What are some tips for preventing rodent infestations in your home?
The first step towards preventing a rat or mice infestation in your home is to keep your house clean and tidy. Remove any piles of clutter or trash from around your home, as this can provide shelter for rodents and make it easier for them to access your property undetected. Maintain floors and other areas of the house clean with warm water and a commercial disinfectant or bleach solution.

Additionally, you should seal up any holes or cracks that may be providing an entryway for rodents. Finally, consider using a commercial rodent repellent or deterrent in areas where you frequently see signs of pests. This can include using mothballs near areas where rodents congregate, displaying strips of aluminum foil around the perimeter of your home, or placing screens over any vents or other areas where rodents may sneak through.
While these tips can help to reduce the risk of infestations, it is always important to be vigilant and contact a pest control professional if you suspect that your home has been invaded by rats, mice, or other rodents. A qualified expert will be able to identify any potential entry points for rodents and recommend the best course of action for preventing a future infestation.
