How to keep rodents out of your home during winter
If you want to keep your home rodent-free this winter, you will need to take the following precautions.
- Make sure that all cracks in the foundation or holes in your roof are repaired. This helps not only keep rodents our but also helps keep your home up-to-date on repairs.
- You will also want to make sure that other entrances like doors and windows are completely sealed. You can even get sliders that go under your doors, which prevents rodents from wriggling underneath them. Rodents are geniuses at finding a way in an extremely small space.
- Do not leave food out. Rodents need food to survive just like us. If you make it easy for them to get to your food, that will make your Ann Arbor and Detroit metro home much more appealing. Sealable storage containers, plastic or glass, are the best way to ensure your food stays locked up tight.
- Also, rodents need water to get through the winter. So, you will want to fix any leaks in your home. The most common places for leaks include underneath sinks and in the basement.
What to do if a rodent gets in
Despite all of our best efforts, sometimes a rodent does get into our home. That is not a cause for too much concern. You can still exterminate them with a little help. Often, people will use rodent traps that you can pick up at any grocery store. However, these traps are occasionally not humane and do not always work as efficiently as they should.
