Fall is here and so are those pesky rodents! - Clark Pest Control



During the cooler months (October through February), we have the luxury of snuggling up in a blanket or by the fire in our homes and apartments, but, their may be something lurking in our dwellings with us. Mice and rats often take shelter in our homes, causing

damage to bothour health and property.

Rodents enter homes through almost any opening larger than a dime, damaging sheetrock, cardboard, wood and electrical wiring, increasing the risk of fire and exposure to diseases.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare for the fall and winter months:

  • Seal off all voids around pipes coming into your home from the outside
  • Keep branches and other plants cut back from the house
  • Keep your garages and sheds tidy and uncluttered

In the event you do have a rodent problem, contact a qualified pest professional, such as Clark Pest Control, that specializes in exclusion and IPM. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program will involve you and your pest management provider, working together as a partnership.

Here is some more advice that I know of - Aside from catching mice, rats, and rodents once they are in, one way to help raise the chances of catching them is to make it as uncomfortable as possible for them. 
If they are getting a constant meal of crumbs every night and water that is left in a cup in the sink, then why would they go after the bait you are setting for them? Make sure your kitchen and living areas are barren waste lands.

Thank you Justin for adding your 2 cents :) You are very much so right, we need to make create a non-conducive condition for them, letting them know they are not welcome!
