Why Do You Have Rodents in Your Home?

Rodents are a common house pest, but it doesn't mean you want them in your home. They usually come inside in the fall and winter months looking for warmth and food to help them survive throughout these colder months, but you could have them in your home year-round. These pests can be difficult to get rid of, especially if you don't make the right repairs to your home to prevent them from coming back into your home. If you have a problem with rodents, you are going to need to get to work repairing your home to prevent them from getting inside, then you can start exterminating them. Read on for some helpful information.

Look For The Entrances

Look around for the entrance these pests may be using to get in. They aren't just running in and out of your front door when you open it, they more than likely are getting in through a small hole or crack in your foundation, or in a hole where your foundation meets the sill plate. Lift the siding on your home if you are able to detach it to get a good look at the sill plate and check for damage. You may be surprised to see a lot of damage in this area from years of water or other damage to your home. You will need to make any necessary repairs wherever you end up finding the entrance these rodents have been using. Continue to look for holes and make repairs.

Set Rodent Traps

Set out rodent traps throughout your home to kill the rodents you have in your home. Once you cut off their entrance, you only have the ones that are still in your home, but you need to get rid of them quickly before they make their own exit and entrance again around your home. Set traps with fresh bait all around your home to trap and kill these pests before you end up with bigger problems. Reset the traps, freshening the bait each time, and move them around your home to anywhere you have seen signs of rodents.

If you have a problem with rodents, it's more than likely because they have found easy access to your home and have found food and water easily in your home. To help get rid of these pests, you may want to consider hiring a rodent treatment company to help you find their entrances and to exterminate them quickly.

About Me
Do You Have Insects and Critters in Your Home?

Do you have unwanted varmints in your home? My name’s Jason Blaine. We used to have many unwanted, non-rent paying, living creatures in our home. In the spring and summer, it was mostly insects. Come fall when the weather began to cool off, the larger critters made their way to our attic. We would sit in the house and hear them scurrying around above us. Our cats were the only ones that seemed to like the alien invasions. They got to play with the insects and hunt the rodents. I didn’t find it to be the least bit pleasant. I finally called in a pest control service and am I glad I did! I’m going to share about our pest control maintenance service. I’ve learned a great deal about the chemicals and how they are now safe for humans. I hope to provide you with helpful information.
