During this time of year, the mice are on the prowl for a warm, dry place to nest for the winter. A great way to keep the mice out and your belongings in, is to store items in strong, plastic containers

In your garage, basement, or crawl space, you can store items including: clothing, holiday decorations, bird seed, etc, in a durable plastic container. Personally, I use the Rubbermaid brand. I have two containers in my garage that keep my sunflower seeds, corn, and other bird seeds away from the mice. The covered, plastic trashcans also work great for storage.

Depending on where you live, it may be beneficial to keep your items in this type of container year round.
