There are many things you as a homeowner can do to help prevent the infestation of pests in your home. One of the most basic principles to follow is to seal up any areas where a pest may enter your home from the outside. Pests and rodents do not need much space to gain entry so a good tight seal is important. When temperatures change, such as very cool nights, rodents and other pests will look to your home as a warm and protected environment for themselves.
Inspect the exterior of your home for any current or potential entry points and then take the necessary steps to seal up those areas with things such as steel wool, wire mesh, caulking and wood.
