Rodent control in Houston consists of taking preventative measures and, if necessary, pest eradication. With this post we will touch on simple steps you can take to help prevent rodents from entering your home. Keeping pests out of your home means ensuring there are barriers to entry.
Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel, so be sure to seal any visible openings or cracks along the exterior or your house. Carefully look near windows and doors – as foundation settling can be significant in Houston, gaps will often appear along these areas. Be sure to also look for and seal any openings inside your home: look around your baseboards, behind kitchen cabinets and appliances, closets and other areas rodents may gain entry.
