How to Keep House Mice Away
Finding those tiny holes in your walls, followed with mice droppings in the corners of your house, as well as the distinguishing smell of mouse urine, is disappointing, to say the least. Although people are less reluctant to trap and kill other Jacksonville pests and critters, like rats, mice are a different story. Even though the majority of the people know the dangers and risks that mice carry, they are still reluctant and finding it hard to trap and kill mice. If you want to avoid getting into this situation, you should learn how to make your home Florida mice-proof. Mice will use any spot in your home that has a hole in it, has rotten or cracked, to get inside your house.
Mice will often head to inhabiting human households because they appear to be good sources of food and offer shelter. In many cases, such as storms, floods and other natural disasters, rats will run away from their natural habitats and seek shelter in human homes. In other cases, like construction or tearing down buildings where a large number of Jacksonville mice have nested, they will also be disturbed and look for the second best solution. To get inside a human home, mice are capable of flattening their already tiny bodies to that extent, where they can pass through even the tiniest of gaps. The good examples of this Florida mice getting inside homes using small spaces between windows and window frames, doors and floor, doors and door frames and many other.
Your first line of defense from mice infestation is fencing. Florida mice will often spend days studying a fence and looking for any possible entry spot. If they find even the tiniest hole or gap, they will use it to get inside your front yard. You have to avoid this. You have to make it impossible for a mouse to find any week spots in your fence. Installing a thick and sturdy fence is a way to go if you want to keep Jacksonville mice out. Not only that a well-made, thick fence, is going to protect you against mice, but it is also going to protect your home from other animals getting inside. With fencing, you will also protect yourself from rats, skunks, raccoons, squirrels and other wild animals that may attempt to get inside.
Now, what kind of a fence should you choose? To protect your home from Jacksonville mice, it would be the best if the fence would completely seal the yard, with no holes or gaps inside it. Also, the material that the fence is made of should be sturdy, so that mice couldn’t chew, bite or claw through it. Although Florida mice are not as nearly as skillful at chewing and clawing their way through hard construction materials, they are still able to bite a hole through a material that has soften and rotten. This means that you should consider using a thick mesh wire for your fence. Also, you should inspect your fence frequently and repair any spots that appear damaged as soon as possible.
