Mice are attracted to a lot of the conditions that humans create. We leave food waste out in the open that mice easily find and consume. We also have homes that are warm and sheltered from the elements, that other animals will try to gain access to, especially in the winter. Just because we create these environments though, does not mean the other critters that are drawn to them need to be welcomed in with open arms.
Mice create a lot of different problems for you when they've decided to move into your home. These problems have a tendency to grow quickly too, with the increasing population of the mice, because unfortunately, these little critters have a tendency to multiply quickly. Once you see one, chances are that there are more on the way or at least that there will be soon. If led untreated they will overrun your home in a relatively short span of time, so be sure to call for help the first time that you see one in your home.
There are also other signs that you might have mice in your home however. Scratching, what sounds like a small animal running, or even squeaking coming from your walls, are all signs that mice are living within the structure. It is worth investigating as soon as you notice any of these things in order to make your life easier in the long run.
In order to prevent future mice infestations, you should make sure that all of your food waste is properly sealed and disposed of. Food left out in the open will only attract animals like mice and other pests. Be sure to also stay up-to-date on all the minor repairs with your home. They might seem insignificant at the time but you never know how they can help you out in pest prevention.
A small space in your foundation or exterior wall might seem like it won’t cause any harm, but keep in mind that mice can fit through holes the size of a ballpoint pen. Simply fixing these little things as you notice them can save you a lot of work down the line without you ever realizing it.
