2. Make your home less attractive to mice
Second step is to make your home less attractive to rodents. You will need to remove clutter around your house and garage where mice is most likely to hide and make nests. Keep your lawn cut and pull out tall grass and weeds that are near your house. Only use garbage containers with tight fitting lids.
Keep your composter free of food waste except green staff. In addition, install a sheet of heavy metal mesh between the soil and the bottom of the composter. Make sure you do not have leaky taps, sweating pipes, and open drains in your house and on your property. Keep your house clean. Store dry food in containers with lids shut.
