  1. Seal The Deal – Make sure to seal all cracks and holes on the outside of the home, make sure to give special attention to areas where utility pipes enter the home. Rodents often follow electrical or piping into the home to gain access.
  2. Store Firewood – Make sure that all wood or raw materials us stored at least 20 feet from the foundation of your home. If possible, it is also a good idea to have it stored at least 2 feet off the ground too. These factors will all make it inaccessible for pests to get into your woodpile and therefore putting your property at a greater risk.
  3. Fix Loose Mortar and Weather Stripping – Make sure that you have fixed all loose or damaged mortar or weather stripping as these are ways in which rodents can enter your home. If you fix these damaged areas it will make it much harder for pests like rodents to get into the home.
  4. Keep Basements/Attics Clean – this may seem obvious to some people but keeping your basement or attic clean and not cluttered greatly reduces your risk of pests especially rodents. If the area is clean and well-kept you’ll be able to tell if any pets are present, opposed to if its dirty you might not be able to.
  5. Store Food Correctly – This is the one that gets most people into trouble! Make sure that your store your food in safe containers that cannot be broken into. Rodents and other pests chew threw cheap containers and will have a constant food source allowing them to start colonies on your property. So be sure to get good strong containers when storing food or other items around your property.
