As the wise saying goes, prevention is better than cure, experts will tell you that rat proofing or pest control is better and far more convenient than rodent removal.
Once your house is infested with rodents, pests or rats, it can become a huge problem and before you know it the entire saga would become unhygienic and they can spread some serious diseases.
The animation films may have compelled kids and adults to fall in love with the likes of Ratatouille and others but they are certainly not the least desirable at your home in San Ramon, CA.
The first step to rodent proofing your home is to keep all outdoor areas completely clean and tidy. This includes your yards, driveways and lawns if you have them. You must not provide any material or any space in these areas where rodents or rats can find shelter and bring other friends of their community along.

Basement is a very utilitarian space but we do not care enough to see if there are some holes somewhere, some breakage of furniture offering a harboring space for rodents or any leaks or mold growth that can invite pests.
