How Do Rodents Survive The Winter?

Mice inside home

Winter is coming, and rodents are looking for a warm and cozy place to stay. Unfortunately, that place could be your home. As temperatures drop, rodents like mice and rats can cause serious damage to your property and health. Here are some tips to keep rodents out of your home this winter.

How to Keep Rodents Out Of Your Home This Winter

1. Seal all openings

Rodents can enter your home through small openings, so sealing them up is essential. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal any gaps around doors, windows, and pipes. Make sure to check your foundation and roof for any holes or cracks that rodents can enter through.

2. Keep your home clean

Rodents are attracted to food and garbage, so keeping your home clean is essential. Store all food in airtight containers and clean up any crumbs or spills immediately. Take out the trash regularly, and keep your compost bin away from your home.

3. Remove clutter

Rodents love clutter because it gives them a place to hide. Remove any clutter from your home, including piles of clothes, boxes, and newspapers. Keep your basement, attic, and garage tidy to reduce the chances of rodents making a home there.

4. Use repellents

There are several natural repellents that you can use to keep rodents away. Peppermint oil, for example, is known to repel mice. You can also use mothballs or dryer sheets in areas where rodents are likely to enter.

5. Call a professional

If you've tried all of the above and still have a rodent problem, it's time to call a professional. A pest control expert can identify entry points and provide a customized treatment plan to eliminate rodents from your home.
