Keep up with Your Landscaping Chores

Neglecting your garden duties and the plants that are growing close to your home is an open invitation for a rodent invasion. Make sure that you remove all debris, as well as any vegetation that may be growing or collecting around your house. These make the ideal hiding spots for mice and rats as they try to find ways into your warm home. It is best to keep your yard trimmings and other garden debris at least 10 to 20 feet away from your home’s foundation.

Prepare Your Home for the Winter Cold

Inspecting your home’s weather-stripping and caulking, as well as other cracks and areas of weakness,  will help you to identify possible entry points. Sealing cracks and openings around windows and doors are essential to creating an invasion-free space. Be sure to check any repairs or replacements that you may have done the previous year to ensure their integrity is still intact.

Rodent-Proof Your Home’s Exterior

A basic yet thorough inspection of your home’s exterior entry points is another necessity. Checking to ensure any plumbing repairs and installations, including any cable wire holes, have been properly sealed. It is very necessary that these be sealed properly, as rodents have been known to crawl up drainage and plumbing pipes to gain entry to your home. Additionally, if you intend to keep any windows or vents open, fit them with a screen to prevent easy entry for any rodent.
