Keep Mice Away in Winter

Do you seem to have company every winter in the form of mice or other rodents that want to move in? There are some ways you can make your home a less welcoming place for rodents that might want to winter there. 

First, avoid creating nesting sites by getting rid of stacks of newspapers, cardboard boxes, and firewood. Keep bushes and hedges trimmed and away from your foundation. Mice can squeeze through spaces smaller than a nickel so seal up any potential entrances with sheet metal, steel wool or cement. Store any loose dry food, like pet food, in sealed containers. Keep a clean house -- pick up crumbs and wash dishes right after meals. Also keep the insides of pantries and cabinets clean. These steps should help keep rodents away from your home this winter.

How to Keep Mice Away in Winter

I've got a Simple Solution To That Problem That Not Only works Good But Also Brings More Love Into the House. Get A Cat. Every Since We've Had Our Cat, If He even Thinks He Hears Something That Shouldn't Be In The House He Goes On the Hunt. Everything From Fly's To Moths To Of Course His Favorite Live Toy---Mice. Of course We Usually Get It Before He's Done Playing With It. And He Is Also So Love-able And Affectionate.
