How to Prevent Rodent Infestation?

Sealing Entry Points: Inspect your property for any openings or gaps in walls, foundations, roofs, and doors where rodents can enter. Seal these entry points with materials like caulk, steel wool, or weather stripping.

Landscaping and Yard Maintenance: Trim overhanging tree branches and cut back vegetation near your home. Rodents often use branches and plants as pathways to access your roof or attic.

Outdoor Food Sources: Do not leave bird feeders or pet food outdoors overnight, as they can attract rodents. Clean up any spilled birdseed promptly.

Rodent-Resistant Construction: If building or renovating, consider using rodent-resistant building materials and techniques to prevent rodent entry.
