Winter Invaders

At this time of year, many people hurry to fix the heater, the insulation, and make sure that the windows are sealed off for the fast approaching winter. One area we often miss is the attic. The attic is often where we store our holiday decorations and winter clothes, but it can also be home to wild animals. Birds may go south for the season, but the rest need shelter. Raccoons, squirrels, and more are known to break into your home to escape the winter chill.
Squirrels, snakes, raccoons, and bats can utilize the cracks or eaves on the roof to gain entry to the attic and walls of your home; due to their excellent agility and climbing skills. These animals can use the cracks in the eaves of your house, or dig through the roof to get inside. Attic spaces are often filled with all sorts of old boxes and clothes that pests can quickly turn into nests. Snakes, rats, squirrels, and the like can use the walls to travel to other parts of the home. This can cause disruptions in insulation, wiring damage, and animal waste in the walls.
Animals with poor climbing skills (such as rabbits, rats, and skunks) can enter from lower cracks or holes in the walls or foundation of the house. Pests that enter the walls, basement, or crawl spaces can often move or damage insulation and create pockets that cause drafts.
Make sure your home is in good condition all around to keep animals at bay. Clean up the yard before the snow starts to fall, in order to prevent dens and burrows to be made by your house. Animals often make use of tool sheds, wood piles, or untrimmed hedges as the start of a winter den. Clean up your yard, and secure your tool shed before wild animals get a chance to move in.

Don’t let mice squeak by this winter!

Winter is coming and that means all of the critters that live outdoors are gonna be looking for a warm place to reside during the cold months of the year. What better place than the walls and basement of your home! Nobody wants these disgusting rodents scurrying around their property all throughout the night; scavenging your kitchen for food and building nests inside your walls. Also, don’t forget about the dangers that they may bring to you and your family since they can carry all sorts of disease.

Mice are normally drawn to cluttered and unsanitary homes. If you have a cluttered basement full of storage, or if you have leftover food laying around they maybe more drawn to your home than a typical neat and clean home. However, mice will take what they can get, they are intelligent rodents and if the conditions outside are poor they will make even the cleanest of homes their new home. Some tell-tale signs of a mice infestation include; small pebble sized droppings, urine odors, gnawed holes, gnaw marks, rodent runways, rodent nests, scampering, and unusual pet behavior.

Mice like to nest in a variety of places. Normally they’ll find their way into the walls, however if they dont they may choose other locations such as; inside storage boxes, inside of ceiling voids, underneath appliances, or in ground burrows right outside of your home.

One of the dangers mice pose is the fact that they can possibly carry a lot of different diseases. One of the diseases are called the Hantavirus. This virus is a respiratory disease and if left untreated can actually be fatal. Another disease that they may carry is called Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis. This disease will cause fever, headaches, nausea and vomiting. Lastly and the most well known disease that they may carry is the Plague. As many know the disease is credited for killing millions of europeans during the middle ages. Today luckily the disease is curable and easily treatable, but why would you ever want a species credited with causing millions of deaths worldwide residing in YOUR home?

The next time you see or hear any of the signs that tell you that you may have mice in your home, contact us to ensure a safe and humane removal of these pesky rodents.
