Mice infestations in your home can be a very challenging pest control problem. The best way to deal with mice infestation is to limit their pathways through which they invade your home. Below are some simple tips for preventing mice from invading your home:
Close Your Doors
It only takes a few seconds for them to rush into your home through an opened doorway. They are so tiny they don’t need much more than a little crack to slip through. If you are fond of leaving your garage door or house door open, then you should be surprised when mice take up residence in your home. To stop them, ensure that you keep your doors closed at all times, and if you have to leave them open you should install screen doors.
Completely Seal Your Windows
It is also important to keep your windows closed whenever you are not around or open them only if they are screened. Also, inspect and ensure that your windows do not have any open spaces between them and the frame. If there is, seal them with hard cloths or steel wool since mice can tear weak coverings.
Inspect your Foundation Thoroughly
Cracks and holes under your home are easy entry points for mice. Therefore, as a homeowner, inspect your foundation and seal all holes and cracks to eliminate these access points.
However, if you do find that you have mice in your home, it is important that you remove them as soon as possible. The pest control specialists at Stryker Pest Control LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, would be happy to assist you in ridding your home of these unwanted guests.
