Rodents in the home can cause many problems. They can damage your deck, attic, or basement; they can chew through wires, timber, pipes, and bricks. Structural damage can be severe. Rodents also pose a health risk; they carry diseases and parasites that humans and family pets can catch. While these animals are small, they pose a big problem to homeowners.
As a homeowner, you can make your home more rodent-repellent by keeping food well sealed and routinely removing the garbage. Remove crumbs from counters, and keep floors clean and free of spills. Homeowners can also seal up holes, hide or remove nesting materials, and clean recyclables. But if rodents keep coming back, it may be time to call for removal.
At Critter Control, we use a host of ways to repel rodents. We can assess a home and search for animal exclusion points. We can also work out a plan to seal up those points. The most common exclusion points in and around your home are:
- Plumbing vents
- Roof and fascia spaces
- Roof vents
- Oven and bathroom exhaust vents
- Roof/soffit intersection
- Holes in siding
- Porch and deck
- Trees and landscaping
Sealing chimneys with chimney caps and screens can prevent animals from entering or nesting in them. Adding heavy, secure vents to any airflow exit point of the house and sealing holes can prevent rodents from entering.
If you need rodent repellent after seeing signs of them in your home, call us at 469.805.6267 or fill out a Contact Us form. We will work with you to formulate a plan for removal.
