 Mice are a constant threat to storage units. Storage units can attract mice for numerous reasons; if you have any food or other perishables stored in your unit, mice will happily come inside for a free meal. Similarly, if you put crumb-filled furniture in storage without cleaning it first, you may well come back to find it infested with mice. There are some simple steps you can take to reduce the chances of mice infesting your storage unit.

How to keep mice out of storage unit

The most important rule for keeping your storage unit mouse-free is never to use it to store food, even if that food has a very long shelf life. This applies to pet food and other perishable items as well. All of these are pretty much guaranteed to attract a rodent infestation.

Most storage units have garage-style doors that leave relatively large gaps around the edges. Don’t underestimate mice’s abilities to squeeze through seemingly-impossible gaps. Seal off any cracks or gaps you can that mice could conceivably use to gain entry to your unit. Leaving some cedar blocks in the corners of your unit is a good way of deterring mice, moths, and other pests.

Everything that you put into storage clean as thoroughly as possible beforehand. Fabrics should be cleaned and wiped down to remove any food crumbs, insect eggs, and other potential sources of pest problems. Don’t assume that just because it looks clean, it is clean.

If you’re able to check on your stuff now and then while it’s in storage, you should do so. You can spot infestations early and deal with them immediately.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
