Baby, it's cold outside...for the mice.

When the temperature drops, we like to snuggle up inside
our homes, all warm and cozy. The same goes for little critters, specifically mice. During the colder months, it's not uncommon to see these little guys when you least expect it. While most rodents are not as active during the winter, they do seek out shelter, warmth, and food. Once their stockpile for winter starts to run low, they begin scavenging for food where they can find it. Places like your pantry become a mouse's buffet overnight.

While some people think mice are cute, the truth is they can carry diseases and spread their germs on everything they encounter. According to the CDC, mice and rats spread over 35 diseases worldwide. Since mice only need a quarter-inch gap to access your home, it's imperative to seal up any entry points they may have found or created. Our Cingo Prevent and Cingo Protect plans now include ground-level rodent exclusion during your initial visit to address these specific issues.

If you're thinking of placing your home on the market, rodent exclusion is our recommended starting point for preparing your home for listing. Finding evidence of prior rodent activity during a home inspection has been labeled as a top reason to cause a contract to fall through.

Don't wait for a rodent issue to sneak up on you. Be prepared with one of our total home protection plans. Safeguard your home from unexpected intruders, both large and small.
