How to Pest-Proof Your Attic & Basement
Many people are anxious about encountering unwanted pests especially in their own homes. As such, homeowners often take preventative measures as part of their seasonal maintenance routine. However, there are several rooms in a house that can be easily overlooked in the process of pest proofing-the attic and basement.
Rodents such as mice and rats tend to be the most common invaders of attics and basements, but a slew of insects can also make themselves at home if given the chance. Cockroaches, spiders and ants are a few of the usual suspects. These tenacious pests usually seek shelter, food and water in homes due to changes in weather, such as extended periods of rain or the onset of cooler temperatures.
Pest can find entry points into homes through almost any opening, including cracks and crevices as small as a dime in the structure’s exterior. Once mice or rats find their way into attics or basements, they can cause serious and costly property damage. Rodents are capable of destroying fiberglass insulation in attics and walls.
