Rodent-Proofing Your Seminole County Yard
Rodent control is a problem that most people face inside their homes or in their yards. They damage property, contaminate food, and transmit diseases. Therefore, effective rodent control methods are crucial. The following suggestions should help in eliminating rodents in your Seminole county yard and home.
It is vital to eliminate any food sources surrounding your yard. Be sure to have a garbage can large enough to handle any food you may be throwing out, and be sure that your garbage can is equipped with a tight fitting lid as well. Don’t litter, and if someone litters around your yard, make sure to take care of it. You should always try to drain and wrap any garbage before disposing of it and never forget to clean up animal waste and excess food from the area surrounding your yard.
Remove excess water. You should always keep any drains covered and secure, if you have any defective drains or pipes, don’t put off taking care of the damages since this excess water may attract pests. Periodically check your gardening hose to make sure it is not leaking or has any holes in it. If you do notice any standing water in your yard, be sure to find a way to get rid of it.
Don’t give rodents a place to hide! Remove any abandoned vehicles or if you have vehicles you don’t use as often, attempt to move them or check under to make sure there aren’t any surprises under there. If you have any leftover lumber from a project, old boxes or discarded appliances, be sure to dispose of them properly…the more they linger around, the more likely some pests could be calling it home.
