How To Control Rodents In Your Medina Home

Rodents are a common pest in Medina homes, and for the tiny creatures they are, they can cause significant damage once they make it inside your walls. Like most pests, rodents enter homes in search of food, water, and shelter. They often nest in out-of-sight places like basements and closets or behind large appliances. The overall best way to control rodents in your home is to prevent them in the first place. You can do this by implementing the following prevention measures:

  • Never leave food out in the open. Store leftovers in covered containers or the refrigerator, pick up pet food overnight and regularly harvest vegetables and fruit from trees and gardens.

  • Limit excess moisture. Check for and correct any leaking plumbing, ensure drainage is working properly, use dehumidifiers as needed, and eliminate other sources of standing water.

  • Reduce harborage areas. Rodents seek out cluttered spaces to build their nests. Often, they nest outdoors on a property before seeking ways inside. Limit their options for nesting by keeping woodpiles away from your home, removing fallen trees, leaf piles, and other organic debris, and making sure both indoor and outdoor storage areas are organized and clutter-free.

  • Eliminate access points. Rodents can enter homes through tiny openings. Reduce these opportunities by caulking holes in the foundation and exterior walls of your home, keeping screens on doors and windows, and securing areas around utilities and chimneys. It is also helpful to trim shrubs and bushes away from the walls of your home.

Prevention is best, but if rodents have made their way into your home, you can trust the 1st Response Pest Management experts to get them out safely and effectively and make sure they don’t return. Call today to find out more about our eco-friendly pest control options. 

Six Ways To Manage Mosquitoes On Medina Properties 

Not only are mosquitoes obnoxious, but they are also dangerous pests that transmit illnesses and make people sick. These pests are common throughout Ohio but prefer areas that provide standing water and shady spaces. To keep mosquitoes under control on your Medina property, try the following six steps:

  1. Eliminate standing water: Mosquitoes need water to breed. Whether it’s an overturned toy collecting rainwater or an uncovered hot tub, look for places on your property where water is collecting and find ways to reduce mosquitoes' access to water.

  2. Check drainage: When checking for standing water, don’t forget to think about drainage. It’s important to maintain your gutters and downspouts to prevent water from pooling in out-of-sight places.

  3. Maintain landscaping: In addition to water, mosquitoes are on the lookout for shady spaces to rest while they await their next meal. Limit these resting spots by keeping lawns mowed and trimming overgrown vegetation.

  4. Deny entry: The only thing more obnoxious than a mosquito buzzing in the yard is one buzzing in your home. Prevent mosquitoes from entering your home by keeping doors and windows shut when possible and repairing any loose or torn screens.

  5. Protect yourself: Even with prevention steps, you’re bound to encounter mosquitoes now and then. Protect yourself by wearing mosquito repellent and avoiding going out during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.

  6. Partner with professionals: The best way to protect yourself and your family from mosquitoes is to partner with the 1st Response Pest Management professionals. Call today to find out more about our effective mosquito control services.
