      Rodents are some of the most common pests that invade homes and workplaces. Rats and mice are not only annoying but can also pose health risks to humans and animals alike. Rodents are known to carry diseases, and their droppings and urine can contaminate surfaces and food, leading to illnesses. Moreover, rodents can cause extensive damage to buildings, electrical wiring, and insulation, leading to costly repairs. Therefore, it is crucial to take measures to keep rats and mice out of your home. In this blog, we’ll provide you with some practical tips on how to control rodent infestations.

      Keep Your Home Clean

      Rodents thrive in dirty and cluttered environments. Keeping your home clean and free from clutter can go a long way in preventing rodent infestations. Sweep or vacuum your floors regularly, and dispose of trash in tightly sealed bins. Store food in airtight containers and keep pet food in sealed containers.

      Seal Entry Points

      Rodents can enter your home through small openings, gaps, or cracks in walls, doors, and windows. Inspect your home for possible entry points and seal them with steel wool or wire mesh. Install door sweeps and weather stripping to prevent rodents from entering through doors and windows.

      Keep Your Garden Tidy

      Rats and mice can hide and breed in overgrown bushes, piles of leaves, and other debris in your garden. Keep your garden tidy by trimming bushes, removing fallen leaves, and clearing debris. Additionally, keep bird feeders away from your home, as birdseed can attract rodents.

      Fix Leaks and Moisture Issues

      Rodents need water to survive, so fixing any leaks or moisture issues in your home can help prevent infestations. Fix leaking pipes and faucets and ensure that your home is adequately ventilated to prevent moisture buildup.

      Use Traps and Baits

      Traps and baits can be an effective way to control rodent infestations. Snap traps and glue traps can capture rats and mice, while bait stations can poison rodents. However, it is essential to use these products safely and correctly to avoid harming children, pets, or non-target animals.

      Seek Professional Help

      If you have a severe rodent infestation or have tried to control the problem with little success, it may be time to seek professional help. Pest control experts, like those at Pest Control Southside, have the knowledge and experience to identify and eliminate rodent infestations safely and effectively. They can also provide preventative measures to keep rodents from returning.
