Crisp, fall weather is a pleasant respite from the humid, hot days of summer, but it's also the beginning of chilly nights that are apt to draw rodents into buildings to escape the cold. Rats and mice are a resourceful crew and nimble enough to pass their bodies through even the smallest opening.


Once inside, they may start nesting with plans to settle in for as long as they can while cold weather continues. When they search for food, they do it at times when they're least likely to be caught. Through it all, they carry bacteria and filth that contaminates both the food and surfaces that are in their path.

Whether you own a business or a home, rodents are among the pests most likely to stick around after summer is over. It's difficult enough encountering one outside, but when they intrude on people indoors, it becomes a scary nuisance and a health problem.

Calling a commercial pest control service like Abell Pest Control is the best move that property owners can make to find out the scope of their rodent problem through a thorough pest inspection. Once completed, a customized treatment plan will be put in action with follow-up advice on how to prevent future rodent intrusions.

Plug any gaps

You may have noticed when you encounter rodents outdoors that they're typically near moist, dark areas. They're drawn to basement windows and door wells and crawl spaces under porches. Those are the places to check first, along with any spots where rats and mice may gain entrance to your home or business.

A leaking pipe or clogged drain is a good breeding place for rats. They'll nest between walls and floors and wherever they can get water and food from rubbish.

If you find any cracks or holes on the outside of your building - commonly around pipes and areas where utilities enter the house - block these openings with steel wool and caulk over them.

Loosened weather stripping around windows and doors or a crack in the building foundation may have provided just enough room for rodents to creep inside. These areas should be plugged, caulked and reapplied with sealants. Install door sweeps under all exterior doors and screens over chimney vents.

Once building gaps are addressed, move any unused firewood at least 20 feet from your building, clear out debris and trim back shrubs and other greenery. These are potential hiding places for rodents that, once removed, will limit their access indoors.
