However, cleaning up can be a bit, but I think we can all agree that it has to be done. Dishes, cutlery, and other containers need to be washed. Chairs need to be folded, and trash needs to be picked up, but in the middle of all this, the BBQ often gets left out and that can attract a lot of pests like mice. Show how do you prevent these pesky rodents from coming inside your BBQ?

- After you finished putting all the meat and veggies on the grill, it is time for some cleaning up! Make sure all the leftovers are removed from the grill. Mice do not need a lot to get full. This includes the leftovers pieces that might have fallen between the grills as well. After the food is removed, it is time to remove the grease.
- The reason why mice come to the BBQ is that it is accessible. Depending on the size of the grill and the system, you might be far better of to make the trek to the BBQ impossible. If you have an outdoor storage space, store it inside.
Repel, repel, repel
- To make sure that the mice stay out, there are a bunch of ways to do this. There are natural ways by using scents like mint, ammonia, cloves, mothballs, and camphor. Then there are other ways to repel them by using traps and ultra-sonic repellants that can only be heard by the mice. This will cause the mice to stay away at all times. The downside of these methods is that these are not 100% effective and that the efficacy depends on the placement and the execution.
