What Advice Can Albert’s Offer For Keeping Out Pests Like Mice And Rats?

Rodents can be quite determined to access the warmth and food inside your home, so it takes quite a bit of work to deter them. They require only a small opening to get inside. Mice only require an opening the size of a dime. Rats only need an opening the size of a quarter. Here are more suggestion for keeping rodents and other pests out of your home:

  • Make a thorough inspection of your house. Keep a sharp eye out for even the smallest openings in your home’s exterior. Seal even the smallest ones.
  • Make an especially careful inspection of your house’s foundation and, if necessary, make repairs.
  • Don’t forget to check for small gaps and openings around pipes and vents, and seal any that you may find.

What Are Some Ways To Avoid Attracting Rodents, Insects And Other Pests?

Unfortunately, it takes very little to attract rodent and insect pests. But here are some steps you can take:

  • Any uncovered food – including pet food – will attract pests. If you have pets, store their food appropriately.
  • Practice basic sanitation and good housekeeping.
  • Remember that your trash is a delight to rodents and insects! Always cover your trash cans to avoid attracting bugs. Choose rodent-proof containers.
  • Do you have fruit or nut trees in your yard? Remember, pests like fallen fruits and nuts, so keep the area under the tree clear.
  • Check your garage, especially if it’s attached to your house, for anything pests might find attractive, such as flower bulbs, grass seed, etc. Make sure such items are stored in appropriate containers.

What Makes Rodents So Harmful?

Throughout history, everybody has dreaded having rodents in their homes – for good reason. First, they pose serious health hazards. Second, rodents’ teeth grow for life, so they have to gnaw on things constantly to wear them down. You do not want them to choose your wiring, drywall or other parts of your home as convenient things to gnaw on.

How Destructive Are Termites?

These pests can do devastating damage to your home. If you haven’t had a termite inspection since you purchased your house some years ago, it’s likely time for one now. Likewise, if you find any signs of an infestation, it’s time to call us for an inspection. We use a 100 percent effective treatment called Termidor, for homes and non-food businesses.
