Worldwide, rats and mice spread over 35 diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, or through rodent bites. Diseases carried by rodents can also be spread to humans indirectly, through ticks, mites or fleas that have fed on an infected rodent.
The primary strategy for preventing human exposure to rodent diseases is effective rodent control in and around your home and business. This is achieved by eliminating any food sources, sealing even the smallest entries into homes or business and successfully trapping rodents in and around your home or business.
Seal up your home or business is one of the first steps in rodent control!
Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel, and rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar! Prevent rodents from entering the home by checking inside and outside the house for gaps or holes.
Where to look for gaps or holes inside your home
Inside, under, and behind kitchen cabinets, refrigerators and stoves.
Inside closets near the floor corners.
Around the fireplace.
Around the pipes under sinks and washing machines.
Around the pipes going to hot water heaters and furnaces.
Around floor vents and dryer vents.
Inside the attic.
In the basement or crawl space.
In the basement and laundry room floor drains.
Between the floor and wall juncture.
Where to look for gaps or holes outside your home
In the roof among the rafters, gables, and eaves.
Around the foundation
Attic vents and crawl space vents.
Around holes for electrical, plumbing, cable, and gas lines.
Fill small holes with copper mesh. We sell this in our store. Put caulk around the steel wool to keep it in place. Use lath screen or lath metal, cement, hardware cloth, or metal sheeting to fix large holes. These materials can be found at your local hardware store. Fix gaps in trailer skirtings and use flashing around the base of the house. If you do not remember to seal up entry holes in your home, rodents will continue to get inside. Outbuildings and garages should also be sealed to prevent the entrance of rodents.
Trap rodents around the home to help with rodent control and reduce the rodent population.
Choose an appropriate snap trap. Traps for catching mice are different from those for catching rats. Carefully read the instructions before setting the trap.
When setting the trap, place a small amount of Provoke sold in our store. You can also use chocaolate or jelly (approximately the size of a pea) on the bait pan of the snap trap. Position the bait end of the trap next to the wall so it forms a "T" with the wall. Rodents prefer to run next to walls or other objects for safety and do not being out in the open.
Rodent control in attics, basements, and crawlspaces and other areas that do not have regular human traffic, set traps in any area where there is evidence of frequent rodent activity. Some rodents, particularly rats, are very cautious and several days may pass before they approach the traps. Other rodents, such as house mice and deer mice, are less cautious and may be trapped more quickly. You can also use rodent glue boards as well. There are times when only rodent snap traps or rodent poision will work for rodent control.
Also place traps in outbuildings and in areas that might likely serve as rodent shelters. Natural rodent predators, such as non-poisonous snakes, owls, and hawks, may also help with rodent control and reduce the number of rodents outside the home.
Clean up rodent food sources and nesting sites is very important!
Prevent contact with rodents by cleaning up your home, workplace, or campsite.
Eliminate possible rodent food sources
Keep food in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids.
Clean up spilled food right away and wash dishes and cooking utensils soon after use.
Keep outside cooking areas and grills clean.
Always put pet food away after use and do not leave pet-food or water bowls out overnight.
Keep bird feeders away from the house and utilize squirrel guards to limit access to the feeder by squirrels and other rodents.
Use a thick plastic or metal garbage can with a tight lid.
Keep compost bins as far away from the house as possible (100 feet or more is best).
Keep grains and animal feed in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids. In the evening, uneaten animal feed should be returned to containers with lids.
If storing trash and food waste inside the home, do so in rodent-proof containers, and frequently clean the containers with soap and water. Dispose of trash and garbage on a frequent and regular basis, and pick up or eliminate clutter.
Eliminate possible nesting sites outside the home. Elevate hay, woodpiles, and garbage cans at least 1 foot off the ground. Move woodpiles far away from the house (100 feet or more is best). Get rid of old trucks, cars, and old tires that mice and rats could use as homes. Keep grass cut short and shrubbery within 100 feet of the home well trimmed.
