Rodents in the Attic
Rodents are no strangers to your attic. Because they can use their large incisors to gnaw through tough material, it’s easy for them to gain access to your attic through small holes in your roof and soffits. And the environment your attic creates for them is one they won’t want to leave. Warmth, shelter, and a dry place to sleep with access to food and water is the perfect place for rodents to call their home. If the rodents aren’t removed quickly by a professional removal service like Critter Control® Ft. Lauderdale, hundreds of dollars in damages can be done.
The best way to protect you family and home from damages is to catch the infestation before it grows out of control. And the sooner you locate them, the easier it will be to remove them. If you can catch the signs early on, you’ll have less of a headache to deal with.
- If your drywall is destroyed and attic insulation ripped, it is a good sign rodents are trying to make a nest in your attic.
- You can tell rodents are filing down their teeth if you find frayed electrical wiring around your home. Address this immediately, as it could lead to a fire.
- As rodents search for food and water, they’ll leave trails of feces and wet spots in their wake. Be sure to steer clear of them, as they could lead to the spread of disease.
