There are a number of things you could be doing that attract mice — even if you’re unaware of it. If you want to avoid a mice infestation, think twice about the following:

Mice Love Your Food

Rodents need to eat just like us — except, they’re not as picky when it comes to food. To prevent them from snacking on your leftovers, make sure to clean areas where food is prepped, cooked, and consumed.

Take Out the Trash!

Leftover scraps and crumbs that make it into the trash, while not so delectable to us, provide a spread of desirable goodies to furry house guests. If you’re not so keen on rationing residual leftovers, take your trash out — far, far away. If you’ve accumulated quite a few trash bags throughout the week, don’t let them linger around your house until trash day. Make sure to place trash bags in bins and keep them as far away from your living space as possible.  

An Open Hole is an Open Door

Believe it or not, mice are expert climbers, acrobats, and contortionists, and will use these abilities to fit into tight spaces. Holes and cracks that are ¼ to ½ inch in diameter are not even a challenge for mice. Repair any noticeable holes and cracks throughout your house to barricade potential entry points.
