When the weather gets cold mice will often seek shelter in homes. They like to find a cozy warm spot to make their nest, ideally one that is close to a food source. As they get comfortable in your home for the winter they can cause lots of damage and leave their droppings everywhere. You might hold your breath waiting for warm weather to come so these mice will vacate your property, but don’t hold it too long! Mice do not just pack up and move to summer dwellings when the weather improves. Your home offers them everything they need, so why would they leave? If you find mice, don’t just wait for them to go away on their own. You need to take proactive steps to eliminate these destructive creatures, including calling for professional services.
