Do You Have a Mouse Or Rat Problem?
- Droppings. If you start to notice rodent droppings in your basement, pantry or cupboards, it is a clear sign you have a home pest, like a rat or mouse.
- Gnawed Food Containers. If you start to find chewed corners of boxes or bags that contain food, this is a telltale sign that a mouse or rat is dining in your pantry, cupboard or cabinets.
- Shredded Siding or Insulation. If you notice insulation or exterior siding that has been chewed, shredded or pulled away around pipes or wiring, you have identified the point of entry for a rat, mouse or other rodent.
Don’t Provide Food
Rats and mice have an excellent sense of smell. Don’t entice them with pet food left outside. Only feed your pets an amount they can eat right away, and make sure to use metal containers with tight-fitting lids if you store your pet food outdoors or in your garage. Likewise, keep your garbage tightly covered, too.
Don’t Create Nesting Areas
Rats and mice love to find a cozy space to call home. Make sure you clear brush and thick bushes at least 100 feet away from your home. Don’t store abandoned vehicles, trash, old appliances or other junk in your yard. Keep your firewood and lumber stacked neatly and at least 18 inches off the ground and far from your home.

I had an unexpected bed bug issue from travelling, and the Foundation Pest Control team gave me a competitive quote within 24 hours, and arrived to treat my house in two days. I had a new baby so the team even offered to assist me with putting mattress covers on the beds. I could not have asked for a better experience given the situation.Lindsey O.
