Rodent Exclusion

Why Do I Need A Rodent Exclusion? The need for rodent exclusion is an imperative and straightforward answer. When in your home, business, or any structure, Rodents had to come from an opening or void in that home at some point. Without that opening, they would not be present to pose an infestation, possible electrical fires from gnawing, or health hazards, etc. Watching our Imperial Pest Prevention YouTube video above will give you a glimpse of rodents inside your home, attic, crawlspace, etc. Sealing openings from rodent entry is an absolute must for protecting your home, health, and family.

How To Prepare For A Rodent Exclusion

  1. All trash piles, loose garbage around the home, and refuse need to be removed and eliminated.

  2. All garbage cans, trash receptacles, and dumpsters need to have snug-fitting lids to keep the garbage from being exposed.

  3. Shrubs and trees need to be properly maintained and trimmed from touching a home's structure or roof.

  4. Stored Lumber and Firewood should be at least 25 feet away from the structure and off the ground.

  5. Bird feeders and pet food must not be stored outside.

  6. If your home happens to have excessive stored items around the exterior, sheds not in the greatest conditions with a multitude of storage in them, barns, detached garages, etc.,  it is also imperative that these locations receive a good spring cleaning as well.
