PRLog - Sep. 24, 2008 - NORCROSS, Ga. -- As winter approaches, rodents start looking for warm places to build their nests, often inside homes. The Pest Control Store recommends several ways to keep rodents out of your home.
The first step is to clean and seal up the home. Trash and debris should be removed from inside and outside the house. Pile lumber away from the house. Any food or feed should be stored in rodent-proof containers, such as steel trash cans.
Mice can enter a house through openings as small as a quarter-inch in diameter, Holes this size and larger can be covered with Stuf-fit Copper Mesh Exclusion Material available from the website. Holes where wires come into the house also should be checked.
The next step is to trap rodents already indoors. Traps should be placed close to walls, in dark places or behind objects where mice usually are seen. The Pest Control Store recommends Tin Cat® Repeating Live Catch Mouse Traps, Ketch-All® Multiple Catch Mousetraps, Mouse Glue Board Traps, Trapper® Snap Trap as well as standard economy wooden traps all available at http://www.thepestcontrolstore.com.
Once rodents are caught, the final step is to disinfect the area. Wear rubber gloves when spraying the traps with a disinfectant, then roll up the trap inside the piece of newspaper, double-bag and place it in the trash.
