We have a never ending mouse problem in my house. We keep all dog food and treats stored in containers. For years, we have been using these
, which claim to be rodent proof. And they've worked fine... until today, when I noticed that a mouse had chewed a hole in the door. Does anyone know of any guaranteed rodent proof containers? It doesn't have to be specifically for dog food, but it to be big enough to hold bags of food (my dad buys 50lb bags for his dog). They only thing I can think of is metal garbage cans, but I don't think we could fit those in the laundry room. The bins we have now worked well because they are stackable, so we have three stacked up and they fit fine. But obviously I don't want to get the same kind, because I don't want mice chewing on my dog's treats. (Out of all the bins, the mouse chewed into the one that holds Sable's vegan food. We apparently have a vegan mouse!)
So, basically I need something that is:
Can hold up to 50 lbs of food
But doesn't take up tons of space/can be stacked
I'm wary of plastic containers now, because the ones we have seemed so sturdy, but the mouse still got through!
Anyone have any recommendations?
