Simple Ways to Prevent Mice Invasions

Who wants to deal with a mouse infestation? It is certainly nobody that we know. But sometimes these things happen with little warning and there is nothing you can do about it. All that’s left is to bring in the exterminators and let them go to work. However, there are a number of ways to lower the chances of a rodent invasion. Just a few common-sense practices can help keep your property pest-free.

Through Exterior Property Inspections

All it takes a little time and effort to visually inspect the outside of your home and property every few months. If you see any openings, gaps, cracks, or anything even the diameter of a pencil, you need to seal it. It doesn’t take much space at all for a mouse to twist and bend its way through to the other side.

Practicing Cleanliness and Proper Food Disposal

Rodents are drawn to an area where there are food, beverage, and waste particles present. For people who don’t clean up well after cooking or eating, this creates a problem. Another example is when trash can lids aren’t secured correctly on the cans themselves. This not only attracts mice but rats, raccoons, opossums, and many other vermin. Making sure that you keep your kitchen and food storage areas clean is critical in discouraging mice.

Get a Cat

If you aren’t opposed to the idea of a pet, adding a feline to your family is a great rodent deterrent. In addition to providing you company and companionship, you also have a natural-born predator on the prowl.

Have Seasonal/Regular Pest Inspections

One final way to prevent pest invasions is to schedule regular inspections every so often. Once a year is good but twice a year is better. For people in more rural areas, at the change of every season might be advisable.

No time is ever a good time for an invasion of mice. During the holidays, it is especially inconvenient. Although it may be a little late to prevent one of these situations in your home, it is certainly not too late to fix it. Simply call the pros at Mice Mob Exterminators.
