Common Ways Rodents Get Inside Your Home

Cooler weather is on the way and rodents will soon be seeking safe shelter to escape the elements. Your home is a prime target for these rodents, and you might be surprised how many ways they can get inside. Mice can fit through a hole as small as a dime!

Now is an excellent time to thoroughly inspect the exterior of your home for vulnerabilities. Check for cracks, crevices, gaps and holes in and around the following areas:

  1. Foundation
  2. Window frames
  3. Window screens
  4. Garage doors
  5. Man doors
  6. Siding
  7. Vents
  8. Chimneys
  9. Utility pipes
  10. Cable lines
