How to Keep Mice and Other Animals Out of Your Garage

The garage is more than just a designated place to park your car and store tools safely-- it also makes a great work area. However, your garage can be a savory space for mice and other little critters. Garages are somehow easy for little critters to get into and provide warmth for unwelcome guests looking for shelter. So, it’s easy to see why mice and other animals are attracted to garages.

Mice and other animals hanging around your garage is a problem that can get out of hand if you don't take the necessary measures to keep them out of your garage. These furry little nuisances can be a health hazard and chew through the electric wires of your garage door opener, costing you a lot of money in repairs.

In this article, we will walk you through how to keep mice and other animals out of your garage.

  • De-Clutter Your Garage

Mice are attracted to cluttered spaces. If your garage is full of clutter, it will always attract mice and other animals. To keep mice out of your garage, you’ll need to create an unfavorable environment for them. Start with cleaning the floor space in your garage and get rid of everything that doesn’t belong to the garage.  Simply keep things organized by storing items in sealable containers.

  • Use Mice Deterrents

You can use mouse traps, scent repellants, and electronic repellents to keep mice from invading your garage.

  • Get Rid of Cardboard Boxes From Your Garage

Mice are drawn to cardboard boxes because it satisfies their need to gnaw. Besides, cardboard boxes provide a perfect breeding space for mice. Be sure to keep these boxes out of our garage. Other things that usually attract mice which you'll need to remove from your garage, include bags of mulch, uncovered insulation, sacks of grain, leftover food, and pet food.

  • Seal Off Entry Points

Mice with their small and flexible bodies can find their way through narrow spaces. Ensure you seal off holes, drains, cracks, and crevices that lead from your home’s exterior to the garage. It’s also important to fortify your garage door through proper garage door maintenance and keep it closed when possible.

  • Keep A Cat

Not all cats can hunt and kill mice. However, the right cat breed can help you keep mice out of your garage. Some of the cat breeds you’ll want to keep if you’re looking to prevent mice and other animals from getting into your garage include Siamese, Manx, Maine Coon, and Domestic Shorthair. You may also consider keeping rat-hunting dogs like Rat Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier, and Miniature Schnauzer.

We hope these tips help you keep mice and other animals out of your garage.
