Having a rodent problem in your home can quickly become a very serious health risk. Not only do rats, mice, and other rodents create a mess, they also can carry disease. Thankfully, Earthwise Pest Management is here to help in Sacramento and the surrounding region! Our eco-friendly rodent pest control services can have your home pest-free quickly. In the meantime, here are four ways that you can pest-proof your home to keep rodents out and keep them from coming back.
Seal Up Entry Points
First, make sure your house is sealed tight. Use a high-quality caulk to seal up any holes that could be entry points for rodents. Pay special attention to windows and exterior doors as these are often the spots where pests sneak in first! Remember: if you see a spot where bugs could sneak into your home, it’s likely that rodents can as well!
Keep Your Home Clean
Second, keep your house clean. This is especially important in the kitchen and pantry where food is often stored. Make sure to sweep and mop regularly, and store food in airtight containers. If there’s no food for rodents to eat, they’ll be less likely to try and make themselves at home in your house!
Eliminate Rodent Hot-Spots
Third, rodent-proof your house by getting rid of things that rodents will use to their advantage. If you have any wood piles or lumber on the property, make sure they’re at least six feet from the home and elevated off the ground so rodents can’t tunnel under them! Rodents also love to live in sheds and garages so be sure to keep these areas clean and free of clutter.
