How to Prevent Mice: Expert Strategies from Eradix

Mice infestations can be more than just a nuisance; they pose significant health risks and can cause considerable damage to your property. At Eradix, we specialize in not just eradicating mice but preventing them from entering your homes and businesses in the first place. Here’s our expert guide on how to keep these unwanted guests at bay, using effective, humane, and preventive measures.

Understanding Mouse Behavior

Mice are opportunistic creatures, constantly on the lookout for food, water, and shelter. Recognizing the signs of mice, such as droppings, gnaw marks, and nesting materials, is the first step in prevention. Mice can squeeze through spaces as small as a dime, making any cracks, holes, or gaps potential entry points to your property.

Seal Entry Points

The most effective way to prevent mice is to deny them entry. Conduct a thorough inspection of your property’s exterior, looking for any openings. Pay special attention to areas where utilities and pipes enter your home. Seal these gaps with steel wool, caulking, or metal flashing. Remember, a mouse only needs a tiny gap to gain entry, so no hole is too small to ignore.

Eliminate Attractants

Mice enter homes in search of food and shelter. To make your property less appealing, consider the following:

  • Store food in airtight containers and avoid leaving pet food out overnight.
  • Dispose of garbage regularly in sealed bins.
  • Keep your kitchen and dining areas clean, free from crumbs and spills.
  • Manage outdoor vegetation and keep gardens tidy to reduce shelter options for mice.

Professional Mouse Proofing

For comprehensive protection, professional mouse proofing is your best bet. Eradix provides expert services, including:

  • A detailed property assessment identifying potential risk areas.
  • Professional sealing of entry points with durable materials.
