Halloween and Rodents......SCARY!

 

halloween ratAs pumpkins are being carved and the little ones getting dressed up as ghosts, goblins and witches are preparing for a night of tricks or treats while some thing sinister lurks in the shadows...

Sounds like a scene right out of a horror movie...but this isn't a movie. During the fall months rats and mice seek shelter from the cold and wet weather inside our sheds, garages and even our home, usually causing damage to your property. It is very important to take a step in the right direction to combat these little furry monsters.

Make your home a not so easy target!
Rats and Mice can enter your home in several ways. Rodents can halloweeneasily gain access through ventilation grills, sidewalk grates, where plumbing enters the house, vertical wires and tree branches.

 To make enrty into your home a not so easy thing you may want to consider the following:

  • Keep your property free of debris and leaf litter
  • Fill all gaps around plumbing lines that enter your home with caulking, silicon or steel wool.
  • Make sure all external doors have door sweeps properly installed.
  • Garages, cardboard boxes should be replaced with plastic storage tubs and kept tidy.

By doing these few things you could make your home less of a target! For professional pest services contact Clark Pest control, Clark offers free pest evaluations of your home! Call Clark today.
