It is often hard to resist using your garage space as storage overflow, but creating chaotic piles—especially along walls or in corners—lays the right conditions for mice and other rodents to move right in. Even if you're not the type to keep odds and ends where you park your car, keep in mind that useful seasonal items such as outdoor furniture cushions, patio umbrellas, or pool toys can also create an inviting home for pests.

A Sitting Car

Now days, many people are working from home and have slowed their social activity do to the pandemic. Some two car families may only be using one car the majority of the time. Even if this means you're saving a ton of money on gas, leaving your vehicle just sitting in your garage could be allowing mice to turn your ride into their residence.

If you realize your vehicle is staying put more often these days, parking it in a well-lit area would be a great idea.

Pet Food

As a pet owner, it is your responsibility to keep your furry or feathered friends well-fed. Unfortunately, if your garage doubles as a dining room for your four-legged friends or as a storage area for your birdfeeder supply, you could unintentionally be setting up a buffet for mice and other rodents, too.
