It has been said that cleanliness is next to godliness. Well, while that is true, it will also keep mice infestations from happening for the most part.

You need to make sure that your house is clean and that food is disposed of properly. A dirty house is an invitation for rodents to make themselves at home. This also goes for those that hoard things. Make sure that cooked food is always put up, the the trash is closed off and the all food is wiped off of containers. This is extremely important in keeping rodents away from your home. Don’t give them anything to eat!
