Here's To You And A Pest-Free 2023!

Well friends, here we are saying goodbye to 2022 (and the frigid arctic air that descended on us towards the end of last month). We hope you were able to connect with friends and family over the holiday season, watch plenty of football, and eat lots of delicious food.  As we enter into 2023, the EnviroPest team wanted to take a moment to express our thanks and appreciation for our customers and share a few indoor and outdoor rodent prevention tips to help you keep mice and rats out in the coming days and months!

Exterior rodent prevention tips from the local exterminators at EnviroPest

As you’ll see, not all of these pest-proofing tips can be completed in the middle of winter when the ground is frozen and snow is piled up. Consider this list a helpful year-round tool. 

  • Trim back all tree branches and shrubs, etc., so that they do not touch the sides of your home or your roof.
  • Inspect your foundation, walls, roofline, and roof for gaps or cracks, and seal them up using a caulking gun and other material that will withstand rodent teeth. 
  • Replace or repair any damaged screens or doors sweeps.
  • Place crushed rock around the perimeter of your home. 
  • Remove clutter from your yard
  • Eliminate any standing water from your yard and correct the conditions that cause it in the first place. 
  • Store firewood as far from the house as possible and up off the ground.
  • Remove bird feeders and other sources of food from your yard.
  • Harvest fruit trees and gardens promptly. 
  • Keep trash in tightly sealed containers.

Interior rodent prevention tips we think you’ll find helpful 

  • Store food in the refrigerator or in sealed plastic containers with tight-fitting lids.
  • Store holiday decorations in containers that won’t let rodents in.
  • Clean spills, crumbs, and other food up immediately, paying special attention to cleaning in hard-to-reach places such as under the fridge. 
  • Make sure indoor trash cans are equipped with lids and keep them clean.
  • Only put pet food down at meal times. 
  • Eliminate clutter in your attic, basement, and garage.
  • Organize storage closets.
  • Store all items in durable plastic containers that cannot be gnawed through.
  • Keep your home dry by using fans or dehumidifiers to remove moisture.
