Keep all food sources safely stored out of reach. This might seem logical inside your home, but also consider what is in your garage such as pet food and bird seed which should be in sealed containers that can’t be chewed through.
  3. Take action at the first sign of pests in or around your home. If you see feces or hear noises in the wall, don’t wait weeks to do something about it. Call in the pros to diagnose the issue and develop a proper rodent control treatment plan.
