Rodent Control in Mobile and Baldwin County, AL

Rodent in pipe of home. Rats, mice, and other rodents are known to be dirty and nasty but are also very clever about getting into your spaces. They commonly seek food and shelter in barns, roofs, garages, attics, basements, and other areas of our homes. Mosquito Joe of Gulf Coast Alabama offers rodent control services in Mobile, Daphne, Orange Beach, and surrounding areas.

What Can You Do To Stop A Rodent Infestation?

Rats and mice are usually in search of three things:

  • Food
  • Water
  • Shelter

Meaning that the key to effectively controlling rodents in your home is to eliminate access to these necessities. But how? Here are 11 things you can do to keep rats and mice away from your home:

  1. Always clean up spilled food and water in the kitchen. Store all food in air-tight containers.
  2. Keep kitchen garbage in containers with tight-fitting lids.
  3. Pick up pet food dishes and water when not actively in use.
  4. Patch and repair any holes, however small, in walls between rooms, between the garage and the attic, or leading outdoors. Pay particular attention to the back of cupboards and closets, vents, and around window casings.
  5. Inspect all vents, especially along the roof, to be sure the vent covers fit properly and are in good repair.
  6. Stop feeding wild birds. Spilled seed attracts and feeds rats and mice.
  7. When adding food scraps to the compost, always turn the compost to cover any food scraps fully.
  8. Prune any branches that overhang your roof, or that grow close to the roof.
  9. Pick up fallen fruit or vegetables in the garden.
  10. Keep the grass mowed short, trim shrubs, and remove leaf litter and clutter that can provide shelter.
  11. Hire a professional rodent exterminator, such as Mosquito Joe of Gulf Coast Alabama, to examine your property and curtail the rodent population.

Remember, rodents are plentiful, smart, and driven to survive. Any effective rodent control program will require vigilance on your part to help keep your spaces secure from rats and mice.
