Do you have rats and mice in your insulation? If you have found evidence of rats or mice in insulation you need to take action right away.
When rats and mice nest in your attic, they can quickly ruin your insulation with urine and feces. This leaves a terrible smell that attracts other rodents and encourages mold and bacteria. Sanitation is not a rat’s biggest concern, so these animals thrive in the dirtiest of conditions.
And just because rats are living in your insulation does not mean that they will stay there. Rats and mice will travel throughout your entire home or property. They can climb up and squeeze into just about any area. They can also travel through the spaces in your walls and your air ducts.
Have you seen rat or mouse droppings around your home, in your bedroom or even your kitchen? Nothing makes you feel more unsettled than finding out there were rats and mice in your kitchen cabinets. That’s where we store our dishes, food, and everyday household items you use. That means you have been touching and transferring all the bacteria rats carry around your home. You may even be ingesting it when you eat off of your plates.
Rats are known to carry many diseases, not to mention ticks and fleas. Their droppings contain an incredible amount of bacterial, and the dust from dried rodent feces can be carried through out your home through your ventilation. Inhaling this filth can make you and your family extremely sick.
Do you suspect that rats and mice may be chewing your wiring? Rats and mice can be some of the most destructive and sneaky wildlife there is. Rats and mice are so quiet that they can do a lot of damage before you even realize they are even in your home!
Squirrels, rats and mice must chew constantly in order to keep their teeth filed down enough to eat, or they would starve to death. If rats did not chew constantly, their teeth would grow over SIX INCHES long in just a year.
Chewed wiring is a leading cause of house fires in the United States. If you think you may have squirrels, rats or mice, please contact an electrician immediately. And then call Apex Wildlife Control. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your home for rat damage and provide you with a comprehensive inspection report that will list the areas where the rats are entering your home, and how to seal these areas.
Rats and mice can also easily chew through your water pipes. Depending on the size of the hole and the water pressure, it could create a slow small leak, or the pipe could burst to flood your home. When the leak is small, it may not be noticeable for a long time.
Leaking water can soak through the wood, insulation, and eventually through the walls. Once it has soaked through the walls the water damage could be irreparable. If this happens you would need to cut the wall out to prevent mold.
