Rodent Proofing Tips 

Clean Up Common Areas

  • Keep counters, floors, cabinets, and pantries clean and free of crumbs.
  • Clean large household appliances regularly - mice often make those areas their home.
  • Wash all dishes immediately after use for best rat prevention practices.

Eliminate Nesting Areas

  • Keep all storage off the floor at the inside and outside of foundation perimeters.
  • Make sure to clean and organize your garage, attic and basement areas on a regular basis.

Keep Pet Areas Clean

  • Never leave food or water out overnight, even for your pets.
  • Clean up after your pets daily for rat prevention - pet feces are a food source for rats and mice.

Seal Potential Entrances

  • Mice can squeeze through spaces as small as a dime. Seal up potential entrances with sheet metal, steel wool or cement.
  • Check spaces around foundations, pipes, vents and ducts and block them with steel wool or cement. The best mouse and rat prevention is making sure they can't get in.
