What Keeps Mice Away in the Fall & Winter in Washington Township, NJ? Block Entry Points & More

As we start to feel a significant shift in the weather, there are going to be pests of all shapes and sizes that are trying to find a warm place to settle in for the cooler months. Among those pests, rodents will be at the top of the list. It is important that you do everything in your power to keep mice and rats out of your home because if you don’t, you will end up with a mess on your hands and a health risk to your loved ones. Ross Environmental Solutions is here to talk about what you can do as a homeowner to make sure that mice do not make a home inside your house this fall.

Block Common Entry Points of Rodents

The first and foremost thing that you should do is block any entrances that a rodent could squeeze through into your home. Give your home a thorough inspection and remember that a mouse can squeeze through a hole the size of a dime while a rat only needs a hole the size of a quarter to get into your home. You should look for any foundation cracks, cracks around doors as well as cracks around any of your windows. This can be done easily with the help of some spray foam to fill in the cracks.

Store Pet Food Properly to Protect from Mice

The best way to keep rodents out of your pet’s food is to make sure it is stored in a sealed container. They can eat their way through any bagged or boxed pet food. They find your pet’s food just as delicious as your pet does. If you aren’t storing your pet food properly, it is going to be something that attracts rodents to the space.

Keep Garage Door Closed to Keep Mice Out

It can be tempting to leave your garage door open when you are going to be coming and going throughout the day. However, when there is a gigantic opening like that into your garage, you are more than likely going to see rodents sneak their way into the space. They will find your garage much more comfortable than they will the haystack outside. Close your garage door as soon as you come and go from your home to avoid rodent activity.

Store Food in Plastic Storage Containers

Just like you need to store your pet’s food properly, you should store any food in your pantry well too. Rodents can squeeze into your pantry and help themselves anytime they get the chance. Plastic containers with a tight fitting lid is always the best way to store your pantry and dry foods.

Rodent Control

If you have seen evidence there is rodent activity in your home already, you shouldn’t hesitate to call on the experts at Ross Environmental Solutions to help you get rid of rodents before they do damage to your home. Just the nests they build alone can be a problem let alone the health risks they pose. Call us today!
