The holiday season is a time for joy, celebration, and spending quality time with loved ones. But it's also a time when unwanted guests may try to invade your home - rodents. These pesky critters are not only a nuisance but can also pose serious health risks. So, how can you protect your home from a holiday rodent infestation? We've got you covered with some helpful tips!
How to Control a Holiday Rodent Infestation
1. Seal Entry Points
Rodents are excellent at finding small openings to squeeze through. Inspect your home for any cracks or gaps in the foundation, walls, doors, and windows. Use caulk or weatherstripping to seal these entry points and prevent rodents from getting inside.
2. Store Food Properly
During the holiday season, we tend to have an abundance of food in our homes. Make sure to store food in airtight containers and keep them off the floor. This will not only deter rodents but also help maintain the freshness of your holiday treats.
3. Keep a Clean Environment
Rodents are attracted to cluttered and dirty spaces where they can easily find hiding spots and food sources. Keep your home clean and tidy by regularly vacuuming, sweeping, and wiping down surfaces. Don't forget about those hard-to-reach areas like behind appliances and under furniture!
4. Remove Outdoor Attractions
Rodents often make their way into homes through outdoor attractions like bird feeders or compost piles. If you have these in your yard, consider relocating them away from your home during the holiday season to minimize the risk of attracting rodents.
5. Call in the Professionals
