Do Rodents Leave Homes in Spring?

As we stated in a previous blog, your home may have become a potential target for rodent infestation in the winter. One common misconception is that since the mice entered a home in the fall for warmth, they will likely leave when the temperatures reach higher lows. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

When rodents get comfortable inside your home, they are unlikely to leave without the encouragement to do so or physical removal. With many homes providing plentiful food sources, mice are usually content to continue their residency in your home. The worst aspect is that these mice have probably spawned many more over the winter.

These pests have likely created a comfortable nest within your home and are unlikely to want to leave it to find new shelter. Often this is because the shelter they have created is more than enough for their needs. There are steps that can be taken to coerce their leaving but professional pest control is often the best and most reliable option.

It is important to remove any food and water sources that rodents may be utilizing within your home. This can mean repairing any leaks and ensure food is properly stored in airtight containers that can’t be chewed through. By doing so, you can help encourage them to move on in search of easier targets.

As you may already know, rodents are notorious for carrying a wide variety of diseases that can negatively impact the health of you and your family. For this reason alone, their removal from your home should be a top priority. Don’t let these pests cause unnecessary frustration in your life.

Remember, although homes become easy targets for rodent infestation during the winter, the impacts they can have will continue until they are removed. If you are suffering from a rodent problem in your home, contact Arrow Exterminators, Inc. We know rodent control!
