Rodent-Proofing Your Home for Winter

Sep 23, 2019 | EcoArmor

Colorful leaves and football season means that Fall is in the air. Here in Texas, the temperature is finally starting to cool off a little, and it is the perfect time to tidy up the yard and prepare for winter. Rodents are also preparing for winter by storing food and finding a warm, safe place to live. If you do not want rodents to spend the winter in your home or business, now is the best time to rodent-proof your home. 


Rodent-Proofing Tips for Inside Your Home

“Jordan is a consummate professional. We had gone to Florida for an extended weekend and had some ant setup residency while we were gone. Jordan was out the following Thursday morning and by the time I had gotten home from work, the ants had been evicted. Extremely satisfied with my results! Ask for Jordan.”
