How to Keep Mice, Rats, and Rodents Away

Rodents and rats are known to contaminate your food and water at home. Not only that, they pose danger by potentially transmitting diseases like Leptospirosis or Weil’s disease. To control these pests at home, here’s what you have to do:

  • Clean after eating and store food properly
  • Food containers must be rodent-proof 
  • Regularly clean after spills and food crumbs in the kitchen counters
  • Wash your dirty dishes right after eating
  • Regularly take out the trash and store it on a tight lid bin
