How To Get Rid Of Rodents Near You?

The best way to get rid of rodents is NOT to run to your local, big box store and pick up piles of traps, baits, and other DIY rodent control solutions. DIY rodent control can not only be dangerous due to the improper placement of baits and traps or improper usage of control products but is also typically ineffective. 

To eliminate rodents and keep them from returning, you must have a deep understanding of rodent behavior and know how, where, and why they enter homes and other buildings. To completely eliminate a rodent infestation from your home, the best option is to contact a rodent control professional. A professional will provide accurate identification and inspection services as well as treatment solutions and follow-ups. They will get to the root of the rodent infestation, completely eliminate them, and prevent their return.

How Do Rodents Get In Your Home?

Rodents can find their way into homes and other buildings while foraging for food, water, and shelter. They can squeeze their way in through holes found along the roof line, at roof intersections, or even down through the chimney. Rodents can also shimmy through spaces found in the foundation, underneath exterior doors, or spaces found around windows. 

Torn window or door screens, spaces found around utilities, and gaps around air-conditioners also provide perfect entry points for rodents as well. once indoors, they are typically found living in attics, basements, inside wall voids, behind large appliances, and inside or behind storage boxes. 

Preventing Rodents

Rodents are very common household pests. The following tips can help to prevent problems with rodents inside your South Carolina home:

  • Inspect the exterior of your home and seal any openings found in the exterior of your home no matter how small they may be; a mouse can squeeze their way inside through a space the size of a dime.

  • Trim back tree limbs, shrubs and bushes back away from the exterior of your home.

  • Make sure that all outdoor trash cans have tight-fitting lids on them.

  • Place garden areas, wood piles, and compost piles a distance away from the exterior of your home.

  • Pick-up pet food between feedings.

  • Inside, make sure to keep all food either in the refrigerator or in air-tight containers with locking lids.

  • Keep the clutter throughout your home to a minimum.
