If you had the choice, would you live in a shed or a mansion? Most people would choose the mansion. It is normal for any living creature to seek out the most comfortable place to live. Unfortunately, our homes are like mansions for rodents. When these pests get a chance to invade, they do.

Keeping this in mind, we would like to help you avoid active trouble with these furry invaders locally. Here are some things you should know about the rodents in Honolulu and methods to keep them out of your home. Call Able Pest Management if you want to know how our team handles these pests, and make an appointment for your property. Let us show you what rodent removal is supposed to look like locally.

Identifying Common Rodent Entry Points: Where Mice And Rats Sneak In

When rodents look for ways to invade homes here in Honolulu, they look for gaps, holes, cracks, and openings that are large enough to squeeze their bodies through. Some mice only need a space the width of a nickel to get indoors. Rats might need a hole a few inches larger than this.

Often, different types of rodents find entry points around electrical and plumbing holes, ventilation systems, and windows and doors. Older homes are more likely to have exterior damage that allows rodents with easy ways to get indoors. We will talk more in a bit about how you can seal up these entry points and why this method is not completely effective. 

Rodents On The Property Are A Major Risk

Having rodents on your property is a problem. Having these pests inside your home is a threat. Rodents are incredibly dangerous creatures. They actively carry bacteria, pathogens, and parasites that can lead to some fairly serious diseases. Some common sicknesses these pests might bring into your home include salmonellosis, hantavirus, rat-bite fever, tularemia, and leptospirosis.

To make things worse, wild rodents also damage property. If you do not want your family and home to be at risk, we highly recommend finding something to keep these pests away from your property. Here are some things you should consider about DIY control. 

Do-It-Yourself Rodent Control Is Less Than Completely Effective

Keeping rodents out of a home is not easy. There are lots of little things these pests can do to make invasion easier. Some rats are capable of chewing holes through soft concrete and aluminum siding. Some mice are able to squeeze through gaps, holes, and cracks the width of a nickel. Keeping this in mind, exclusion work does help to deter these pests. Some things that might help you keep different types of rodents at bay include:

  • Sealing cracks and gaps in your home’s foundation.
  • Addressing damage to windows and doors.
  • Filling in plumbing and electrical holes.
  • Keep unscreened windows and doors closed when you are not using them.
