Mice and Rats Bring Disease Indoors

Rats and mice can cause serious problems when they get inside your NJ home or business. These rodents can spread infectious illnesses, ruin food and damage your building. Our Ocean County pest control experts want you to know more about rodent proofing your home or business, so you can keep these pests out.

Inspect the Exterior

Carefully inspect the exterior of your home or business and look for small gaps, cracks and other openings that rodents can get through. Seal up these areas with caulk, steel wool or other materials to prevent rats and mice from getting in. Pay close attention to areas near windows and doors, as well as your building’s foundation.

Trim Tree Branches

Some rats and mice can get into your home or business by jumping onto the roof and gutters. Keeping the branches of trees near your home or business trimmed helps prevent this from happening.

Get Rid of Clutter

Rats and mice can make a nest in piles or boxes of clutter that you have laying around. Get rid of this clutter, especially from areas that are easy for rodents to get into, such as garages and attics.
