For the majority of us, there is no love lost for rodents. They are notoriously difficult to deal with for homeowners, and a single mouse could give birth to dozens of mice during a year, so keeping your home rodent-free is a battle that you need to win.

Depending on where you live, you might end up dealing with different types of rodents. In cities rats are more common while mice, squirrels and chipmunks are what you can expect in rural areas. All these rodents have an amazing ability to squeeze in through cracks and holes that look to be way too small for them, and once they are in your home, they could find a perfect place to live. Make sure that you seal up your food well so that they can’t get easy access to a food-source in your home. You should also check for claw-marks where they have been working on an entrance. Patching these up could prevent further intrusion.
