Have you ever had mice in your attic or basement that you’re worried will eventually enter your home? Take the right precautions, and continue reading to discover how to avoid mice entering your house.
Where do Mice Enter From?
Mice have the ability to enter homes through cracks, holes, and other openings in walls, floors and foundations. Homeowners typically won’t be able to recognize a mouse hole until after the signs of an infestation occur. Since they have a unique body shape, they’re capable of squeezing their body through holes that may not even be visibly large enough. If drainage pipes are not properly secured, they can enter homes through these means. This can occur through a sink drain or even bathtub drain.
How to be Proactive
Now that the weather is getting cooler, the chances of an infestation begin in the autumn season. That is due to the rodents attempting to shelter in warmth, fighting the dropping temperatures outdoors. In order to keep mice from entering your home, be sure that every opening is sealed with metal or cement. These openings can be cracks or holes, regardless of their size. Every door and window must be closed properly, without leaving any space for unwanted intruders. Another tip, store your food in glass or metal containers with tight lids. This will keep any crumbs away and untraceable. Lastly, dispose of all food waste as soon as possible, and keep your home clean.
