Don’t Put the Welcome Mat Out for Snakes & Rats

Everyone agrees that snakes and rats aren’t welcome in our residential commercial properties, but many of us unwittingly put out a welcome mat for them to come in.

Having a damaged garage door is like saying, “come on in.”

Don’t Put the Welcome Mat Out for Snakes & RatsGarage doors always incur a normal amount of wear and tear, and lots of people don’t realize that their garage door’s structural integrity has been compromised until the damage is severe.

Even if your garage door has a very small hole, it’s important that you get it taken care of immediately. Insects of any shape and size can creep into a very small hole, and snakes can easily bend to slither their way into their home. Rats and mice can also find their way in by chewing at a hole until it’s big enough for them to enter.

Just a small hole can quickly turn into a big problem, so make sure you don’t ignore any signs of damage on your garage door.

Gopher, coachwhip (racer), California Kingsnake, Western racer, striped racer (whipsnake), ring-necked, gartersnake are common snakes found throughout Southern California. While they’re harmless to humans, most of us would prefer to not see one relaxing in our living rooms or sunbathing by our swimming pools!

Western rattlesnakes are also frequently seen in Southern California, but they’re poisonous and very dangerous to humans. If you see one of these in your home, you’re going to have to call animal control immediately!
