 Does Albert’s Have Advice For Keeping Mice And Rats From Getting Inside?

It takes quite a bit of work to keep a determined rodent from getting into a home or business, but it’s worth the effort. Rodents often seek shelter when the weather changes, but they can show up at any time of year. They are drawn to warmth and food. It takes only a small opening to allow them access to your house: A mouse can squeeze through an opening as small as a dime while a rat requires an opening as small as a quarter. But there are ways to make it more difficult for these pests to gain access to your home. Here are our suggestions to keep rodents (and many other pests) out:

  • Inspect your house: Look for any openings in your home’s exterior. Remember what small openings pests require, and seal even the smallest ones.
  • Make a careful inspection of your house’s foundation and make any necessary repairs.
  • Check for gaps around pipes and vents. Make certain pests can’t get in!

What Are Some Ways To Avoid Attracting Pests?

It doesn’t take much to attract rodent and insect pests. Here are some basic things you can do to help prevent an infestation:

  • Uncovered food – including pet food – is an attractant. Never leave it out where it could attract rodents, roaches or other pests.
  • Always practice sanitation and good housekeeping.
  • Your trash is a delight to rodents and insects! Cover your trash cans to avoid attracting bugs. Use containers rodents cannot gnaw through.
  • If you have pets, store their food appropriately.
  • If you have fruit or nut trees, clean up after them during harvest season. Pests like fallen fruits and nuts.
  • Check your garage, especially if it’s attached to your house, for items potentially attractive to pests, such as grass seed or flower bulbs. Place such items in appropriate containers.

Why Are Rodents Especially Harmful?

There are many good reasons people throughout history have sought to keep rodents out of their homes. Rodents’ teeth grow for life, so they gnaw constantly to wear them down. Your wiring, drywall and other parts of your home are convenient things to gnaw on, so you want them out before they can damage your home. An even more important reason to eliminate rodents from your home is the serious health hazard they present.

Why Are Termites So Destructive?
