Florida Rodents: When Should You Worry?

You should worry about mice in your home if you find feces along the baseboards, on the counters, or in the cabinets. It's also worrisome if you see chewed holes in cereal boxes, rice bags, and other boxed and bagged goods. If you spot these signs or see the rodents, you'll want to contact a rodent control professional. Until then, take these steps to minimize the infestation.

Put food in sealed containers.

Transfer your wheat flour, rice, and other goods to plastic containers with secure lids. Alternatively, place those goods in the refrigerator or other areas where rodents can't locate them. If rodents don't have a food source, they won't stick around for long.

Seal the rodents' entry points.

Rodents can squeeze through small cracks and crevices around windows, doors, and vents. It's important to inspect your home for hidden entryways and to seal them with foam, silicone, or other types of stuffing. Taking away their entry points will go a long way in keeping rodents out of your home.

Contact pest control professionals.

You should contact a professional whether you see one or more rodents inside your living space. These rodents multiply quickly and can turn into a massive infestation in a few months. The professionals can inspect for rodents and take the correct measures to eliminate them from your property.
