Rats, mice, and squirrels can carry diseases and parasites into your home and cause significant damage if left to nest and breed inside your property. Therefore, you must immediately safeguard your home using effective rodent-proofing techniques upon first discovering the signs of a rodent infestation.

Identifying and Blocking Rodent Entry Points

Your first line of defense against a rodent infestation starts with a detailed visual inspection of your home’s roof, attic, and vents for any potential areas of exposure. These critters can squeeze into incredibly small openings, and they’re adept at scaling walls and reaching nearly any point of entry. If rodents are already in your home, then tracking their every possible entry point is key to effectively rodent-proof your home.

Rodent-Proofing Attics

When rodents get inside your home, they will likely go straight to your attic because of its generally dark, damp, and undisturbed atmosphere. Once you’ve located any possible attic entry points, you must secure them to keep additional rodents from getting inside. Block access for rodents by patching holes, gaps, and cracks that are at least a 1/4 -inch in size. Depending upon the size of the opening that rodents are using to get inside, you can use foam, mesh, hardware cloth, or sheet metal.

Rodent-Proofing Roof Vents

When inspecting your roof vents, ensure your chimneys are capped and that your vent screens are undamaged and secure. Make any necessary repairs and or replacements. To deter climbing rodents, attach metal rodent guards to piping, and paint black bands on stone or brick houses. Use high gloss paint and a 12-inch band about three feet above the ground to keep rodents out.
