How to keep MICE out of generators

How to keep MICE out of generators is imperative as MICE will nest and live, and breed inside any generator canopy of generator container.

Generators are warm in the winter, cool in the summer

MICE will damage your investment and can nibble through control cables that will prevent the generator starting in an emergency.

There isn’t the same health aspect, as RATS but the more MICE the greater the risk to health.

Check visually once a week for signs of MICE infestation- droppings etc.

STEP 2

Check for smells. Mouse urine is very pungent. If you can smell urine then MICE are usingyour generator as a home.

Check for holes or marks on cabling and cable installations

Check Fire stop foam for teeth marks and any gaps created by MICE

STEP 4

Install one bait station close to each corner of the generator

STEP 6
