Is Your Scottsdale Home Rodent Proof?

Having a rodent-proof home is one of the most important things that you can do for your Scottsdale property. Rodents are capable of sneaking through dime-sized openings, so be sure to fill any opening around your foundation, doors, and windows that you might spot. Materials like sheet metal, weatherstripping, steel wool, and wire mesh are particularly helpful. It’s important to ensure a good seal around doors because the gaps around them are one of the most common ways that rodents can get inside. Keeping doors and windows open judiciously is also important because rodents can also easily just run right into your home. It’s also crucial to trim back any overhanging trees and shrubbery that might be coming into contact with your home, as rats are very skilled climbers.
