The last thing you want to deal with as a property or homeowner is a rodent infestation. Rats, mice, squirrels and other rodents can bring Lyme disease and other unwanted problems to your family or guests. Guarding your home or business property is imperative for preventing health issues as well as structural damage.
Rodents can chew through drywall, plastic pipes, wood, metal and electrical wiring in order to build a nest within the halls of your home. In addition to destruction of your home’s interior, they can do damage to the exterior by digging up and destroying lawns and gardens.
Here is a look at what you can do when it comes to rodent proofing your home:
Feeding birds is a huge attraction for rodents. The birds tend to drop much of the food onto the ground, just asking for rodents to hang out around your house.
Store dog food or other pet food in airtight containers in your garage. Aromas from the food as well as the enticing smell of garbage will lure rodents into your garage and ultimately move them into the walls of your home or other structure.
You may want to cut back on dense foliage in your yard. While it may look beautiful, it also attracts rodents to an ideal sanctuary where they can hide among the lush landscaping.
Consider regular pest control inspections which can help prevent an infestation from occurring or detect it in the early stages before it becomes a massive and far more costly issue.
Professional rodent proofing
Professional pest control technicians such as the ones you’ll find at BugFreeServices offers one of the best ways to keep rodents away from your home or business; they can even guarantee that they’ll stay away too!
BugFreeServices offers rodent proofing that includes a targeted inspection of your yard to identify what may be causing a rodent problem such as overgrown trees that are touching your home or roof, or piles of wood that are perfect for a rodent’s nest. Proofing your home involves the use of wire mesh and durable materials that virtually seal all of the accessible entry points in the structure that are ¼” or larger in diameter. These entry points are sealed with the latest, high-quality rodent proofing materials. By sealing these holes, all types of rodents will be unable to invade your walls and force them to look elsewhere for an ideal nest-building location.
