Seal mice and rodents out of your home and garage

Excluding mice and rats from even entering your property is the best defense against a rodent infestation. Gaps around your garage door or missing weather stripping under your doors can be an invitation for trouble. Pipes and wires that enter the building or home with openings around them can also be a conduit for entry. Sealing these holes in your garage or other areas that offer entry for mice can be the best thing for you to do. Products like stuf-fit, a copper product that allows you to stuff holes and gaps is a great product for this. Steel wool also works just a good but can rust. Great Stuff, an expandable foam, is a good product to seal around pipes and wires. The old stand by caulk is also excellent. Replace any worn or missing weather stripping around doors. Doing this will help you have a mouse proof season.
