Mice and people have coexisted on planet earth for centuries. Unfortunately, due to the conflict between the nature of mice and the areas established by humans, the coexistence hasn’t always been a harmonious one. For humans, mice have a long history of association with diseases and property damage. This is why they are considered the most unfavourable wildlife to have in the home environment. When mice intrusion fears trigger the need for help with wildlife prevention, Bowmanville residents can turn to the experts.
Preventing Mice Intrusion
Since mice are so difficult to evict, it is best that you keep them away. One of the main ways to do this is to prevent them from accessing food in your homes. You can do this by using glass or metal containers to secure food as these are challenging for mice to breach. The items stored inside these mice proof containers should include human and pet foods. Additionally, you should avoid leaving uneaten pet food lying around (especially overnight) as mice will come to feast on it.
Keeping the home clean (especially the kitchen area) will also help to keep mice at bay. Try to clean up kitchen grease and all spills promptly and tackle the hard to reach crevices around the stove and other appliances.
Another way to keep mice at bay is to maintain your building. If you get frequent home inspections done, you will be able to find potential entry points such as cracks and holes and rotting wood that mice can chew through easily. You should also check for leaking pipes as water damage makes your building vulnerable to mice entry. Ensure that you repair these problems promptly if you want to deny mice the opportunity to enter your home.
If you love to encourage birds to frequent your outdoor space, your hobby may be inviting mice. This is because mice will be attracted by the bird seeds that are in the bird feeders or those that may have been spilled onto the ground. You may need to consider whether your bird hosting hobby is worth the mice related consequences and make a sacrifice by abandoning this pastime.
