Connecticut Rodent Exclusion
Connecticut rodent exclusion is needed if you own a home or business that is having problems with these pesky unhealthy animals. Rodents, like mice, rats, squirrels, and chipmunks have been a frequent problem in homes, businesses, and anywhere people may reside for many years, especially in Connecticut. Why you may ask do we have so many mice and rodents coming into our homes in Connecticut? Well it’s partly because of our New England environment. Like the saying goes in New England, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” The change of seasons in Connecticut can be beautiful, but with the ever changing ups and downs in temperature it drives mice, rats, and rodents to find a stable environment in which to live. Most of the time this stable environment is in your home or business building. Rodent exclusion is part of an effective game plan for getting mice, rats, and rodents out of you house or dwelling in Connecticut.
If you live in Connecticut you may be asking yourself what is rodent exclusion? Simply explained rodents, like mice, can enter into a house through an opening as small as a dime. Rodent exclusion in Connecticut focuses on sealing any openings around your home or business building where the mice, rats, squirrels, and chipmunks can get in. When having your rodent problem taken care of it is important to also have your Connecticut licensed rodent control expert to trap the mice, rats, or rodents in your dwelling. If you don’t trap the rodents inside you will have a quickly growing population of rodents, like mice, living with you with no way of escape.
You may see a bigger mouse problem in your Connecticut house during the spring, fall, and winter months. This does not mean during summer the mice are not entering your home or business. During warmer months the rodents may be going outside to forage and find food. They may also be coming inside to get away from the heat. Mice and rodents are smart animals, they know where to get in your home and find a free meal in the cooler months and a place to cool off when its hot out.
