Rodent Removal in Florida
Colder weather brings out pests that we have not seen during the warmer months like rodents (mice and rats), which are all active during the winter and rodent removal in Florida is needed. Since rodents are warm blooded mammals they are tend to seek shelter in warm dry homes and as outdoor temperatures drop they may also be looking for food in a warm place with the intention of giving birth. For this reason, early rodent removal, before matters get worse, is important.
Tips to Them Out
Rodents can enter structures by crawling along wiring, fence stops, and tree branches that touch the home. Seal any openings larger than 1/4 inch. Utility pipes entering buildings should be sealed tightly with metal or concrete. Do these things to keep your home secure and you should not need rodent removal in Florida:
• Keep doors and garages closed, as well as any other doors that allowed entry to the house.
• Put food away, sealed in plastic containers and clean up any spilled food that might draw a rodents’s attention.
• Remove structures that a mouse could live in. This includes trash, tall grass and wood piles. If you have a fireplace, store your firewood at least 12 inches off the ground.
• Set traps around areas that mice are likely to run through these can include cupboards, attics and closets. Check the traps on a regular basis and remove dead mice as quickly as possible to avoid germs and odors.
