As the leaves change colors and cooler weather sets in, rodents like mice and squirrels find their way indoors to escape the chill. Eubank, KY, exterminators Four Seasons Pest Solutions make more rodent control calls in the fall as these pests take up residence in customers’ walls, attics, and basements. Not only do these critters cause pricey damage to homes, but they can also make you sick.
Mice need a hole just the size of a dime to get into your home. To help you avoid visits from these unwanted houseguests, this pest control company has shared four facts and tips you should know:
- They Can Destroy Your Home: Rats and mice can cause foundational and structural damage to your home. These pests gnaw on wires, which can cause an electrical fire. Mice will chew on just about anything, as well as tunnel into insulation and burrow into upholstered furniture for a snug, incognito nest.
- Entry Points Are Easy Access: Once a season, especially now in mid-fall, you should survey your home to check for any vulnerable areas. An exterminator can also do this for you. Check for holes or cracks in popular areas such as your basement, attic, and siding, and inspect your HVAC unit as well.
- Rodents Can Cause Illness: It’s important to get rodent control underway as soon as possible if you suspect you might have an infestation. These pests can spread diseases like Salmonella, Lyme disease, and Hantavirus, which can put you and your family at risk.
- Your Landscape Is at Risk: Mice love to dig up newly planted crops and feed on sprouts and ripe produce. This puts a stop to any harvest and causes unsightly damage.
