Preventing Rodents in Your Home and Business

Rodents are some of the most common pests that invade homes and businesses. These pests can cause a lot of damage to your property and pose a significant health risk to you, your family, and clients. If left uncontrolled, these pests will reproduce at an alarming rate and quickly take over your property. At J&J Exterminating, we understand how devastating these pests can be and how challenging it is to control them. That is why we have invested in the best techniques and methods to help prevent rodent infestation in both homes and businesses.

1. Identifying Signs of a Rodent Infestation

The first step in preventing rodents from infesting your property is to identify signs of their presence. These signs include:

a. Droppings: Rodent droppings are an indicator that they have been in the area and are usually found near the food and water sources.

b. Gnawing: Rodents have a compulsive need to gnaw on hard objects like wood, plastic, and wires, which may cause physical damage.

c. Tracks: Rodent tracks are usually visible in dusty areas and can indicate where they have been exploring in your home or business.

2. Rodent-Proof Your Home or Business

After identifying a rodent problem, the next step is to seal all entry points and eliminate any sources of food and water that may attract these pests. Here are some tips to help keep rodents out of your property:

a. Seal any holes or cracks in your property’s foundation, siding, and roof to prevent rodents from entering.

b. Ensure all doors, windows, and screens are tightly sealed to keep rodents out.

c. Eliminate all sources of standing water both inside and outside your property.

d. Clean and seal all food containers and minimize open-access to food.

3. Rodent Control Methods

If you’ve already done your best to seal all entry points and existing rodent problem persists, you should consider investing in rodent control methods. J&J Exterminating provides a variety of solutions tailored to your specific rodent problem:

a. Traps: This is an effective method for trapping and killing rodents. Our team of professionals can help place them both inside and outside of your property.

b. Baiting Stations: This involves placing bait that is appealing to rodents to lure them into the station and kill them.

c. Fumigation: This method involves treating your property with a gas that kills rodents and their eggs.
