A-1 Bonded Termite, Inc. is here to answer some questions you may have about mouse repellent.  First, when dealing with any type of mouse infestation, make sure you seal up any holes or cracks that lead to the interior of your home. The best repellent is to not attract mice to begin with.  The key to mouse prevention in your home is not about chemicals and traps – It is having a well-sealed property. That will prevent future mice from breaking in. DIY pest prevention tips.

 

Trim back any bushes that touch the exterior. With little to no hiding spaces outside, mice will keep out of your yard.

 

 

Take Away Hiding Spots Outside

Check popular spots around your property where mice may be found.  This should be part of your regular outdoor maintenance routine: Check under piles of sticks, in bushes, within clutter, in garages and backyards.  This is where mice are usually found before entering your home. Signs of mice include droppings, bitemarks, and small nests (much like a bird’s nest on the ground.)  Keeping up with regular preventive control will help keep mice out of your home or business. 

Garages are ideal living places for a happy mouse family. It is best to have pest prevention in and around your garage, particularly if the garage is attached to the home or business.

When mice make their way inside, they are not going to been seen, or even noticed at first. They are nocturnal and frightened when approached by humans.

Clean up

Leave no droppings behind.  Mice multiply quickly and leave large messes behind. Believe it or not, mice prefer to be clean so they will move from nest to nest once it gets overrun with droppings.  They create multiple nests in homes that all need to be addressed. Be sure you have proper gear and cleaning materials when cleaning old leavings that need to be removed.  Old mouse droppings are arguably the most dangerous part of a mouse infestation as the dry particles become airborne and can be ingest/inhaled and cause people many severe health problems.
