1. Block Entry Points
Suppose you notice holes around the interior or exterior of your home. In that case, we recommend calling a trained technician to assess the entry points as proper precautions. Pest technicians will often permanently block (or seal off) these holes with sealant or steel wool. Mice and Rats cannot chew through steel wool without harming themselves, and airflow can still travel through important exhaust ducts.
3. Eliminate Food Source
Like all living things, mice and rats require a food source to avoid starvation. They consume expired food, pet food or rodent-free, and foods that we consider to be delicious. Avoid them feeding off your garbage. We recommend placing lids on top of your garbage cans. Make sure there is no loose garbage near you. Another way to avoid rodents is to store your foods in glass containers with a sealable lid. Doing this will help to ensure that rodents are not getting into your dry foods.
