Winter Rodent Control

Winter Rodent Control

The winter season is a tough time of year for those who have to deal with rodents. A common misconception is that rodent infestations are less likely during winter months. According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), rodents invade an estimated 21 million homes in the U.S. each winter.

You want to keep your home clean and rodent-free, but you also don't want to use toxic chemicals that could harm you or the environment. That's where EcoClear Products come in! We have created a line of products effective against mice, rats and other rodents without using toxic, conventional poisons. This informational guide will help you prepare your home for the winter months and keep it critter-free with EcoClear Products.

Get Started Early

Get started early on prepping your home so you can have a rodent-free winter! There are plenty of measures you can take to prepare your home for winter, some of which are below. In addition, rodent control products are easy to use and help prevent the need for expensive exterminators. No conventional poisons are used or needed! Eco-friendly solutions from EcoClear Products contain naturally derived ingredients that will not harm your family, pets or the environment.

Seal up all entry points to your home

To prevent rodents from entering your home, seal up all entry points. Our rodent control experts recommend using metal or plastic sheeting as a barrier over openings in the wall and ceiling. Use caulk to seal cracks where pipes enter or leave walls. Steel wool also makes an excellent filler for holes that could allow rats or mice into your house. If you are unsure if you have a rodent infestation, check for droppings (one of the easy-to-spot signs of an infestation) in cupboards, cabinets, or areas where food is stored.

Keep food waste contained

Winter is a time for friends, family, and food! With all the festivities, your next gathering could look like a feast for hungry rodents. Ensure that you practice proper food storage and sanitation. Rodents can live off small amounts of food, so keep in mind that you should clean up any food-related messes relatively quickly and avoid leaving food out for extended periods. This practice will remove food sources that might attract rodents into your home. Properly disposing of waste or any remains – including what is in your trash cans will help keep unwanted house guests away.

Other tips to prevent rodents from entering your home are:
  • Make sure windows are sealed and caulked
  • Keep your garage organized and clean so that rodents do not enter this space and eventually make it into your home 
  • Do not pile leaves or debris around your home, which can create shelter and a safe space for rodents to hide. 
  • Bird feeders near your home, especially near entry points, can feed rodents and encourage them closer to your home.
  • If you have dogs or cats, try not to leave food out and open. Rodents, including mice and rats, will be attracted.

Take care of your rodent removal needs

EcoClear Products rodent control solutions are naturally derived, eco-friendly and effective. They are easy to use and help prevent the need for expensive exterminators. Our most popular product is RatX, which kills rats and mice with zero risk to people, pets or wildlife. Other products include MouseX & VoleX, both effective at controlling rodents such as mice, rats, and voles.

EcoClear Products are easy to use 

Our rodent removal products are easy to use. All you have to do is place the pellets, throw packs, or ready trays into the areas where rodents hide or where activity is spotted, and they will eat it. 

RatX, MouseX, and VoleX all work from the inside out to exterminate the rodent. Once ingested, active ingredients in the pellets coat the stomach lining, blocking all messages from the stomach to the brain. This blockage causes the rodent to stop wanting water, leading to eventual dehydration and death. The rodent is then dried out after death, reducing odor by as much as 90%. It's that simple, and because our products do not contain conventional poisons, there is no risk in placing them around your home or office space.
