Are Rodents Hiding Inside Your Woodbridge Walls?


April 16, 2022

All kinds of rodents can be a problem for your Woodbridge property, and all rodents are extremely skilled at infiltrating your home, even in the most unusual ways. To determine if rodents are hiding inside your walls, you should review the information in our article and contact our Woodbridge pest control team for more assistance.

Do Rodents Travel In Air Vents? 

All types of rodents, most notably rats and mice, can squeeze themselves through small holes no larger than a quarter, meaning they can easily invade air vents around your property. Rodents seek these areas due to the convenience of shelter, their warmth, and how easy it is for them to move to different areas of your property. This ability to travel through air vents means that an infestation of rodents can become widespread throughout your property and greatly increase the risk of health issues and destruction.

How To Block Mice And Rats From Living In The Walls 

To stop mice and rats from living in the walls of your Woodbridge property, you should take steps to seal up any potential entry points to keep different types of rodents out. These entry points include cracks and gaps around the foundation or crawl space in your house, near windows and doors, and around attics and chimneys. You should use a chew-proof material such as steel wool or metal sheeting to seal these areas and be thorough as rodents can fit into incredibly small holes.

If you see gnaw marks or signs of chewing on your interior walls, you should contact Bluebird Pest Solutions for an inspection and assistance in removing an infestation before you seal these entry points.

What Are Non-Toxic Ways To Get Rid Of Rodents?

There are several non-toxic ways to both deter and get rid of rodents. Follow the steps below to reduce your chances of a widespread rodent infestation.

  • You can use essential oils, such as peppermint oil, around your property to deter rodent infestations. Simply blend water with a few drops of peppermint oil and a few drops of dish soap and spray the mixture around your property’s foundation.
  • Reduce factors that may attract rodents around your home, such as leaving food and drink spills out, not disposing of trash properly, and not sealing food items in pantry areas.
  • Remove debris from your yard, cut back foliage, and trim grass low to stop rodents from hiding around your property and eventually moving inside when they want more shelter, food, or water.
  • Fix moisture issues in your yard that create excess pools of water. These attract thirsty rodents.
