Mouse -- Control

By The Old House Web
Field mice will attack trees and shrubs during the winter, using the wood as a food source. Fruit trees are frequently damaged.

To prevent mice damage, encircle the trunk of the tree with chicken wire fencing at least three feet high. Leave an inch space between the fencing and trunk to prevent mice from gnawing through the wire to the trunk.
