Rodents can be a huge problem for homeowners in Santa Clarita. They can enter your home through tiny cracks and holes, and before you know it, you've got an infestation on your hands. Excel Pest Management will discuss how to prevent them from entering your home, including how to get rid of rodents by stopping them at the source. We'll also talk about the benefits of professional pest control in Santa Clarita. Keep reading to learn more.
Top Rodent Entry Points
One of the best ways to prevent small rodents and big rodents alike from entering your home is to seal up any potential entry points. Here are some of the most common places that rodents can enter:
- Gaps around doors and windows
- Holes in walls
- Vents and chimneys
- Cracks in the foundation
If you suspect that rodents are already inside your home, it's important to act quickly. All rodents reproduce quickly and can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time. Not to mention, they can also carry diseases.
What To Do If You Spot An Entry Point
Once you've identified an entry point, it's time to take action. If you see an entry point and think you may already have rodents inside your home, it's important to call a professional like Excel Pest Management right away. You will then want to seal any entry points to stop more rodents from entering.
Sealing these openings will help to keep rodents out, but it's also important to take other precautions. For example, you should remove any food sources that might attract them. This includes garbage, pet food, and birdseed. You should also keep your yard clean and free of debris, which can provide shelter for backyard rodents.
How To Patch A Rodent Entry Point
Trying to stop a rodent problem at the source can seem daunting, but fortunately, you can help by taking action to patch up their entry points to your home. If you see an entry point, the method you use to seal it will depend on its location:
- For cracks or gaps in doors and windows, seal them up with caulk or weatherstripping.
- For vents or chimneys, you'll need to install screens over them.
- For cracks in your foundation, you'll need to have them repaired. This is usually a job for a professional.
By sealing up entry points and removing food sources, you can make your home less attractive to all kinds of rodents. If you're not sure how to seal an entry point, or if you don't have the right materials, you can always call a professional.
