Before you know it, the weather will be cooling off and fall will be here. During this time, mice start to look for warm places to spend the fall and winter. Use the following NJ mouse control tips to keep these pests out of your home.

• Double check doors and windows. These areas offer the easiest ways for mice to get into your home. Keep in mind that these rodents are able to squeeze through tiny cracks and make their way inside walls. Look around door and window frames for any gaps or cracks, and use caulk or weatherstripping to seal them up.

• Maintain a tidy garden. If you have a garden that’s close to your home’s exterior, get rid of weeds and keep plants, shrubs, and bushes trimmed to eliminate hiding places for mice. These pests can dart into your home quickly from these hiding places when you open the door.

• Seal up exterior cracks. Check around your home’s exterior for cracks and any other small openings that mice can use to get inside. Sealing will not only keep mice from getting in, this will also keep your home warmer during the winter months.
