Often mice find their way through the large garage door into the garage and then into the water heater closet. From there they can enter the attic space where there’s a lot of nice fluffy insulation. This insulation is great for these small mammals to create their nests in. Once they’ve set up shop, the only thing they all need now is food and water. If they can find a way into your home, and your pantry through the walls, then they have everything they need to survive and thrive.
