Landscaping Signs Mice are Too Close to Your Home

Most home and business owners notice signs of rodents inside their property. Telltale signs like chew marks or droppings eventually catch the attention of the property owner and they call an exterminator professional to take care of the issue. However, mice and other rodents give other concerning signs long before they take up residence in your home. You just have to know what to look for, and how to take care of it quickly.

The weather is warmer and you are spending more time outside. Take a look around your home, business, or property to see if you notice any of these disturbances that could indicate rodents closing in on your space.

Start with Your Garden

One of the best parts of living in the Midwest is the opportunity to plant flowers, vegetables, and herbs in a backyard garden. Homeowners enjoy the process and mice can often enjoy the results as well. When you are spending time in your garden – flowers, veggies, or otherwise – keep your eyes peeled for signs of rodents. You may be able to catch mice coming and going during the dusk hours, but you can catch signs during the day as well. Look for signs of digging or chewing, as well as for droppings.

Secure Your Compost

Composting is a great way to reduce garbage and make your own fertilizer. However, be sure you are not inadvertently giving rodents in the neighborhood a free snack or shelter. Look for signs of chewing in the structure of your bin that could indicate a rodent presence.

Watch Groundcover

Mice and other rodents love to nuzzle under warm groundcover in the form of plants or mulch. This can invite them to come awfully close to your home, which could lead to an unwelcomed invasion come autumn. Look for signs of burrowing or chewing to indicate a rodent issue.
