    Signs Of An Animal Infestation

    Not certain if you have an animal infestation in your attic and too squeamish to check? Here are signs you might have animals in your attic:

    • Scurrying and scratching noises
    • Squeaking sounds
    • Animal Droppings
    • Chewed wires or walls
    • Disturbed insulation
    • Nests
    • Leaves, grass or other outdoor materials
    • Dirt or grease smudges

    How Do Rodents Get Inside The Attic?

    Rodents and other pests are masters at squeezing themselves through tiny holes, cracks, and crevices. Any little crack or hole is seen as an open invitation for a critter to come in and take up residence in your attic. 

    Rodents can climb trees, but can also enter your attic through other routes. They may find holes in your roof, or find a way into your garage and climb all the way up inside walls to nest in your warm attic insulation. Rodent proofing the attic is the only way to stop them from returning. 

    Your Attic Attracts Rats & Animals

    Rodents and other animals like your attic because it’s convenient and warm, often arriving when it’s to escape the cold. Your box of Christmas decorations is a cozy place to curl up or better yet, rodents love to get into the warm, fuzzy insulation and make a nest! 

    Insulation is also a great place for rodents to reproduce, as the attic is a safe haven for critters. It’s quiet, dark, and rarely do people enter it. Regardless of the reasons rodents love your attic, Attic Projects can remove the waste and damage left behind from a rodent infestation, then rodent-proof your attic, ensuring you have eradicated the rodent problem for good.

    How Rats Or Other Animals Damage Your Home

    You might think a cute little mouse couldn’t do much damage to your attic, but oh how wrong you are. Those little critters can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home.

    Rodents are chewers. They can chew through just about anything – from electrical wires to drywall to plastic containers. The professionals at Attic Projects have seen it all! Chewed electrical wires in your attic can be a fire hazard. Think of all that insulation in your attic and a frayed wire – frightening stuff!

    Holes in walls from chewing can entice other rodents to take up residence in your attic as well as allow water to enter, which then could lead to a mold problem.

    Rodents urinate and defecate on everything, and their waste is very harmful to humans.

    Most times, when there is a rodent infestation in your attic, all the insulation will need to be replaced.

    Rats & Your Health: What’s The Harm?

    Rodents carry dangerous diseases, harmful bacteria, and allergens that can cause illness and respiratory issues. If you discover rodents in your home, you should get the problem taken care of right away!

    Infectious diseases carried by rodents shouldn’t be taken lightly. These diseases can cause fatal respiratory issues in humans. It’s known that mice and rats can spread more than 35 diseases, through either the handling of alive or dead animals, rodent feces and urine, or bites and saliva.

    An infected rodent can also infect humans with fleas, ticks, and mites. Some rodents also carry ringworm and tapeworms that humans can contract.

    The most commonly transmitted diseases include;

    • Hantavirus
    • Salmonellosis
    • Leptospirosis
    • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis

    Although these critters may be cute, they are definitely a hazard to your health.

    Should I Remove Rodents Myself?

    Removing rodents from your attic is not a weekend DIY project. Traps and poisons are temporary and don’t actually prevent rodents from coming back. Plus, who wants to remove harmful decaying animals without the proper equipment?

    Only a professional can truly find all the points of entry and seal them up for good. Our professionals also use high-grade sprays and cleaners that remove and sanitize the germs and bacteria rodents carry and leave behind in their feces and urine. When suffering from a true rodent infestation, eradicating rodents in your attic yourself is not recommended.

    Professional Rodent Proofing

    What You Can Expect From Services And Solutions By Attic Projects

    If you notice unwelcome critters in your attic, the professionals at Attic Projects can rodent-proof the attic for you. Many homeowners go the route of using traps or poisons to remove current rodents, but that isn’t removing the source of the problem. Holes and cracks are where the rodents are coming in. If those entry points are not sealed, your problem is not gone.

    To truly rodent-proof your home, a professional will thoroughly search your attic, identifying all the entry points that critters are using to get access. These areas will be sealed off, so rodents or other animals will no longer be able to gain access to your attic.

    While the professionals rodent-proof your attic, they will remove any soiled insulation and inspect electrical wires, drywall, and other areas that could have been chewed. Our team employs innovative rodent proofing techniques to ensure your attic never has rodents again.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How do I know if I have rodents in my home?

    If you have a rodent infestation, you may hear sounds of scurrying or squeaking, see gnaw marks on electrical wires, have damaged insulation, or foul odors. If any of these sounds familiar, call Attic Projects right away for a free inspection.

    Is a rodent infestation dangerous to my health?

    Having rodents or other pests in your attic or crawl space can have a negative impact on your health. Rodents carry dangerous diseases and bacteria with them that could cause respiratory issues and other illnesses in you and your family. Common illnesses include hantavirus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis. 

    Why should I call Attic Projects about the rodents in my attic or crawl space?

    You should always call the professionals at Attic Projects to eliminate the rodents invading your home. We have the equipment necessary to humanely remove the rodents and keep them from coming back for good. Instead of just getting rid of pests, we also proof your crawl space and attic so they can’t come back. Most pest control companies only offer a temporary fix for your pest problem. 

    Does Attic Projects offer humane rodent removal?

    Yes! If you have rodents or other pests in your home, we will humanely remove them. The traditional method of poison does not offer a good solution for you or the animals in the home. Using poison to try and fix the problem could lead to the animal parishing and decaying in a place that cannot be reached. This method also exposes you, your family, and your pets to harmful toxins that could cause health issues or even be fatal.
