Rodent Guides:

Why Are Rodents Attracted To My Home?:

Rodents might be attracted to your home because it is easier for them to obtain food sources. Food sources tend to lead rodents to your home. Other reasons might be that the city or area you live in provide an easy shelter for rats and mice, or because it is warm year round which provides your rodent friend with a nice climate to live in. If you are having problems trying to get rid of rodents in your home it could be because they have had their litter of babies recently, so there is more than one, two or three rodents inside your home. This can cause infestation quickly which results in more damage done inside your home than if you had just one rodent at one time.

How To Prevent Rodents In Your Home:

Depending on what rodents you are dealing with, there are multiple ways to preventing them from entering your home. For mice, close off any holes they may use to enter your home. If it is a pet door you can block the opening using heavy-duty aluminum foil that won’t hurt your pet or yourself when walking by. You can also use steel wool and caulk areas where they might enter into your home. If they are coming in through small cracks try applying some steel wool in those spaces as well. Mice love to chew so these things will help prevent them from entering your home via chewing their way through the barrier of steel wool and aluminum foil. If you have rats, close up all of the same types of entry points to your home to prevent them from entering your home. It is also wise to remove any food sources they may have access to outside of your home. If you live in an area with a lot of rats, you might want to consider getting some cats to help with the rodent problem. When it comes to killing them, there are many options out there including glue traps, snap traps or electronic traps which are all very effective at catching rodents. They are not good for any type of pest control because they are cruel and just plain messy! I highly recommend using humane mouse traps that allow the rodent to live after being caught so they can be released elsewhere away from your home without causing harm or damage.
