Northwest Exterminating specializes in the exclusion, removal, and control of wildlife nuisances.
Marietta, GA-With colder weather soon approaching, rodents are on the prowl for somewhere warm to settle into. Your home offers warmth, water, food and shelter, and if you’re not cautious unwanted guests are sure to arrive.
Rodents can affect your property, contaminate food, and spread harmful ailments to you and your family. Additionally, they can bring in other critters like lice, fleas and ticks which can add to the problem because they carry harmful infections that can be passed on to humans.
“Where there are people there will always be rodents. This is the time to take action and keep them out of our homes. The cost of the damage outweighs the cost of keeping these critters out. From chewed wires to damaging HV/AC components, the effects could be crippling to a home and the home owner’s budget”, said Matthew Bowley, a Wildlife Specialist for Northwest Exterminating.
When it comes to dealing with rodents, the best defense is to rodent-proof your home to prevent them from entering. Below are a few tips to help avoid rodents from entering your property this fall and winter:
- Clean your crawl space
- Seal all entry points
- Properly maintain landscaping
- Keep garage door closed
- Keep pet food in sealed container
