As a homeowner, the last thing you want is to discover uninvited guests in your home, especially when those guests are rodents like rats and mice. These pests can cause extensive damage to your property, not to mention they are a health hazard. At Town and Country Pest Solutions, we understand the impact rodent infestations can have on your home or business, which is why we offer effective pest control services to prevent and eliminate rodent populations. In this blog post, we will discuss some prevention measures you can take to keep rodents out of your home and business and how we at Town and Country Pest Solutions can help.
Seal Entry Points
One of the most effective ways to prevent rodents from entering your home or business is to seal all possible entry points. Check the exterior of your property, including around doors, windows, pipes, and vents, and repair any cracks or gaps in walls, foundations, and roofs. If you have a crawl space or basement, ensure that the entry points are secured by installing covers over vents or using door sweeps.
Eliminate Food Sources
Rodents are attracted to sources of food and water, so it is necessary to eliminate access to those sources to stop them from entering your home or business. Avoid leaving food out in the open, store dry goods in airtight containers, and ensure that all garbage cans are tightly sealed. Rodents are also attracted to standing water, so fix any plumbing leaks or dripping faucets in and around your property.
Professional Pest Control Services
If you suspect a rodent problem in your home or business, it is best to hire a professional pest control company like Town and Country Pest Solutions to handle the problem. Our experts are regularly trained on the most up-to-date control methods, and we have access to the latest equipment to exterminate rodents safely and effectively. We also offer preventive services like inspection, sanitation, and exclusion to prevent future infestations.
Take Immediate Action
If you do find rodents in your home or business, it is essential to take immediate action. Rodents can reproduce quickly, so a small problem can quickly grow into a more significant infestation. Call Town and Country Pest Solutions to schedule an inspection and extermination appointment, and follow the recommended steps to prevent re-infestation. Do not attempt to handle a rodent problem on your own, as it can be dangerous and difficult to eliminate entirely.
