Our technicians are more than happy to assist you with your rat control needs, but in the meantime, here are a few helpful tips to keep these pests at bay.
Keep Firewood off the Ground
Keep firewood at least 18” off the ground, making it difficult for rodents to access since it is a popular nesting place. Store firewood as far away from your house, whenever possible.
Be Mindful of Food Storage
Keeping all of your countertops clear of any food remnants or residues is an easy way to help prevent rodents from being attracted to your home. Here are more food storage tips:
- Store any pet food the same way you do your own
- Make sure that all of your food items are properly sealed
- Keep an eye out for hard-to-reach places, like underneath large kitchen appliances
Maintain Your Landscaping
An often overlooked tactic to help keep rodents out is maintaining your landscape. Be sure to get leaves and other lawn debris cleaned up as quickly as possible.
Other landscaping techniques to help keep rodents at bay include:
- Removing accumulations of leaves throughout your yard
- Cutting back overgrown vegetation
- Trimming away extending branches that might come near your home
Remove Any Clutter
When decluttering your home, ensure you don’t overlook less common areas like your attic, basement, and garage. Rodents thrive in clutter around your house because it offers them so many different convenient hiding spots.
Install Sweeps Around Entryways
Keep your warm air in and help keep rodents out of your home with brush strips or sweeps. If you have concerns about the installation, there are adhesive strip backings available. Otherwise, let us help you rodent-proof your home for the winter months by calling our technicians at 1st Stryke today.
Seal Off Potential Entry Points
Take the time to seal up any possible entry points in and around your home as one of the most effective ways to keep rodents out of your home. Rats and mice can easily squeeze into any opening larger than ¼” despite their size as full-grown adults.
Our certified technicians at 1st Stryke undergo rigorous training to identify potential entry points to your home in doubt. Some of the common entry points include:
- Window screen tears
- Piping gaps
- Cracks in walls
