Tips To Deal With Rodents In The Winter

Just as we prefer to stay indoors for warmth, rodents are also looking to escape the cold conditions outside.

Some things you can do to keep them outdoors include:

  • Check all of the seals around your window frames and external doors
  • Fix any loose mortar around the foundation of your building
  • Fill any holes
  • Check openings formed around pipes that enter the home
  • Loose debris should be swept away and your house should be kept clean
