What can you do to prevent rodents and other insects from coming to your property?
Rinse containers before disposing of them to remove all remnants of food and odor. This can help eliminate attracting wildlife to your trash. Keep trash can lids closed tightly so that animals cannot get inside of them.
Where are these bugs and rodents coming from? I keep a clean house.
Insects and rodents come into the home to escape the harsh elements outdoor. Like us they seek shelter from the heat and cold. They love the moisture and are always looking for a dark place.
What are some things I can do?
- Tighten up leaky faucets
- Seal gaps in fixtures
- Create a barrier around your living space
- Check and install weather stripping around your doors
