Customers are now calling me more and more often about a problem with mice in the home, in particular the kitchen.
To ensure you keep this problem to a minimum, then ensure all food debris is cleared up and nothing is left to entice them into your home. Dog bowls moved, food packets put into plastic containers and food raised to higher locations are just some ways to help prevent a mouse infestation.,/p>
Check under kitchen unit and under the work tops for split foodstuffs, as these places are out of view and often missed.
Get some DIY done by checking for holes, cracks and crevices as likely entey points for the rodent. Fill these gaps with a wire wool as a tempory measure, but get a professional in to ensure the job is done correctly.
