Effective Ways To Protect Your House From Rodents

Once a rodent enters your house, it makes everything messy. Nobody likes these unexpected guests in their home. And if it is a matter of mice, then you surely need to take action to get rid of it with complete knowledge and preventive measures. If you have already dealt with rats' problems in the past or in your neighborhood, somebody has struggled with rodent infestations, then you can imagine, how unprotected your house is to rodents' nests.

Here we have discussed some of the key ways to prevent rats from getting into your property.

Seal all cracks

Any small holes or cracks, even if it is the size of a quarter are good enough for mouse entrance. While it is essential to look for such openings in your outer walls, it is also vital to not stop there. Who wants to turn their house into a refugee camp for rodents? But mice love to stay in sheds, garages, sunrooms, and closed patios.

A better option to know about rodent presence is to inspect your house with professionals. In Bangalore, rodent control professionals help to find out all those cracks and holes in the walls, foundations, and roofing.

Inspect your insulation

Insulation helps to cover cracks and protect your home, especially in the crawlspaces and attics. But over some time, insulation can deteriorate or become insufficient to block enterprising pests. Support any weak spots in your insulation with foam covering and other strong materials which keep pests away from your home.

Clean up of the house

Cleanliness of the house is much more essential to keep rodents away. Regular mopping, sweeping, and dusting are mandatory to remove any food grains from the kitchen which attract the mouse. Professional deep cleaning helps to keep your entire house and household items neat and hygienic.

Cover the trash can

Rodents love to explore trash, so it is crucial to keep the trash can, covered. There should not be a small opening that will let them open the can and chew food items or hide under it. Keep the trash bins tightly sealed, because their foul smell also attracts several rodents. Regular disposal of trash bins is very much necessary to keep the house rodent-free.

Secure your food

Keep your kitchen cupboard closed, and pantry sealed at all times. Don’t store food items in openings where they can be easily accessed and chewed by rodents. Thus, the safest place to store food is in bins or large containers. Flour, sugar, and other ingredients can be stored in these containers rather than kept in their original bags.

Guard your vents

Vents are designed to enter cool and dry air into your house, especially in the attic and roof. Unfortunately, rodents also consider it as their entry point. So, protect all your open-air vents with screen and sealing so that no other pests can enter your home.

Protect your pipes

If you have an HVAC system in your house and its drainage pipes exit waste water outdoors, make sure those pipes are correctly protected. The best solution is to bury them under gravel so that rats won’t get an easy entry into your house.
