No one wants to find a mouse in their house. These small rodents can bring a headache to any homeowner. They bring insects like fleas, ticks, and lice into your home. They can cause damage to insulation and wiring, causing unsafe living conditions. They can also contaminate food and water sources within your home and cause health problems in you and your family members. These rodents adapt easily and multiply quickly. Finding one mouse can mean that there is a whole family of mice living within your walls. Save yourself the frustration of finding mice in your home by trying to prevent them from entering your home in the first place.

Here are three helpful tips to try to keep mice out:

  1. Seal up your Home: Take time to look around the exterior of your home. Notice any cracks, holes, or gaps in the walls, doors, windows, and vents. Seal up any hole, gap, or crack that you find. This will help keep mice out.
  2. Seal up your Food: Make sure that all food is in sealed containers that do not allow easy access for chewing rodents. Also, make sure that the water is sealed and any leaks are fixed. Trying to keep mice from easy access to food and water will deter them from taking up residence in your home.
  3. Pest Control: Use a regular pest control service to help you eliminate any current rodent infestations and keep them away for good. They can help find entryways you might not see and help you seal up moisture and food you might not think of.

Mice are sneaky rodents, quick to infest any building to find shelter from the elements and an easy access point to food and water. Keep your home sealed up and safe from rodents year-round with these simple tips. If you still end up finding a mouse in your house, call a professional pest exterminator before it becomes a full infestation. A professional pest exterminator will be able to fully assess your pest problem, create a solution and work with you to prevent any further infestations.

Keep your home and family safe and mouse-free for good.
