Once rodents move into your home, they can be challenging to get out. Our team at Turin Pest Control can banish your bugs, but consider these DIY tips to make your home less welcoming to rodents as well.

·        Seal your Food Properly—Make sure all your food in the pantry is sealed up to avoid letting it turn into a rodent buffet. Rodents can eat through food wrappers, but they much prefer easy access food choices. Investing in high-quality air-tight food storage containers would be wise for keeping out all sorts of pests, including rodents, ants, roaches, and more.

·        Stay on Top of the Crumbs—Especially if you have small children, keeping your kitchen floors clean can be a real challenge. Crumbs on your floor will encourage rodents and insects to stick around for a meal. Whether you invest in a robot vacuum or stick to your broom, keep your floors clean to discourage unwelcome dinner guests.

·        Cut Back Vegetation—An overgrown yard will make your yard and home more hospitable for rodents. Stay on top of your weekly mowing to keep the rodents away from the perimeter of your home.

·        Seal up your Home—Rodents can fit through extraordinarily small holes. Make sure that your home is well-sealed. They can find even the smallest holes tucked inside your bathroom cabinets or even behind your oven. Do an inspection of your home and fill up any holes that a rodent might be able to squeeze through.

Being proactive with your rodent control is important to prevent serious damage to your home. From chewing wires to making nests in your cabinets, rodents are naturally destructive and can cause significant damage when they are making themselves at home. Also, rodents can carry diseases into your home. For the safety of your home and family, implement these steps to help you win the fight against the furry invaders!
