New Season, New Mouse Problems: How to Keep Pests Away This Summer

Summer is a time for fun and relaxation. Everyone loves heading outdoors to take in the sun and engage in outside hobbies. But while you’re having fun outdoors, mice and other pests are enjoying the season just as much – and may be trying to get into your home to do so. That’s why you need to know the best ways to keep pests out during the sunny months.

Why Are Mice an Issue in Summer Months?

Mice can get into your home at any time of year, but some homeowners see more of them in summer. The warmth gives mice the chance to look for areas to socialize, nest, breed, and feed. Many people have outdoor parties and barbeques that also bring in the mice who want a taste of what you’re consuming. All these things combined lead to a need to find ways to keep them out of your home.

How to Keep Mice Out of Your Home

During summer, be especially vigilant about rodents and other pests who might be searching for a fast meal. If you have meals or parties on your patio or deck, don’t leave the food sitting for long periods. Clean up spills and crumbs quickly and remove dirty silverware, cups, and plates as soon as you can. Regularly cleaning your outdoor cooking areas is also important to prevent pests.

However, this isn’t the only thing you can do to keep the pests away. Other areas of the property might draw them in with scrumptious foods. For instance, if you have a vegetable garden or fruit trees, it’s important to pick the produce as soon as it’s ripe. Don’t leave rotting veggies or fruit outside to bring in animals. 

Go out and trim foliage and bushes that could make for hiding spots for mice and more. If you usually store your pet food outside, that’s something else to avoid. It’s also a good idea to keep your trash in secure, solid trash cans that rats and mice can’t gnaw on to get inside.
