Make Your Home More Rodent-Proof

 

Like every other city or town, rodents live in Daytona Beach. That doesn’t mean they have to live in your house, though, because there are several steps you can take to keep them outside.

  • The best rodent prevention measure is denying them entry into your home. A rat can enter through an opening the size of a quarter and a mouse needs even less room to squeeze through. Look for gaps and crevices as small as a quarter of an inch where cables and pipes bring services into your home or around doors and windows. Also check your eaves and vents, which can be covered with wire mesh. Stuff steel wool into smaller holes and patch larger ones.
  • Making the outside of your home less hospitable to rodents can go a long way toward keeping them out. Focus on removing potential nesting places, such as piles of wood or debris or areas that are overgrown with vegetation. It’s difficult for an infestation to take hold when rodents can’t “settle down” and start their families.
  • Another very important way to control rodents is to keep them from getting to food and water. Keep food stored in plastic or metal containers with tightly fitting lids, and regularly clean countertops, cabinets and under appliances. Don’t forget the food you may be providing outdoors for pets or birds—empty and clean outdoor pet bowls and place bird feeders as far as possible from the house.
  • Take away any “bridges” that rodents may use to travel to your house. These include shrubs and tree branches that may make it very easy for them to access your home.
  • Make sure garbage cans both inside and out are kept lidded.

 

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT RATS AND MICE

Professional rodent control is essential—these pests can pose serious threats.
DANGERS

Rats can spread and carry diseases that can be contracted by coming into contact with their feces, saliva, urine, or even their bodies, or by being bitten. They also indirectly pose a danger through insects that have fed on them.

DIET

Mice and rats will eat any type of food they find. Although they don’t eat wiring or wood, they chew on them to keep their teeth sharp or build nests. Chewed wiring in your home or vehicle can lead to a fire.

INFESTATION SIGNS

Even if you don’t see a rat or mouse, you may see their signs: droppings along baseboards, in boxes, or where food is stored or prepared. You may see damage they’ve done to food packaging or hear them moving around.

PREVENTION

Keep rodents away by taking away their access to your food—store food in sealed containers that rodents can’t chew through. You should also find and eliminate their entry points, even those as small as a quarter of an inch.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re in the midst of a rat or mouse infestation, the best rodent control is provided by professional pest control companies that have the people and products to get the job done right. There are plenty of steps you can take, however, to put up a strong defense against future infestations, including: 

  • Blocking their entry points. Rats and mice can fit through the most narrow openings, so inspect your property for tiny cracks or other entry points around all of the pipes and utility lines that come through your walls, attic and crawlspace. You can close up the openings around pipes with metal mesh material or steel wool followed by cement. 
  • Getting rid of the access provided by branches, shrubs or anything else that acts as a bridge to your home’s exterior.
  • If you have outdoor pets, feed them during daylight hours and don’t leave food out for them overnight.
  • Sealing outdoor garbage and trash cans. 
  • Indoors, keep all food in airtight containers, wipe countertops frequently, and get rid of sources of water in your bathroom and kitchen that dripping faucets may provide.

The price of rodent control depends on a number factors, such as how many rodents you have and whether there’s an extensive infestation, the method of rodent extermination used, and which particular type of rodent problem you have. We’ll be glad to come assess your rodent situation, and give you a free, no-obligation estimate for our comprehensive rodent control services.

There are a number of effective strategies for exterminating rodents, such as setting different types of traps, and using bait stations that attract the particular type of rodent you have. Additional rat control services may include a thorough inspection of your property to find the spots where rats or mice are nesting and the openings they are likely using to get indoors. We’ll be glad to tell you about all of our rodent control services—please give us a call at 904-549-6897 or contact us online.

You can certainly reduce a mouse population fairly quickly with traps, but it must be done correctly. If you see a mouse running around your house every now and then, don’t assume you’re seeing the same individual every time. You could have dozens more hiding beneath appliances, in your walls, or elsewhere, so it’s likely you will need more traps than you might think. Mice can also be exterminated with bait stations, but it’s better to have a professional Daytona Beach rodent control expert do that job.

No matter where rats go, they’re looking for the same things: food, water, and shelter. If all three of those things can’t be found outdoors, they won’t hesitate to head indoors.

Even the most well-kept home can provide perfect conditions for rats. They’ll eat almost any kind of food you have and will find it in pet bowls, compost piles, and garbage cans. Even a vegetable garden plot or a bird feeder will draw rats near your home’s structure and they may soon find their way inside.

Many types of rodents are commonly known to reproduce quickly, but mice are especially adept at fast multiplication. For this reason, you should address the problem even if you’ve seen only a single mouse.

Here are just a few facts about how quickly mice reproduce:

  • One female mouse will have dozens of offspring in a single year
  • Gestation lasts only about 21 days
  • A female mouse can mate immediately after giving birth, keeping the cycle going without a break
  • Female offspring will be ready to reproduce in just a month and a half
