Rodents are pesky animals that are found mostly in residential areas where there are big sources of food. If not controlled, they grow in numbers and become very hard to get rid of. Rodents generally have a lifespan of one year and give birth to around four to seven times within their lifetime. They contaminate stored food supply and carry diseases like E-coli and Leptospirosis. If you suspect the presence of rodents around your property, you must act quickly to protect your property, family and community.
Know The Warning Signs:
Rodent damage happens over time. To prevent disaster, you should look out for the tell-tale signs of rodents in your home. If you hear scratching and gnawing sound during nighttimes, don’t ignore it. Mice and rats are nocturnal and will be active only during night times.
Lay Traps Around Your Property:
Laying traps around your property is one of the simple DIY rodent control solutions. When you explore the market, you will find different types of traps available, but the most common and effective one is the standard snap trap which is widely used in the professional community.
Block All Entry Points:
In order to eliminate a rodent infestation, you must seal off all the entry points into your home. Metal mesh measuring 1/4” x 1/4” can be used to seal off the gaps. This will make gnawing impossible for the rodents. Adding caulking to the mesh will prevent mice from sneaking through the crawl spaces.
Maintain A Clean Attic:
The attic is usually neglected, which is why rodents love to nest there. So, you should allocate considerable time to deep clean your attic on a regular basis. This helps to protect your attic insulation from rodent damage and keep the HVAC of your home running smoothly.
