The other place is a garage. Rats have a fairly easy time sneaking around the garage door. That means you have to be extra vigilant with the small gap that connects the garage door with your home. Do not get any small gaps there. Tip: Pay attention to the wall that separates the garage from the house.

4. Chimney

For mice, the chimney in the house looks like a hollow tree that is perfect for use in making nests. This is not a good thing. To prevent mice from entering the chimney you can install a chimney lid made of nets, or it can be with a metal lid to make it safer.

5. Plumbing

Mice use your pipe as a hidden entrance to the house. Take the time to check the pipes. If there is a space between the pipe that directly sides to the house, seal it with steel wool and then coat steel wool with concrete mortar.
