Some people keep mice as pets but not all mice live in cages. Mice enter your home uninvited and cause many problems. They’ll seek out and eat your food, cause damage to your floors and walls, and leave droppings everywhere. If you’re experiencing a rodent home invasion, here are 10 ways to get rid of mice now.
1. Keep food in sealed containers
As mice are attracted by food, keeping food in sealed containers will help to prevent mice finding it. While it won’t stop them coming in your home, it will keep your food safe and will ultimately leave mice looking elsewhere for food.
2. Keep firewood away from your home or garage
Food isn’t the only attraction – warmth and shelter are high on the priority list for mice. A pile of wood looks like an ideal shelter for a mouse to move in to, and the closer it is to your buildings, the more likely the mouse (or mice) is to enter your garage or home. Do yourself a favor and keep firewood at least 25 feet from any structure.
