How to keep rodents out in winter

It is essential to keep rodents (think mice, rats, squirrels, and chipmunks) out of your home at all times. These pests can ruin food, chew on wiring, and spread disease. And, when the weather in Waldorf turns colder, rodents tend to look to our homes for warmth.

If you want to keep rodents out of your home this winter, take the following precautions.

  1. Seal off entrances to your home. This will mean cleaning all leaves out of your gutters. You should also seal any cracks in your foundation, windows, or doors. If you have gaps in your roof, those should also be sealed. You may also consider adding a brush strip to the bottom of your exterior doors, which keeps rodents from wiggling their way into your home.
  2. Keep clutter picked up on the outside and inside of your home. Rodents prefer to hide. So, if you remove prime hiding locations like piles of leaves, debris, or newspapers, then they will not think that your home looks that appealing.
  3. Contact Barefoot Pest Control. We have a number of rodent control options that will help you keep these annoying and destructive pests out of your home this winter.

Bugs are even harder to keep out than rodents, but if you follow these steps, you will well on your way to making sure your Waldorf home is bug-free this winter.
