Identify and Block the Entry Points:

The first step in preventing rodents from invading your home is to seal all the entry points they use to get in.

  • Inspect the exterior of your house and look for gaps, holes, cracks, and openings that mice and rats can exploit.
  • Pay special attention to the areas around pipes, vents, cables, and wires.
  • Use a caulking gun to close any gaps and install mesh screens or metal flashing over the vents and openings.

Keep Your Home Clean and Organized:

Rodents are attracted to clutter, food debris, and garbage that provide them with food and shelter.

  • Keep your home clean and organized to discourage them from coming in.
  • Sweep and mop your floors, wipe your countertops, and store your food in airtight containers.
  • Dispose of your garbage in sealed bins and avoid leaving any crumbs or spills behind.

Use Traps and Baits:

If you already have some mice or rats in your home, use traps and baits to remove them.

  • There are various types of traps, such as snap traps, glue traps, and live traps, that can capture or kill rodents.
  • You can also use baits, which are placed inside traps or bait stations, to lure rodents into eating them. However, be careful when using baits around pets and children. Always read and follow the instructions on the labels.
