How To Keep Rodents Away From Your Garage

Posted on February 10th, 2021 by Knockout Pest

Since February is one of the coldest months of the year, rodents may decide to call your garage their new home. After all, a garage provides more warmth than the great outdoors! Continue reading to find out what steps you can take to keep rodents away from your garage.

Seal Any Gaps

When there are cracks or holes located near your garage, it will only be that much easier for rodents to gain access to your home. Fortunately, you can avoid this scenario altogether by sealing these gaps. Taking a proactive approach to this situation will help you keep these unwanted critters at bay. 

Get Rid Of Clutter

Is there a lot of clutter in your garage? If so, you are not alone! Since clutter can serve as the perfect hiding place for a mouse or a rat, it is a good idea to declutter your garage sooner rather than later.

Keep Food In Airtight Containers

It is commonplace for people to use the garage in their home as another storage room. If need be, they might even have to store food there. To prevent rodents from having a midnight snack, be sure to store your food in airtight sealed containers. 

Are there rodents residing in your garage at the moment? If you can relate, turn to the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control for assistance. We can knockout rodents and keep them down for the count!
