Here's How to "Pest Proof" Your Home

Pests, such as rats and mice, have the capability of wreaking complete havoc at your home. Not only are they a nuisance, but pests can cause significant material damage and health problems.

When it comes to pest proofing your home, you must locate all of the points that make entering your home possible and seal those places immediately. Furthermore, it is critical to maintaining proper hygiene and sanitary conditions in order to discourage rodent infestation.

The following are important steps to keep rodents at bay and away from your home:

  • Inspect your home’s foundation. Start pest proofing your home by checking out the foundation of your home to look for any holes or gaps. Holes that are big enough to gain entry into your home should be blocked, while gaps should be blocked with black foam or mesh wire.
  • Examine all entry points. Ensure that doors and windows close properly, without leaving any gap in between that can act as an entry point for pests. Metal kick plates can be used to block any gaps.
  • Check your roof. Inspect chimneys, ventilators, and shingles for any breakages, leaks, or gaps. If evident, these gaps need to be filled in, and the chimney needs to be kept capped.
  • Inspect your garden. Your garden must be well maintained to keep pests out. Lots of overgrowth and rubbish can attract rodents, while any tree branches close to your home can be used as a passage.
  • Safe-proof pipe or wire lines. Install metal rodent guards so prevent any access to your home.
  • Keep your garbage bins sealed. Garbage must be kept in sealed bags or containers and remove any type of debris.
