While good sanitation seldom will completely control mice, poor sanitation is sure to attract the mice and allow to thrive in greater numbers. Pay particular attention to eliminating places where mice can find shelter. If mice have fewer places to hide, rest, build nests and rear young ones, mice can’t survive in large numbers.
