Having mice in your home is more than an inconvenience - they can be a serious health risk particularly in kitchens or areas where children play. Mice can also do significant damage to your home and furniture by gnawing through wood and plastic. Mice can even cause house fires by chewing through electrical cables.

How to keep mice away

The first line of defence against mice is to proof your home. Mice have soft skeletons and can get through holes the width of a pencil, so it is important to seal any holes to the exterior (for example pipe work for washing machines and dishwashers) and fit bristle strip around doors.

It is important not to attract mice with food – where possible, store food in strong plastic or metal containers. Regularly clean behind fridges, under cookers and cupboards.
