Don’t forget to protect from the outside in. What does that mean?
Take a walk around your yard. Keep firewood stored at least 20 feet away from your home and five feet off the ground.
Keep your shrubbery cut back and off your wood pile. Anything you carry from outside to inside your home should be examined.
Don’t provide a hotel for uninvited guests. Did you know rodents can make storage boxes cozy homes? Keep boxes off the floor. Mice can climb and jump, so keep that in mind when you have open containers in your home.
Don’t be a diner for them. Take out the trash as soon as possible to reduce their chances of food supply. Stinky garbage is appealing to mice, keep your containers air tight.
