How to protect your home against pests [Video]

As the temperature drops, small pests like mice and rats will look for places to keep warm. Your apartment building may be the perfect opportunity for these creatures to build a nest if you haven’t taken the proper precautions.

What are the best ways you can pest-proof your building? According to Good Housekeeping, you should be on the lookout for holes as small as a quarter in the walls, especially in basements and other possible entry points. You can place mouse traps with a dab of peanut butter in front of these spots. As an extra precaution, you can stuff the hole with steel wool. Working with professional exterminators like Rudy’s also ensures that mice stay away.
