As the temperatures begin to drop with the season, mice, rats, and rodents will be looking for warm places to stay. Whether you have just bought a new home and you are settling into homeownership or you are looking for ways to maintain your long-term home value, pest control is important but there's a concern you might be joined by four-legged pests, like rats, mice, and other rodents who may want to set up household in your new home, too. While you may be fine with an invited overnight guest or two, you draw the line when it comes to unannounced creatures of the night. Consider these tips to prevent rodents from moving into your home.
Mice control could be as simple as setting traps if you catch on to the freeloaders early enough. If you don’t and end up with a large infestation, you may need a professional to come out and eradicate them for you. Mice not only make a mess and present health issues, but they may also chew on the wiring in your home, which then causes a fire hazard.
