Cold weather means that animals will be looking for a warm place to hide out until it passes. This makes not only your house, but your garage looks like a 5-star hotel with a vacancy sign in the window. Therefore, since your house is not, in fact, a 5-star hotel for pests, you need to take preventative measures to ensure rodents stay far away from your home!
When it comes to preventing rodents from entering one’s house or garage, there are only a few simple steps you need to take!
- Start off by making sure all cracks and holes in the foundation around your house or garage are sealed off. Mice and rats can squeeze through very small holes; therefore, you must make sure you properly cover and reseal any and all cracks.
- Make sure trash cans are covered and far away from the house.
- Clear clutter inside your garage. This will further discourage mice and eliminate hiding spots.
- Make sure tree branches are not close to your house. Mice are able to scale these and will use these are ways of entering your house or garage from above! During the summer, make sure tree branches are trimmed.
