Florida Rodent Control
Our general inspections for rodent control start with an inspection from the exterior to the interior of the property. To perform an effective inspection, we will need to find and close the entry points. This is the most important task in providing effective rodent control.
We look for entry points around the most common areas including the windows, garage doors, utility lines, dryer vents, door thresholds, downspouts and the construction gap. The construction gap is an area at the roof line left open for ventilation purposes. This area is the most common entryway for rodents and squirrels.
Other important places to check are the areas of the property that provide water, food, and harborage for the unwanted pests. These spots include areas with wood piles, overgrown vegetation, creeks, streams, wildlife feeders, dog or cat feeding sites, storage areas, crawlspaces, attics, garages and other areas that may be found during the inspection.
It is essential to use appropriate gauge steel screening or sheet metal at potential entry holes when securing areas for rodent control. Screening must be securely fastened with screws to prevent any re-entry. Steel wool can also be used to seal up entry holes
