How do you know if you have a rodent infestation?
There are a few things that will indicate if you have a rodent problem in your attic. If you hear noises coming from the ceiling there is a good chance it is rats or other rodents. If you have noticed indentions in the wood in your attic it is very possible it is from rodents. You may also notice rodent feces. If you have experienced any of these you may want to consider giving us a call.
How will we rodent proof your attic?
The first step in rodent proofing is figuring out where the little pests are getting in at. When it comes to rodents they can squeeze in through the smallest openings. If their head can fit through a hole their whole body will. This makes it very important for us to find every hole. Even the ones that are only the size of a dime. In some cases this will require removing and replacing the old insulation. Often times rodents will find holes under the insulation and burrow through the insulation. Once we have found every possible area they are getting in at we will start rodent proofing. This is done by using special materials to plug these wholes. In some cases we will use steel wool or wire mesh. Rodents can chew through almost anything but they can not chew through metal. This is why in most cases just plugging the whole with just any material will not work permanently. This may also mean we will advise in covering vents in your attic with wire mesh. It is common for rodents to squeeze in through vents.
