Return of the Rodents: How Mice and Rodents Enter Your Home

Starting in the fall, mice and other rodents need to find a warm place for the winter. They'll store food and build nests. The warmest place rodents can find is your house. It's perfect – it's warm, has food, and a drinking source. Whether you already have problems or you anticipate problems, it's time to take steps to prevent these pests from entering your home. Once they do, you'll end up with a large infestation that is harder to control.

Bed Bugs, Roaches, and Rodents, Oh My: The Fall Pest Guide

During the fall, outdoor pests start getting ready for the cooler weather, which means they are looking for a warm, dry place for the next several months. Your house is the perfect place for them to overwinter. From the smallest bed bug to the largest rat, you'll have to fight these fall pests unless you take pest control steps. In some cases, you can implement pest control yourself and be successful, but if you don't notice the problem until it becomes an infestation, you will need the services of a professional pest control service.

They will only stay where there’s plenty of food and water, so pet food and leaky pipes are bound to attract this vermin to your house.
