    Are rodents or pests living in your home? Do you hear faint scratching or scurrying around in your ceiling? Or strange sounds throughout the night? It’s more likely that you have rodents or other animals living in your home, not that it’s haunted. Critters living in your attic are definitely alarming, but with our professionals, we can pest-proof your home and make sure they never return!

    Signs You Have an Animal Infestation

    If you aren’t 100% certain that you have a rodent or rat infestation, but you are afraid to check your attic or crawl space, here are some signs to look out for:

    • Animal droppings
    • Squeaking noises
    • Scurring or scratching sounds
    • Damaged insulation
    • Chewed walls and wires
    • Nesting
    • Grease and dirt smudges

    How Do Animals Get Into Your Home?

    Pests and rodents can squeeze themselves into the tiniest holes, cracks, or crevices in your home. All holes and cracks, no matter how small, is an invitation for the critters to make a home in your attic.

    They can climb trees that are near your attic, but also enter through other ways such as holes in your roof, through your garage and into the walls where they can nest in your warm attic insulation. Getting your attic rodent-proofed is the only way to keep them out permanently.

    Attics Attracts Animals and Pests

    Attics are warm and convenient for rodents and other animals because they are attempting to escape the cold. That box of Christmas decorations is the best and coziest place to curl up into. Even worse, they will crawl into your fuzzy, warm insulation and make a nest for their family! This is why a professional rodent removal service is necessary to locate all points of entry and rodent proof your attic.

    Insulation is the perfect place for rodents to breed in, as attics are safe havens for pests. It’s dark, quiet, and people rarely are in it. Regardless of why rodents and pests love attics, Attic Projects remove the waste and damage that they leave behind after rodent-proofing, making sure that the rodent problem is eliminated for good.

    How Pests and Rodents Can Damage Your Home

    If you think a tiny little mouse is too cute and won’t do too much damage to your attic, you are wrong. The little rodents can do thousands of dollars worth of damage to your attic or home.

    They are chewers and will chew through any and everything. From drywall to electrical wires to plastic containers, our professionals have seen it all! If you have chewed electrical wires, they can be an extreme fire hazard, and with all that insulation in attics mixed with frayed wires, can be extremely frightening!

    Once there is one hole that rodents enter though, more and more will enter, as well as water. This could lead to mold issues. 

    Rodents also urinate and defecate in their living areas — in this case, your attic — and their waste is extremely toxic for humans. 

    Most times if there is a rodent infestation, you will need to replace all the insulation in your attic. That’s why pest control is a crucial part of keeping your home intact.

    Are Rats Really Harmful to Your Health?

    Rodents can carry harmful bacteria, dangerous diseases, and allergens that cause respiratory issues and illnesses. If you find rodents in your home, you need to get the problem eradicated right away!

    Rodents and their infectious diseases should not be taken lightly. The diseases can lead to fatal  respiratory problems for humans. Mice and rats can carry and spread 35+ diseases. Whether you are handling alive or dead rodents, feces, urine, bites, or saliva, you have to be extremely careful and cautious — which is why it should be left to the professionals.

    Rodents that are infected, can infect people with fleas, mites, and ticks! Some even carry ringworms and tapeworms that people can contract.

    The most common diseases that are transmitted include:

    • Hantavirus 
    • Salmonellosis 
    • Leptospirosis 
    • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis

    Although mice and other small animals can seem cute, they are hazardous to your health.

    Why You Shouldn’t DIY Rodent Removal

    Removing harmful decaying rodents, or live rodents, without the proper equipment, can be harmful. Rodent removal should not be your Saturday DIY project. Poisons and traps are only temporary and won’t prevent the rodents from returning.

    Only professionals can find every point of entry and seal them for good. Our rodent removal and rodent-proofing specialists in Orange County and San Diego use state-of-the-art cleaners and sprays that will sanitize the germs and bacteria that the rodents carried into your home and left behind in their urine and feces. When you are suffering from a rodent infestation, ridding your home of the rodents yourself is strongly recommended against.

    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.
