The most wonderful period of the year just ended few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when winter pests were looming around, searching for food and shelter inside our very own homes too. We may have been so preoccupied with the festive mood so much that we hardly noticed the damage these pests were slowly doing to our homes. Worry not; you can still chase them back to their habitat if you only did these three simple things;
Keep a clean house
Mice and other pests may need small amounts of food to survive. Staving them can be a tall order. In as much as keeping a tidy house won’t solely keep you free from mice infestation, it will definitely make your home less attractive as shelter to these pests. Austin residents are even luckier; Pest Control Austin is always ready to help you out with more tips on how this can be done. Your situation probably is already bad, it doesn’t have to be any worse, just call them.
Seal any opening
Who said pest control is difficult? Another trick to keep mice out is by not letting them in the first place. This can be challenging since mice can squeeze through very small openings- as small as 1/4 inch. It is important you inspect your home possible entry point for these mice and seal them completely. Sometimes you may need the help of professionals to help you out. You can still improvise ways of doing this by sealing these openings with steel wool, caulking, metal or concrete. But I still advice you to call on experienced pest exterminators who will offer more than just precautions.
Setting traps has always been used widely as a pest control technique. It can be an effective way to get rid of the mice. They don’t have to die inside their hiding within your home and later behind unpleasant odours. Here you definitely need the help of an expert, unless you want the traps to catch your kid instead. Pest Control Austin are arguably the best at this. I loved their services so much last time. At least I am pests free. You should try them and say goodbye to mice forever.
