As you’re outdoors stringing holiday lights and hanging decorations this month, be sure to look around your home’s exterior. Even tiny cracks and crevices can be a doorway into your home for mice and other creepy-crawlies. Homes should be looked over from top to bottom and sealed in a way that is safe and efficient. There are so many ways for bugs and other pests to creep into your home. Did you know that untrimmed tree branches can act as a highway for mice and squirrels to get into your attic? And did you remember to seal up that crawl space entry after any projects this summer? What about holes in your siding from rocks sprayed out of the lawnmower, or even a satellite or internet dish that has been removed or re-mounted? Most local hardware stores can recommend the right type of sealant for any problem areas you find. Or if you would rather combine a thorough inspection with preventative entry point protection from the professionals, just give us a call!
