How to Get Rid of Rats and Mice

Rats and mice; a nuisance that is hard to get rid of. Here are some tips on how to get rid of rats and mice in your home.

1. Contact Insight Pest Solutions

The first step you must take if you start noticing a problem with rats or mice is to call a local pest control company. To properly get rid of the problem, it is important to contact professionals since they have products that will permanently get rid of them rather than temporarily. Insight Pest Solutions not only uses eco-friendly products to rid your home of these nasty pests, they also ensure the complete removal of them for as long as we continue to treat you.

2. Maintain a Regular Cleaning Schedule

Rodents come inside your home for a main purpose: food. In order to keep them out, it is important to keep a regular cleaning schedule where you make sure food isn’t left on dishes, food isn’t left in the garbage for too long and crumbs and spills are off the floor or counter tops. This will keep rodents from wanting to stick around.

3. Seal Cracks and Crevices

In order to help the professionals to better do their job, you can help by sealing up cracks and crevices that lead to the exterior before the exterminators get there. They will cover them up themselves if you do not do it, but it’s easier for them to find the cracks if you know where they are coming from and have located them.

4. Get Rid of Bird Feeders

Bird feeders in your front or backyard could actually be attracting the rodents to your home. With time, seeds fall on the ground from the bird feeders which catches the attention of rodents because of the sustenance just laying on your property.
