Many of us are all too familiar with storing boats or campers for the winter months when we are not able to use them. The age old question is how do we keep mice from entering your stored boat or camper? There are many ideas and suggestions including mothballs, Irish spring bars, or dryer sheets. However, we have an additional suggestion that will keep the mice from entering your stored boat or camper not just for winter but all year long.
Exterior Baiting Programs from Erdye’s Pest Control keeps the mice from entering your stored boat or camper. Whether your boat or camper is in a storage facility or stored outside, our exterior baiting program will keep the mice away.
Our exterior baiting system allows rodents (mice, rats, and other small species) to enter the baiting system. The mice or other rodents will eat the bait which makes them very thirsty. As the rodents thirst for water, they will typically leave to find water directly after eating the bait. When this occurs, the rodents do not come back. With the baiting system, there is very little chance of any second-hand poisoning because the rodents only eat enough bait specific to their size. View the video below for a deeper look into Erdye’s Baiting System.
As with any mice or rodent issue, Erdye’s Pest Control provides a FREE comprehensive inspection and we will help you determine the best way to keep mice from entering your stored boat or camper. Call us today to schedule your appointment at 920.455.0373.
Do you consider squirrels to be a pest? If they are getting inside of your home, you most likely do. Pest control services do not just include the little bugs but can also consist of squirrels, snakes, and other unwanted insects and animals in your home. One of our latest adventures was to help a homeowner with a squirrel issue at their home. Our method of choice was to use a squirrel extruder.
Squirrel extruders allow the squirrel to exit the building yet the squirrel cannot get back in. The picture below shows the cone that we installed on the homeowners house. This allows the squirrel to be unharmed and to go on with their business, just not inside this house.
After we know that the squirrel has used the squirrel extruder, we come back to seal up the house so the squirrel cannot get back in. It’s safe for the squirrel and safe for the homeowner.

As the temperatures warm up and we get ready to play in the sun, we find the bugs and pests do the same. However, there are a few pest control tips you can implement to help keep the pests away so you can have fun all day.
1) A Clean Kitchen
What’s more appealing to ants and insects than crumbs they can find on your kitchen counter or floor? Nothing, they love this and believe they’ve hit the jackpot. Make sure to clean your counters, sweep your floors, and put food away immediately. By keeping your kitchen clean you can avoid inviting those pesky bugs and pests to a buffet you didn’t intend to provide.
2) Remove Standing Water
Standing water in toys, plant dishes, or items unintentionally left outside invite mosquitos to the party. Removing standing water will help control mosquitoes because standing water is a breeding ground for those pests. Take a look around the yard and dump out any water that doesn’t need to be there.
