House mice are around all year long, but they can become more of a problem as it gets colder outside. These rodents typically look for warmer areas to build their nests and spend the winter, which can mean homes and businesses.
Having easy access to food and water sources also makes residential and commercial buildings attractive to these small rodents. You can protect your home or business from house mice with the following tips from our Monmouth County pest control experts.
Eliminate Food and Water Sources
This means keeping kitchens, dining rooms, cafeterias and similar areas as clean as possible. Crumbs and food scraps offer convenient food sources for mice. It’s also important to empty trash cans and keep food stored in airtight containers that house mice can’t get into. Getting rid of water sources means cleaning up spills and fixing leaks in your home or business.
Eliminate Entry Points
House mice are able to get into tiny cracks and crevices in residential and commercial buildings. Closing up these entry points helps reduce your risk of having these pests get into your home or business. Remember to check the foundation of your building for cracks in addition to areas near windows and doors.
