House Mouse Prevention Tips: How to Keep House Mice Away
To prevent a house from house mice one should reconsider house constructions, sanitation, smells and pets in
the house. Here we discuss some Ventura wildlife removal tips how to avoid having uninvited guests in your home.
Firstly, overlook the construction of the house. Are there any open voids, holes through which mice could get
into the house? Even the smallest hole is an Ventura animal trapping opportunity for mice to get in. There may be some cracks in windows,
doors and basement. Start sealing the holes with a thick material which could not be chewed away. During the change
of the seasons, windows and doors should be closed, because mice start migrating when it is too cold in the wild.
Nowadays, when building a house it is essential to consider its construction. Mice may not ever be able to get into
a well-constructed house.
It is very important to keep good Ventura pest control sanitation in the house. Mice live on a very small amount of food, so the smallest
crumbs and grains may attract them to the house. It is crucial not to keep opened food containers on the floor, in the
pantries or in the basement. It is recommended to store your pet’s food in refrigerator or plastic container and not to
keep it on the floor. Regular vacuuming and cleaning of floors and carpets is a key to a home without mice.
The population of mice will be under control when having a cat as they are major predators of mice. So, getting a cat is
quite a good Ventura exterminator prevention from having these rodents as house guests. Mice are sensitive to some of the scents. Try keeping
mint and bay leaves in the attractive places for mice, such as pantry, closet, near windows and doors. Peppermint oil is
also used to keep house clean from mice. It is also known the mice hate cat‘s urine smell. If it does not bother, put kitty
litter box near the entrance to keep mice away.
Chemicals as naphthalene, which is found in mothballs and ammonia, are also known as substances keeping mice away. However,
if there are children at home they may see mothballs as sweets and they may get poisoned. Ammonia has very unpleasant smell
which may annoy more Ventura animal control people than mice.
In conclusion, to avoid mice in the house, the construction and sanitation should be considered in the first place. Only then a house is protected from mice.
