How to prevent Mice

  • Limit hiding places by keeping a clean, tidy uncluttered home
  • Keep food properly sealed preferably in airtight containers.
  • Limit nesting material by keeping clothes and linen sealed in rodent-proof containers and remove unused clutter around your house.
  • Ensure all cracks into your home are properly sealed and vents covered, mice have impressive flexibility and can fit through extremely small gaps, even small gaps under door thresholds.
  • Keep your garden grass short and weeds under control.
  • Ensure bins and composters are properly sealed.
  • Remove water sources such as leaking taps or open drains.
  • Keep woodpiles away from the home and 1 foot off the ground.
  • Mint Plants act as mouse repellant. So try and plant it around your windows and doors to try and deter them. Or you can use peppermint oil instead for the same effect.
  • Get a cat, or let one come into your garden. Cats are natural predators of the mouse and they can go a long way to deterring mice.
  • If you have a pet, don’t let their food sit out all day, as mice will be attracted to the smell of it.
  • Keep overhanging branches cut back from your house as mice can climb trees and use the branches to get onto your roof
  • Ultrasonic sound emitters can create several high frequency noises that cause discomfort to mice but not to humans, cats or dogs.
