At Critter Control® of Gainesville, we believe the best way to get rid of a rodent infestation is to keep it from happening in the first place. Keeping windows closed when possible and making sure screen enclosures are in good repair goes a long way. Keep an eye out for any large cracks or holes on the exterior of your home to prevent rodents from easily entering. Be sure to keep food containers tightly sealed. In the event that a rodent does make it into your home, you want it to be as difficult as possible for them to access food.
