With cooler temperatures finally making their way down to Texas, we have already seen an increase in rodent calls. One of the main components of our rodent control programs is performing exclusion. Exclusion means we block off all the holes around your home that rodents are, or could be using to get inside. We wanted to write a short post about how rodents actually get inside your house at places other than the most obvious ones, like the garage. Rats and mice need only the tiniest of holes to get inside your house, but how the heck do they get there when the hole is way up high?

If you’ve lived in a home long enough, shoot if you’ve lived long enough period, chances are you’ve had to deal with a rodent invading your space at some point. Rats can enter your home through any opening the size of a quarter while mice only need an opening the size of a dime, so you can see how easy it can be for them to gain entry. If you only trap rodents once they are inside, you are treating the symptom and ignoring the disease. We always say it could be like trying to empty the sea of fish, they’ll keep coming. Exterior entry points also need to be repaired to completely solve rodent problems. Once inside, rodents present a variety of problems that could effect your health and your property negatively.
