House Fly Prevention
Good sanitation will also reduce food and shelter for existing mice and in turn make baits and traps more effective. Pay particular attention to eliminating places where mice can find shelter. If they have few places to rest, hide or build nests. Eliminate all openings through which they can enter a structure. All places where food is stored, should be made mouse-proof. All food should be stored in glass jars, metal canisters or other resealable airtight containers.
