Fall is the start of rodent season, Orkin explained. To prevent rodents from entering your home this year, Orkin has offered the following tips:
Inspect both inside and outside the home for rodent droppings, burrows and rub marks along baseboards and walls. The more quickly rodents are detected, the better.
Look for possible entry points outside the home and seal cracks and holes if any are found. Think, “where would YOU hide or enter if you were a rodent?” It’ll be hidden, dark, probably warm, and difficult to reach!
Install weather strips around entryways, especially under doors, to help block rodents from sneaking inside.
Store food properly by keeping it sealed tightly in rodent-proof containers like plastic bins or metal canisters. Otherwise, rodents may smell food and break into weaker containers.
Clean up crumbs and spills as soon as they happen to avoid leaving food residue or sugary substances that can attract rodents.
Cut back trees and bushes to at least three feet away from homes to avoid giving rodents a “jumping off” point to access the gutters, roof or other hidden openings.
