If you have a vegetable garden or a house lawn that is replete with a variety of food plants that can attract rodents, you may be in for a nasty treat as it will be near enough impossible to keep your garden free from rodent attack.

The vegetables in your backyard garden may be half eaten and can have signs of sporadic damage. This is one of the common signals of mice infestation. Mice nests can be found if you look really hard and grass nests can be spotted in cosy and shaded corners of the garden that are signals of mice or other rodents living in your garden.

Safeguard your electric wiring
Squirrels, rats and other rodents have powerful jaws and sharp teeth that can rip apart the electric wiring in your home in less than an hour. Incidentally rodents have an uncanny attraction towards anything chewy like furniture upholstery, rubber pipes and wires.

Once they get inside an area which has exposed or concealed wiring they will start chewing and damage the wiring. Automatically your home will fall in the high risk zone for fire damage. You probably know about the disastrous effects of fire damage which may not even leave your home in a recoverable condition.
