Along with the cooler wet weather, autumn tends to generate an upsurge in the amount of pests and other rodents in your yard and but even worse, into your home. The normal suspects we find this time of year are mice, mole, voles, rats, squirrels, skunks and raccoons. The things that make us all uneasy about these four legged anti-pets are that most of them can bring diseases, parasites, and fleas, into your home. The bigger MMA sized pests, like raccoons and squirrels, can rip off shakes and shingles, destroy fascia, push-up soffit material and tear the tops off garbage cans in search of food, water and shelter. The number one way to prevent rodent issues before they occur is to limit water sources and completely illuminate any food outside your home, for example: bird seed, fallen fruit, pet food (and just stop feeding squirrels and raccoons). But once you hear those scratchy feet thumping around your attic or between the walls, during the day or night it’s time to consult the professionals. The calling card of most rodents include the smell of urine, ripped up insulation, torn wires, chewed plastic water pipes and nesting materials like paper and twigs. These things can all point to a rodent infestation - so you don’t want to wait too long to take action.
