As soon as the cold weather hits, rodents start looking for warmer places to hide, feed, and breed. Oftentimes they find a way to breach into residential homes. It does not take long for a couple of mice to settle themselves quite comfortably in your home. In other words, the longer you postpone their removal, the harder it will be to get rid of them. So the best way to avoid such problems is to make sure mice don’t enter your home in the first place. There are only three ways to truly eliminate rodents from taking up residence in your home.
- Sealing. The first thing that you need to do is block their entryways. Look for holes and gaps in your home’s exterior that can make it possible for mice to squeeze into your house. Keep in mind that mice can pass through holes smaller than a dime. Seal every hole and gap you find in your home.
- Cleaning. No rodent will hang around if it can’t find a steady source of food. So, removing all sources of food, taking out the trash daily, and boxing up all your food leftovers can make rodents find your home less appealing.
- Trapping. In order to speed up the rodent removal process, consider installing several traps around the home. Make sure you use at least five traps for your kitchen. Place them alongside the wall base. We suggest that you use peanut butter as bait, but any other type of rodent food will do.
