Keeping Rodents Out
Updated: Nov 14, 2018
The Furry Invasion
Rodent infestations are a serious growing issue in the U.S. Mice can breed up to a dozen offspring every 3 weeks!
Mice and rats are the most common fur-covered pests that invade our homes (often when the weather starts turning cool). They really don’t mean any harm. They’re just looking for food, water and shelter.
They can contaminate food and spread disease such as salmonella and hantavirus. They can even damage wall insulation and electrical wiring, which can increase the risk of fire.
What can you do?
The best defense against these home invaders is a keeping them out by eliminating food sources and access points:
Sweep up food crumbs, wipe up spills, take out the garbage, and don't leave dirty dishes sitting around the house.
Store food, especially grains, pet food and birdseed, in rodent-proof metal or heavy plastic containers.
Put away any uneaten pet food.
Pick up any fruit that has fallen from trees in your yard.
Search out holes (even small ones) around your foundation, eaves and soffits and fill them with steel wool, cover with sheet metal, or fill with caulk, plaster or cement.
