With the winter season approaching quickly, it’s a good idea to start thinking about things you can do to keep mice out of your property or office building. Remember, they can be pretty tricky, but if you learn more about how they behave, you can keep them outside where they belong.
The first thing you should do is take a walk around the perimeter of your property or office building. Look for any small cracks in the foundation. Mice can fit through a very small opening, and if you find any, you should seal them up with foam insulation to keep these critters out.
Seeds are very tempting for mice, and they make an excellent meal. If you have a bird feeder near your properties, consider relocating it to keep mice from being attracted to the dropped seeds.
Pet food bowls are another easy way for mice to find food, and many people keep bowls outside to feed their pets when they’re not indoors. Spilled food is naturally going to happen, so keep a close eye on the bowls and clean up any messes.
Although you might not be able to completely prevent mice from coming inside for the winter, by following these tips, you have a much better chance. However, a mouse infestation is not something to be taken lightly, especially since these pests can multiply quickly. If you spot them inside, contact us right away for an inspection.
