Preparing for Fall: Rodents

With Fall approaching fast, and your home will begin to smell like a classy hotel, this will undoubtedly attract rodents to your location if you are not careful. Therefore, you must make sure to seal your home off to unwanted guests.

Ensure Rodents Stay Out

Rodents can become a severe issue if you do not take preventative measures or seek professional assistance. They are known to chew through electrical wire, damage insulation, and cause general property damage. Giego has a great blog post regarding this same topic!

    • Make sure food is stored and sealed.
      • Make sure all food is cleaned and stored correctly; this includes pet food. Clean dirty dishes after use and ensure the kitchen is free of sticky residue or foods.
    • Fixed holes and cracks
      • Any gaps in your house must be taken care of and sealed off. Make sure holes in the house are repaired, including holes in the screen doors and windows. Simple maintenance can go a long way in making sure your home remains pest-free.
    • Install Brush Strips on Your Doors
      • Adding brush strips to your doors can ensure that rodents cannot crawl underneath. This small step will prevent rodents from entering your house, but it will also save you money this winter by keeping heat within the home.
    • Landscaping
      • Trimming trees and any branches that are close to the house can help prevent rodents from crawling onto your roof. Remove overgrown bushes to deter rodents from lurking and hiding.
