Animal Control: Winter Check-Up and Rodent Prevention

As the cold days come near, we usually search for warm places and avoid being outside for too long. But, we are not the only ones who do not like cold places- rodents are quite similar to us when it comes to this. Unfortunately for us, they usually find a safe place in our home and make a huge mess. Luckily, there are some things you can do to avoid this scenario from happening. There is a possibility for you to contact professional wild animal control providers – they will check the condition of your home before any rodent moves in and will prevent them from invading your home altogether.

Make sure all the gaps in your home are filled

Possible entry points for rodents are cracks and gaps. They may seem small to you, but they are big enough to invite a rodent in. Make sure you have checked the exterior of your home, especially after storms since it is possible they have created new entrances of which rodents can take the advantage. You can try to do this on your own, but it is a much better solution to call a professional to do this. It can happen that you miss a spot – even one crevice is enough for a rodent. So, it is advisable not to do this by yourself- the technicians at Skedaddle will help you and save time and effort.

Skedaddle uses our exclusive sealant on every rodent job to ensure rodents are locked out.

Things you can do when the inside of your home is in question

There are some ways in which you can deter the rodents. First of all, you should store food in your home in sealable Tupperware, metal or glass containers. By doing this, rodents will not be able to smell the food or come near your home. Also, you should not leave pet food outdoors overnight. You should store it in the garage or in the shed in metal containers instead. In addition to this, it is advisable to repair and fix any water leaks inside your home as soon as possible. If not, rodents will make their way in easily and there is a probability that you will have serious problems.

What can you do when it comes to the outside of your home?

Around your property, there are a number of things you can do to keep rodents out. For example, you should declutter your yard. This means that you should not keep wood piles, vegetation, and storage areas in the open since they can be invaded by pests such as mice, raccoons etc. Therefore, you should make sure everything in your yard is secure. That way, you will make the yard less inviting for curious rodents. In addition to this, you should inspect your entire property on a regular basis. If it happens that you notice some signs which point to some of the pests, contact a company that will remove them in a humane way.
