A key pest control tip for outside pets is to be sure the food you put out for your pets is no more than they can consume in a single feeding. Left over pet food or bulk feeders will attract mice and wildlife to your home.  Along with not having extra pet food on your exterior, limiting harborage areas around the exterior will make your home less attractive to pests.  Examples of harborage areas include leaves against your homes foundation and wood piles near your home.
