Footprints in the Snow

Happy Wednesday everyone! We hope you are staying warm and cozy during this beautiful blizzard.

While we cozy up to our fireplaces inside, many animals would also like to do the same in our attics and garages. If you've recently heard some rattling around in your home and thought that maybe you have unwanted visitors - tomorrow will be the perfect time to check around for some tell tail signs that you have some 4 legged guests by looking for their tracks in the snow! Try and have a look before the sun has a chance to melt the snow so you can see a crisp footprint. You may or may not be able to identify the animal, but you will certainly be able to see where they are entering your house. When dealing with nuisance animals like raccoons and squirrels, the best course of action is to cut off access to your home by repairing the point of access. Not only will this solution prevent future break-ins, but it will also help keep your energy costs down.

Horizon can help with any nuisance animal issues you might have in your home or business. Remember, while they are very cute and cuddly from a distance, they are in fact wild animals. For your safety and the safety of the animals, call a professional for help.

Stay warm!

As small as a quarter or dime...that's all!

When it’s cold outside, like it is today, rodents will be looking for opportunities to get into buildings for food and warmth. Did you know that Rats can get into any building through an opening as small as a quarter, and mice only need a hole the size of a dime? Keep these coins in mind as you think about whether these pests could be putting your home or office at risk. Once inside, rodents will immediately start looking for something to eat and a place to nest nearby their food. Since they prefer areas that are dark and out of the way, cabinets, closets and storage areas are ‘hot spots’: They can have close access to food and not be bothered by us humans. Often times, months can go by before anyone even notices signs of them, such as droppings and gnaw marks!

Be sure there are no openings in your home or office that are bigger than a dime, if you want to have peace of mind from mice this winter. If there are, try to seal them up as soon as possible, so you have a rodent-proof home!
