Keep Rodents Away Everyday
September 3, 2015
Pesky rodents can get into your home and cause a lot of trouble for you and your family. They can cause health problems like asthma and allergies, and spread bacteria through their droppings, urine, and saliva. Rodents can also cause damage to your home. They chew through wires which can cause a fire and into insulation to make nests which can lead to higher energy costs. They can also breed quickly and before you know it you have a full infestation in your home. This is when you will need to call a professional pest control company to help you remove these pests.
Here are some tips to keep rodents out of your home and prevent an infestation before it starts.
Check for cracks and crevices: Be sure to check around your home and make sure that it is sealed up tight. Check eves, attics, chimneys, basements, crawl spaces and siding. Rodents tend to be small and can fit into very small holes or gaps in foundations and siding. Any hole larger than ¼’’ is like a super highway to rodents!
Reduce Moisture: You also must reduce any moisture in your home. Rodents are looking for moisture to help them survive and thrive and will not stick around if they can’t find a drink.
Keep Food Sources Secure: Make sure that all food sources are sealed in air tight containers. This can be anything from dog food to cereal. Keep all food sealed up to keep the rodents out.
Rodents are looking for three things when they enter your home - warm shelter, food and water. If they are able to find these things and gain easy access to them, then they are more likely to stay.
