In addition to excellent pest control services, we also provide trapping and exclusion services for rodents in your home. How to keep rodents away from your home can tricky, but believe it or not your landscaping can play a role. Rodents like to get in cracks in the exterior walls, doors, garage and of course the roof. Once they are inside, they can cause some major damage. Mice, Squirrels, Racoon and Opossum all can destroy an attic. From using your attic as a large litter box to chewing through electrical wire, the cost to repair and replace can add up quickly.
Plants that Keep Rodents Away
When you are planning out your landscaping or hiring a landscape company to come and install new plants in your flower beds, consider some plants that are anti-rodent. For example to keep mice away you may consider any type of mint, amaryllis, sweet pea, lavender, daffodils, wood hyacinth (or squill), grape hyacinth, alliums, catnip, camphor plant, elderberry, euphorbias, and wormwood. There are of course a list of plants for other pests like mosquitoes, but here we’re simply taking in to account rodents.
Of course if you do have mice or other rodents, we can help. From bait boxes to trapping, we are experts at clearing a home of one rodent or a full infestation.
Keeping Your Lawn Maintained
Keeping a tidy yard can help prevent mice and other rodents from seeking a living space in your yard. A junky yard or lawn one that is not maintained properly can have many places for mice and other rodents to seek refuge and build a nest. To prevent mice and other rodents on your property:
1. Keep you lawn mowed and trimmed
2. Clean up any compost piles
3. Clean out your gardens of any waste
4. Relocate woodpiles to further away from the home
5. Secure trash containers
Taking care of your property and planting a few plants can help keep your home rodent free.
