Mice can enter a home many different ways because of their ability to squeeze into extremely tight spaces. Some common areas for mice entry include gaps in bricks, holes created when pipes are installed, doors that don’t close tightly and numerous other ways.
There are some man-made gaps called weep vents that are intentionally created by builders to allow air to circulate throughout the home. These weep vents allow moisture to escape through the gaps in the brick just above the home’s foundation. Due to their proximity to the ground they can also be an open door for mice.
It’s truly incredible how small these openings are and how effortlessly these mice find their way into the brick, up the wall and into the house. If you want to know more about how Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control deals with mice humanely, check out our mice services page.
