    Signs You Have A Rodent Infestation

    Determining whether you have a rodent infestation can sometimes be tricky, especially if the pests are hiding out in places you may hardly see. Some common places Attic Projects specializes in is finding rodents in the attic, crawl spaces, or even in walls. However, some signs may alert you to a problem. 

    One sign you may notice is the presence of rodent droppings throughout your home. If you see rodent droppings, you should call Attic projects for a free inspection to determine the infestation size. 

    Rodents find many ways to get into your home, as they can squeeze through open spaces in your attic as small as a dime. Any gaps in your roof or foundation are a welcoming opening. Your home provides everything a rodent needs, including easy access, shelter, warmth, nesting materials (insulation), and perfect passage to the rest of the house. If you suspect an infestation, there are a few signs you should be on the lookout for, and you should reach out to a rat and mice removal service like Attic Projects.

    Other signs of rodent infestation include: 

    • The sound of squeaking, scurrying or scratching
    • Gnaw marks or evidence of chewed electrical wires
    • Damaged insulation
    • Smudges of dirt or grease
    • Decreased airflow from air ducts
    • Bad smells

    Removing Rodents From Your Home Is Vital

    When rodents infest your home, it can be bad news for you, your family, and your home. If you assume you have a rodent problem like rodents in the attic, you do not want to put it off for another day. The longer the pests remain in your home, the more damage and harm can be caused. 

    Protect Your Home

    An infestation is bad for homeowners due to the damage rodents and other pests can cause to your home. They chew electrical wiring, destroy insulation, and gnaw on pipes. Over time, the damage to your home can become a major expense to fix. Without proper repair and service from a rodent exterminator, the value of your home can plummet. 

    Protect Your Health

    Your home isn’t the only thing at risk from an infestation. The health of you and your family could be in jeopardy. Rodents and other pests invading your home can lead to respiratory problems and trigger allergic reactions. They also carry dangerous viruses, such as the Hantavirus, which can then lead to the deadly respiratory disease, Hanta Pulmonary Syndrome. Pests can also carry tapeworms and ringworms, which can then infect you, your family, and your pets. 

    The more rodents that infest your home, the more your family is at risk. Take care of your rodent infestation before it becomes a major problem.

    Rodents like to chew through installation, and as they do, they urinate and leave behind droppings. If your home has been infested with rodents, you may need your insulation removed and new installation installed due to damage and contamination. 

    Why Humane Rodent Removal? 

    Rats, mice, and other rodents live beside us, and so it is natural that they would want to make our home theirs. Although they don’t mean us any harm, rodents can cause damage to your house and put your family’s health at risk. This means if they are in your home, they need to go. 

    Killing The Rodents Does Not Solve Your Problem

    Here at Attic Projects, we practice Humane Rodent Removal, both for the benefit of the rodents and yours. The biggest reason we practice humane rodent removal is to be sure the rodents do not come back. Simply eliminating the rodents with a rat exterminator will not solve your problems and may even cause an even bigger issue. 

    We use a humane removal method for three main reasons: 

    Long-Term Solutions – Most lethal extermination methods do not offer a permanent solution, and exterminating the existing rodents does not keep more from returning. We practice not only humane removal but also rodent proofing. This provides a long-term solution to any rodent problem and encourages other rodents to leave the area. 

    Keeping You Safe – Our number one goal is to keep you and your family safe, and with the risks that come with using traps and poisons, we wanted to find a better solution.

    Reduce Suffering – Many popular extermination methods can lead to prolonged suffering that can last from a few hours up to a few weeks. 

    The Problem With Traps And Harmful Poisons

    Traps and poisons have long been a popular method of exterminating rodents, but they are not the most ideal. 

    Aside from the unnecessary suffering they cause on the animal and their ineffectiveness, they aren’t good for you or your home either. These methods can also pose a risk to you, your family, and pets living in your home. Traps are unsightly, and poisons can cause illness or even death if accidentally ingested. This is a common occurrence that floods the lines of poison control every year. 

    Using traps and poisons in your home can also lead to rats and other rodents expiring within your walls, with no way to locate them and remove them. This is not something you want in your home.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    I have animals in my attic! How do you get rid of them?

    Pests love to reside in attics, from rodents to bats and insects like roaches – they all may be renting space in your attic. Droppings from these pests can have very adverse effects on your health. Also, pests chew holes in walls, destroy insulation, and chew through electrical wires.

    Our attic cleaning services can eliminate dust, mold, pests, and their byproducts. Removing all these contaminants from your attic can freshen your home and have you breathing easier again.

    How does dust and mold in the attic affect my health?

    Most attics can be very dusty. And dust can wreak havoc on your health. Dust is made of tiny particles of solid waste matter and can be lifted into the air in your home. Mold could also be lurking in your attic and make you very ill. Mold loves damp, dark places and can be extremely toxic. Signs of mold sickness include trouble breathing, irritated eyes, and even arthritis!

    How do I know if my attic needs cleaning?

    Most homeowners don’t know when they should clean their attics or if their attic even needs cleaning. We recommend a thorough cleaning of your attic every few years. Our attic professionals can tackle your attic cleaning job, so you don’t have to. Your attic may not be a living space but still requires cleaning like the rest of your home.

    Some signs of a dirty attic include: increased utility charges, health issues, odors, changes in home temperature, animal infestations.

    I feel sick. Why do I need an attic cleaning?

    Do you have a sore throat that won’t go away? Maybe you just can’t shake that cold that started in the fall. If you have unexplainable illnesses, colds or allergies that just won’t go away, it might be time to hire attic professionals to determine whether you need an attic cleaning.
