I have a mice in my vending machine !
I visited one of my location 2 days ago and i was surprised why there are still a lot of snacks and chocolate bars inside the vending machine, i was very surprised because this is a monthly location and normally it is empty when visiting this location for the longest time that im servicing it.
I as usual goes through the machine and when i was checking everything,
i noticed that several chips had foil holes and the contents inside were all empty.
I immediately already suspected that this is done by a mice since i had 1 location also in the Vancouver area where this thing happened and the solution was to cover a hole which is about 1 to 2 inches in diameter where the electrical wire goes into the machine.
Normally all the vending machine has the electrical cord going into the machine covered with a rubber grommet
but in some cases when you have been moving and changing machines this rubber grommet is not secured into it’s original position.
I heard that there are locations when they hear that when your machine is contaminated by a mouse they wanted to remove completely as soon as possible and no one will be using it anymore, since it is not a joke when the machine contains some mice droppings and you will get contaminated with disease and the customers are just making sure that everything is good.
