Tidy up your garden
As already touched upon, rodents will look for areas that are undisturbed and that are often messy and unkempt. Part of tidying up your garden means cutting back your shrubs and bushes, getting rid of brambles and sweeping up any fruit or berries that fall into your garden.
Rodents will look for somewhere that also comes with a constant and easy food source, so make sure there aren’t any berries, nuts or fruits (like apples) lying around for rodents to find and consume. If they know there will always be a food source there, they will do their best to stay. If you’ve had a barbecue in recent weeks, then check the area for any food that was dropped and clean that up as well, just to be sure.
