The pitter patter of little feet may be Rodents nesting inside your home. Mice can enter a structure through openings as small as ¼”. The house mouse is the most common rodent pest in most parts of the world. A female house mouse can give birth to up to a dozen babies every three weeks. That is more than 200 babies a year!
Where Rats and Mice Live
Even the cleanest of homes can be invaded by rats. Rats are excellent climbers and often enter homes in the fall when the outside food sources become scarce. They can gain entry to a home through a hole the size of a quarter.
Threats: Rodents can chew through wiring, causing fires. They also spread numerous diseases and contaminate food. Micro droplets of rodent urine can cause allergies in children. They can also bring fleas, mites, ticks and lice into your home.

Weep Hole Covers Keep Rodents and Insects Out
Common Rodent Entry Points
The most common entry point into your home is through weep holes which are small holes found in homes with brick exteriors. These little holes are built into homes to allow water and condensation to drain out.
We can install Retrofit Weep Hole Covers that are designed to prevent insects from entering through existing weep holes. Moisture is still allowed to drain through the covers, but insects cannot enter! Ask for more details!
