Uninvited Fall Visitors
As the weather cools, uninvited visitors will come calling….. Be prepared
The biggest intruders are mice. A mouse can sneak in through a hole no bigger than a dime, while a raccoon-size creature can enter through a 6-inch opening.
Inspect your home for cracks and likely places of entry; windows, screens, plumbing vents and air vents in the kitchen or under the cupboards. Once you have located these entry points caulk and seal them up, replace broken screens or cover the vents with fine screening.
If you have dryer exhaust being pumped under your deck, patio, or staircase, channel it out into the open air, so critters won’t find a nice heated place to nest. However, if you suspect that rodents have already invaded your home, it may be time to call on a pest control expert.
