Some of the worst things for a homeowner to see inside their homes are uninvited rodents. Usually, these unwanted creatures include the likes of mice, squirrels, and raccoons. Not only do they leave messes behind, but they also carry over 35 diseases between them — diseases that can be spread to humans through contact with the pests’ saliva or waste. Bringing in an experienced rodent control team in North Hollywood can make all the difference in the health and comfort of your family.
Preventing a Rodent Infestation
There are three things people can do to prevent rodents from moving in and sharing their homes:
- Seal Up the Home – One of the best things to do to prevent rodents from moving into the house is to seal up the entry points. Mice can miraculously squeeze into tiny holes smaller than nickels and come in through gaps and holes. The best way to find entry points is to look behind kitchen appliances; around fireplaces, windows, and doors; and under sinks and furnaces. If the house has an attic or crawl space, sealing all the gaps and holes in those areas will be beneficial. Holes can also exist in vents and drains, so it is important to check those areas as well.
- Vision Pest Control Trapping Program – When rodents have already started to come into the home, it is a good idea to set up traps to help reduce the population. Snap traps are best for catching Rats and mice. Vision Termite & Pest Control uses organic baiting that attracts the rodent to the snap traps. We always strive to find the organic solution to your rodent problem whenever possible.
- Clean Up Surroundings – There are many places around the home that make perfect nesting sources for rodents. To prevent rodents from finding a comfortable place to live within the home, reduce clutter and clean up potential food sources. This includes making sure all dog and cat food is put away. Compost bins and trash cans need to be stored at least 100 feet from the house. If this is not possible, it is important to use metal garbage cans with tight lids or critter-proof bins.
It is best to consider these preventative measures before rodents infest the home. Vision Termite & Pest Control is available to help end the infestation and return the home to humans and friendly four-legged pets.
