Sealing Your Home

Mice are small creatures and can easily squeeze through gaps, they will probably be able to get through an open door or window so always make sure to have these closed if they don’t need to be open (especially at night as this is when mice are most active!). You should also go around the perimeter of your home to check for any cracks in the foundation and also to look for any open vents or pipes. Can mice climb up brick walls and get inside your attic? Yes, they can. Mice are great climbers and can climb brick walls and sliding. Make sure to seal the cracks and put screens over the vents/pipes to prevent mice from entering.

Tidy Up

It’s no surprise that mice are attracted to messy areas, especially if food is involved. So in order to make your home less attractive to mice, you should try to keep your home as tidy as possible and pay extra attention to your kitchen, remember to seal any open food containers and keep storage areas tidy.

Using Deterrents

If your problem still persists after following the above steps, now may be a good time to introduce deterrents into your home. There are numerous ways to deter mice from your property; cats, mouse repellant, mouse traps, and bait boxes are all good ways to keep mice away from your home.
