Block All Entry Points

The first step in mouse proofing your home is to block all entry points that mice can use to get into your house. This includes inspecting for any cracks or holes in your walls, windows, and doors. You can fill these cracks and holes with caulk or steel wool.

Install Door sweeps

Another way to block mice from entering your home is installing door sweeps on your exterior doors. Door sweeps are a piece of metal or rubber that fits along the door’s bottom and seal it shut.

Keep Your Home Clean

Mice like to live in dirty environments, so keeping your home clean will help discourage them from living there. Make sure to sweep and vacuum on a regular basis, as well as take out the trash on a daily.

Remove Food Sources

Mice can eat just about anything. Make sure you don’t leave food out and keep your pantry doors tightly shut at all times so the mice cannot get into them.

Seal Garbage Bin

If you have garbage bins outside, make sure to seal the lids with a bungee cord or some other type of closure. This will prevent mice from getting into the garbage and eating your trash!

Use Holistic Repellents

There are many pest repellent options available that will help drive away mice from your home. You can use holistic remedies like peppermint oil, cayenne pepper, cloves spray, and others around potential areas where they might enter your house. It’s also essential to clean these areas with the disinfectant cleaner to keep rodents at bay!

Don’t Forget About Your Yard!

Another way to mouse-proof your home is by looking outside for ways they could be getting inside. Patch up any holes near pipes or wires coming into your house, and make sure to trim all branches or bushes that are close to the roof.

Use Mousetraps

If all else fails, you can use mousetraps to catch the mice in your home. Make sure to place them in areas where you have seen evidence of mouse activity.
