What if a rodent got inside my house?

If you find the rodents in the home, the first place. Look on the roof because it is the place where most rodents will use to come into the home. Some rodents may only need a half-inch entry to enter so make sure that you sealed all these places. The roofers may leave the gap between the fascia board and the roof and the rodents may use it to enter into the home. The common rodents’ entries are in the pipes, walls or in the gap between the pipes while entering into the home. The rodents may also use the vents on the ground level. Each inch of a building had to be inspected and every opening should be repaired. When the rats are already inside, they may enter into the ceiling because it is a tight place and they like to enter into a ceiling. You may be hearing the scratching or little feet passing over the house in the night or even during the day.



It is common to find the rodents in the attics or in the basement. The rodents may also enter into the building because of the warmth and safety and it is also a good nesting ground. If you have the food in the barn, it is going to be the magnet of the rodent. You have to clean up foods the best you are able to do so. This is because it is not easy to seal all the openings that may lead to the barn.

If the rodents are found within the bathroom or in the living room, you may set up the traps in order to get rid of them but you have to be careful, about the children or the pets. When the rodents are found in your home, you have to seal areas outside of a home which may prevent them against entering into the home. While looking for the rodents in the kitchen, start by looking at the power supply found near a stove since it is the easier space where they can use to get inside of the home. You may set the trap in the cabinets or pantry also.

Generally, finding a rodent in your home requires solution for rodent removal. Traps are the safest and most effective solution, however take care to use traps that are legal in your state and to use humane ones. Go back to the How to get rid of wildlife home page.
