4 Ways to Rodent-Proof your Home

1. Seal:
Rats and Mice can enter your home through the tiniest of gaps. Check all windows, doors, walls, and drains for possible gaps or cracks and seal them with caulk or steel wool. You should also check for any gaps higher up on your property or on your roof and not just at ground level.

2. Dry
As well as seeking food, Rats and mice are also looking for moisture and water sources. Leaks in your bathroom attic, basement, and shed are a vital water supply for pests. Make sure any leaks or water sources are cleaned up as quickly as possible to prevent an infestation.

3. Tidy
Rodents will find many hidden shelters in a cluttered or messy home. Clear away any old newspapers, wood, and regularly empty your garage or sheds to reduce possible hiding places for rats and mice. A clean home is a pest free home.

4. Clear
If you are an avid gardener make sure you clear away organic material. If allowed to accumulate, dead flowers, leaves, twigs and general garden debris make for ideal nests. A good clearance will reduce the possibility of rats and mice living on your property..
