To Prevent Rodent Infestation, Start from the Outside & Work In
Because this winter has been light on precipitation, food and water sources for rodents has become very limited - forcing them to source for sustenance close to your home. All the new development isn't helping, either, because natural habitats are disappearing. A perfect storm for rodent infestation is brewing - and it's best to get ahead of it. The most effective method of rodent elimination starts from the outside, identifying all points of entry. Then the tough work really starts, as rodents like to nest in walls, in vents and in the back of pantries and cabinets. If you see any sign of rodents - tiny droppings, for example - or hear scratching, squeaking or rustling, call an exterminator immediately.
