Mouse Prevention

Gap around door

The best defense is a good offense and the same applies to mouse prevention. Gaps around doors, pipes, electrical wires, vents and other structural penetrations are the reasons why mice get inside. It is best practice to seal up these gaps to prevent initial entry. This includes replacing garage door seals and weatherstripping around windows and doors. It’s not always easy to identify exactly how a rodent is getting inside your home. It might not even be possible in some cases but the first place to start is with obvious points of entry and go from there. Part of our rodent services is to inspect and identify these. We can also put together a quote to seal them up for you. Rodents create all sorts of problems once inside so be sure to prevent their entry where ever possible.
