Checking for Possible Entry Points
One of the most essential steps of the rat and mouse proofing process is to identify and seal any potential entry points that rodents can use to gain access to your home. An exterminator that specializes in rodent control near Pleasanton will know how to find even the tiniest cracks and spaces that rats and mice can use to invade your home. There are a few specific places that may be more likely to be used as possible entry points for rats and mice.
Since mice can squeeze through holes and cracks that are a fraction of their size, you will need to inspect even the smallest gaps, spaces, and crevices for signs of rodent entry. Some common areas that offer rodents entry points into homes include doors, window frames, floorboards, and dryer vents. You may also find small entry points around your attic or basement. Once your exterminator has identified any places where rats and mice may be getting into your home, these cracks and holes will be tightly sealed.
