What Can You Do to Prevent Mice for the Winter?

Let’s be honest here, nobody wants to deal with a pest infestation at any time during the year, especially not in the winter. They get so burrowed in and it becomes even more difficult to get them removed. And since winter is quickly approaching, mice are going to be looking for a new place to stay warm and safe during the cold season. You will want to take every precaution necessary to make sure that this doesn’t include your home.

Seal Cracks and Holes

Sealing up everything is the first step to mouse-proofing your home for the winter. The best way to make sure that you get every, single spot taken care of that a mouse could enter in is to have a professional inspection performed on your property. That way, even the tiniest of entrances that you might think is impossible for a mouse to get through will still get closed. You would be surprised to learn the manipulation techniques that mice can do to their bodies to squeeze into the smallest of crevices.

Have a Predator as a Pet

If you have cats in your home or outdoors, they will always act as a major deterrent to a mouse invasion. Natural predators always do a great job making a property unwelcoming to those under them in the food chain. Even if you have just been thinking about adopting or rescuing one, but couldn’t decide on the right time, why not now? It would be a great way to finally get a pet while also giving mice another reason to stay away.

Proper Waste Disposal

One of the most important things to discouraging mice from checking into your home for the holidays is to make sure that there are no enticing food sources around. This means not only keeping a clean kitchen and dining area. It also requires you to make sure that your garbage cans have their lids secured on them properly so mice or other critters can’t crawl inside and enjoy a buffet.

You don’t want mice moving in and ruining your winter holiday season! Get the rodent specialists from Mice Mob Exterminatorson the job immediately.
