How rodents get in your house

Rodents can squeeze into holes as small as ½  inch and if it isn’t big enough yet, it will chew it big enough so they can get inside. If they are desperate enough, they can chew through almost anything and in extreme cases, rats have been known to swim up through toilet pipes! Rats are amazing swimmers so a little water does not scare them. Once they are inside your home, they begin to sneakily forage for things to make a nest. Newspaper scraps, fabric, clothing or even cardboard are usual bedding choices for rodents. Rodents need to be close to a water source and are constantly seeking out food. Once rodents get into your kitchen, they contaminate every surface and morsel they touch since they urinate and defecate everywhere they go. The damage they cause and disease they spread is devastating.

Rodent prevention tips

Keeping rodents out of your home, especially as the weather gets colder, can be tricky but if you follow some of these prevention tips, you decrease your chances of dealing with this terrible pest.

  • Seal all crevices, cracks and holes in the exterior of your home.
  • Keep all food inside your home in metal and glass containers (since rodents can chew through plastic).
  • Close garbage cans with tight fitting lids.
  • Tidy inside and outside the home. Less mess means fewer places to hide.
  • Keep pet food and bird seed in tight fitting containers and above ground if possible.
  • Remove compost piles, debris and overgrown foliage from the yard.

Rodents might still lurk around your home regardless, but being vigilant to follow all these tips will help you avoid a massive infestation.

Last but not least, professional rodent control

Bartlett rodent control needs professional help. One of the biggest reasons is that rodents are dangerous. Through their feces and saliva, they transmit deadly diseases and removal of rodents on your own could expose you or your family to these scary pathogens. Pointe Pest Control technicians use great care when removing rodents and treating infestations. We want to keep your family safe and our knowledge of rodents and their habits will assist in this goal. Don’t put your family at risk another day, call us today.

Understanding the Seasons

Weather has a profound effect on pest life cycle. Most pests, rodents and insects breed aggressively during spring and go through periods of hibernation during autumn and winter.

When the weather slowly begins to heat up, pests start to get more active after having stayed dormant over the colder winter months.

  • Birds often start to find mates and start building their nests.
  • Moths which consumer leaves usually become active again.
  • Flies often emerge from their winter hibernation places and start to breed and spread out.
  • Squirrels also spend the winter in hibernation. When spring approaches these creatures start looking for a new home. This is usually the time when they make their way into lofts and other spaces.

Summer is arguably the best season for pests. It is the time when they are in full swing and breed as rapidly as they can. Wasps are one of the most common summer pests followed by flies and rodents. Many a summer picnics and BBQs have been ruined by the ‘home invasion’ of these pests.

  • Wasps build their nesting grounds and lay their eggs during this time. Although the creatures are not directly harmful, they can be very aggressive and territorial at this time of the year, because they’re at their strongest.
  • The number of fleas also multiplies. Since pets spend more time outdoors during summer, they are more likely to bring the pests back indoors with them.
  • Bees are also more active during summer as they go out to gather nectar. Many times, homeowners find a new beehive in their garden and require pest control to take care of it. Because of their sting, bees are more dangerous than some of the other pests and you should call our professional service to get rid of them.
  • Moths and flies usually start to multiply significantly during summer.
  • Ants begin to swarm to find new mates and start new colonies during summer.
  • Cockroaches become very noticeable in the summer, especially in the kitchen and toilets. This is due to the hotter temperatures and stronger smells.
  • Bedbugs are also very active in the summer.

Autumn is the month when things start to get cooler. The number of pests starts to dwindle as they begin to slow down their breeding activities.

  • Wasps start becoming dozy and docile. You may find them buzzing around occasionally as if they are drunk. This is usually the end-time for their life.
  • Spiders in particular are more active at this time of the year.
  • Squirrels will gather their food and start to look for shelter.
  • The second breeding phase for flies begins. These pests remain active during the season.
  • Rodents also become more active. Due to the approaching cold, rodents usually find shelter inside homes in the loft or inside walls.

The coldest months are when pests seek out warmth and shelter. You will find a number of insects especially rodents and lizards make their way inside your home.

  • Spiders come into our homes to escape the web-destroying frosts.
  • Rodents move indoors to escape the cold, increasing infestations.
  • In many cases, homeowners find squirrels nesting in lofts when they go to get their Christmas decorations.
