Clutter Management: Reducing Rodent Hiding Places

We highly recommend cleaning out your garage and organizing your storage areas. This will go a long way to reducing potential nesting sites and deterring different types of rodents from settling down inside or around your home.

Other great options to prevent these pests include sealing entry points around your home’s exterior, addressing damage to windows and doors, and fixing moisture problems. For more help combatting rodents, talk with our team.
