Protecting your investment while providing a pest control program that suits your needs.

Unfortunately, we are in the season of cold weather and all the misery it brings. Gone are the beautiful days of summer weather, sunshine and flip-flops. As a homeowner, you’ve probably already started the process of winterizing your home to become prepared for the gusty winds, cold and maybe even ice or snow.

But, have you taken precautions to prevent rodents from taking up residence in your comfy, warm abode? If not, read on to find out how.

Unwanted Guests

Nobody likes the thought of a rodent scurrying across their kitchen floor, so taking extra steps now to prepare for keeping rodents out of your home is the best solution. A good place to start is to replace worn weather-stripping.

It’s important to repair any soft areas on the windowsills and frames because rats and mice can use these points for entering your home. Also, take care to make sure your screens fit tightly and patch up any tears quickly.

Up on the Rooftop

Many homeowners fail to pay attention to their roof other than to check for loose shingles or spots that may need repair. Did you ever stop to think about bats, raccoons and squirrels?

You can deter these critters from crawling into your attic by closing up any gaps in the eaves and flashing joints. Trimming back trees will also reduce access for squirrels. (more…)

Unfortunately, it is not very difficult for rodents to get into your home and once they’re inside, the problems will start. Here are some facts about rats & mice you may not know, but will help you understand how to better guard against them. (more…)
