Are you having problems with mice this season? Well, we can definitely help you! Mice survive the winter by moving in with their human neighbors. While they may find this a desirable circumstance, you probably don't. When rodent-proofing your home you need to keep in mind that mice can fit through very small spaces. If their head can fit, then so can the rest of their body. There are three steps to take to keep mice from making your home their own.
The first step is exclusion. You will need to do a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of your home. Any holes you find will need to be filled so as to get rid of rats in Sydney. Mice can fit through a hole the size of a dime and their curiosity has them climbing through just about every hole that they can find.

Anything a half dollar size or smaller you should fill. We use a copper mesh material called Stuff-It because mice can't chew through it and it doesn't rust. Anything larger you should patch. Keep in mind that mice can chew through anything softer than their teeth as you are selecting the materials to patch and fill your holes.
The last step is setting mouse traps throughout your home in inconspicuous places that they may be. If you find places that they frequent you will know to set traps there. You can lure them to the traps with bacon slices. Mice forage only a short distance from their nest, usually ten to twenty-five feet. They also run adjacent to walls and other edges so keep that in mind when placing your traps.
