gutter cleaning in Marlborough ma
Once again Amerimax Home Products has completely red-pilled me matrix style. In a google search I came across an amermax product called the 3 in. x 4 in. Plastic White Rodent Guard. What's a rodent guard you ask? Apparently this rodent guard is made to fit on the end of a downspout to keep rodents out!
You may wonder "why would I have to worry about rodents in my downspouts?" Well according to Amerimax this little gadget prevents rodents from climbing up your downspouts. Once they climb up your downspout, they can scurry into your gutter, then up under your roof and into your home. I have never heard of this happening but according to pestva.com, downspouts are one of the five most common ways rats gain entry to a home.
"Although downspouts don’t look easy to climb rats will run right up them without any trouble. They can use the confined space to their advantage by pushing their feet to one side and their backs to the other."
If my wife reads this blog post she'll be freaked out about rats and have me install these guards on every downspout. Thank you Amerimax!
