How to Stop Mice From Entering Your Home

Does the mouse super highway run into your house or business?

Fall is coming and that means mice will be moving indoors soon. They will be searching for shelter, food and warmth. Now that we’ve had a cold snap, mice will begin “packing their bags” and planning for the months ahead. That means that mouse control should be starting to creep into home owners minds. In this video blog, Josh Erdman, owner of Erdye’s Pest Control shows the mouse super highway that exists in most central air conditioned homes and businesses.

In the video, Josh shows us how they handle mouse control by explaining that most mice get into houses by climbing up air conditioning hoses that run into the building. This is the number one way mice get into your house. So of course, the best way to stop mice from entering your home is to seal up those areas.

Why Do Mice Get Such a Bad Rap?

We understand why mice want to find a warm, safe place to spend the cold months. But, the problem is, if it that warm, protected place is your home or business, they can spread disease and cause serious property damage.

According to, rodents invade an estimated 21 million homes in the U.S. every winter, and an infestation can cause more than just a headache for homeowners. It’s a challenge enough staying healthy during the wnter, especially with flus and the common colds. If you add an accumulation of mice droppings that can spread bacteria, contaminate food sources and trigger allergic reactions, you’re increasing the chance of illness.

Mice in your home also pose a significant property risk. They destroy insulation in attics, chew through wallboards, cardboard, wood and even electrical wiring. In fact, rodents cause up to 25 percent of house fires in the U.S. every year.
