Home Maintenance Checklist: Look out for Mice Nests

To prepare for the winter months, it helps to have a maintenance checklist. Breathe easy through the new year, knowing that you don’t have damages from forgotten home maintenance. One important task to remember is to check for mice nests.

Where to Check for Mice Nests

As the temperatures drop, mice look for warm environments to nest. They love the warm compartments of engines and air-conditioning units. If it’s been a while since you started up a vehicle or any other piece of equipment, it never hurts to do a quick check for mice before you start it. You can avoid your vehicle overheating due to the nests. The sooner you spot a nest, the less likely you are to have wire damage from the rodents.
