10 Tips to Prevent Mice Inside the Home

It’s a feeling that many homeowners know well – the unease of finding mice or other pests in your home. Whether it be near food stores, behind furniture and appliances where they can enter through tiny cracks; these common creatures require very little space to move inside buildings!

Rodents can make your home a dangerous place. They seek out shelters, like the ones indoors where they’re more likely to cause problems for you and those around them with their dirt-filled claws or sharp teeth – not just an unpleasant infestation! Rodent diseases are also very real concerning both human health (eosinophilia) as well as animal well being; these creatures often serve at vector sites carrying bacteria such salmonella on its body which could contaminant food sources kitchen surfaces equipment etc., potentially deadly Hanta virus among others.

You can proactively prevent and get rid of rodent infestations in your homes by  installing door sweeps on exterior doors and repair damaged screens. You should also screen vents or openings in chimneys so they prevent birds from nesting there as well as seal cracks around the outside of homes where utilities come into contact with soil using caulk/steel wool combo depending upon what is available at time – this will help avoid utility problems down The best thing one can do when preparing for stormy weather comes back around again: stay tuned! Replace any loose mortar and weatherstripping around the foundation of your home, as well as eliminate all moisture sites including leaking pipes or clogged drains that provide a perfect breeding ground for pests.
Inspect items such like boxes grocery bags brought into the house; make sure they are not infested with mold before putting them away! Store firewood at least 20 feet away from where you live so it doesn’t pose an immediate safety hazard but also keep shrubbery trimmed back from your property lines unless we ask otherwise – this will help prevent accidental contact by pets which could cause harm if ingested accidentally while walking on some grasses near treated areas.
