   The best way to avoid problems with rats or mice is to:

  1. Provide as little harborage as possible that might attract rodents around or close to your home, and
  2. Seal as many holes and crack and crevices outside of the home as possible (to prevent rodent entry).

   The following are examples of things you can do to discourage or prevent rat or mice problems in/around your home. Keep firewood stored as far from the home as possible and store it up off the ground. Even in winter, do not place more than a couple of day’s supply of wood up next to the home. If possible, remove any piles of debris, stones bricks and similar materials. Especially if these are next to or close to the foundation of the home, they serve as harborages to attract rodents and provide ideal hiding areas. Seal all holes and cracks larger than ¼ inch. As a rule of thumb if a pencil can fit into it, a mouse could squeeze through. Larger holes should be stuffed with steel wool prior to sealing with caulk, foam, plaster or cement. Make sure you have thick, unbroken/unbent weather-stripping on the bottom of all doors. In addition, the weather stripping around garage doors needs to have a very firm seal.

   As part of Nature-Rite’s service we can provide monitoring devices, traps and baiting for rodents if problems are suspected or occur.

Stinging Insects-

   These insects are very close relatives to ants. They are social insects that live in a colony or nest and the females are equipped with stingers. One major difference between honey bees and wasps is that the honey bee can only sting once, the sting comes out when it is used, and wasps can sting repeatedly. The problem with bee or wasp stings is that some individuals are highly sensitive or allergic to the venom. If you do not know for sure about your or your family’s sensitivity to wasp or bee stings, then just do not chance it. If you see bees, wasps or their nests around your home, just give us a call.

   If paper wasps are nesting under the eaves of your home, we can normally easily solve the problem by removing the nest; however, some species of yellow jackets nest in the soil or under piles of debris, thus it may take time to locate and destroy their nesting site.

   The most common problem encountered with honey bees is with swarms or during a movement and relocation of members of a hive. During this period you may encounter large numbers of bees ‘balled’ together and hanging from under an eave, patio cover, or in the branches of a tree. Removal of a swarm can be a tricky and time consuming endeavor. Should you encounter such honey bee activity on your property, give us a call and we will make special arrangements to handle the situation.

   Gophers are burrowing rodents living and feeding almost entirely underground. Generally, they eat roots and bulbs. However, they can also eat plants that they pull down into their burrows. Gophers can kill vines, shrubs and trees by eating most of their root system. Roses are very vulnerable to gophers. Plants damaged in this manner usually wilt, sometimes only on one side. Pocket gophers are solitary and fiercely territorial, so only one gopher inhabits a run system at a time.

   Gopher runs or burrows are between 6 to 18 inches below the surface. The first sign of gophers is a fan-shaped mound of fresh, finely pulverized earth in a lawn or flowerbed. The hole is usually off to one side of the mound. It is important to know where the entrance hole is, so that you are sure the problem is gophers. Moles make similar mounds, but the entrance to a mole hole is in the center of the mound not off to one side.

   Pesky birds make bad neighbors. They're noisy, inconsiderate and are a potential health risk. Bird droppings and bird nests carry various diseases that can be passed on to people and pets. Their nests are home to numerous parasites such as mites, fleas, ticks and pathogens.
