Can mice get in through upstairs windows? Are you concerned about mice getting into your bedroom at night?
If you have issues with mice getting into your home one of the first things you need to do is figure out how they’re getting in and seal off these entry points.
It’s a little easier said than done most the time as mice can, and will find holes so small you’ve barely noticed them and squeeze in.
It is possible for mice to get in through upstairs windows. But there are a few things you can do to put a stop to this if it’s worrying you.
I recommend the following:
- Check all around the frame of your window for any gaps, no matter how small. Fill the gaps with something mice can’t chew through, like cement.
- Close your window overnight. If it’s too hot try getting a fan is my best advice.
- Clear any clutter on the ground below your window that might be attracting mice.
- Use some of the scents that repel mice an extra line of defense outside your window.
Can Mice Climb Brick Walls?
You’re probably thinking you’re safe because your window is high up, right?
This comes as a surprise to most people, but – yes mice can climb walls.
They have really sharp claws, use their tails to balance, and can easily manage their own body weight.
Mice are able to scale almost any rough surface. It’s not that common to see mice climbing walls as they’ll typically only do it when they know where they’re going.
But once they know a path to an open window that leads into a home and a source of food, they’ll be scaling your walls and climbing through your window on a regular basis unless you put a stop to it.
If you have some moss, vines, or other plant life on your walls then it’s even easier for mice to climb, and will give them somewhere to hide too. Something to keep in mind.
