Any wildlife technician will tell you that the most common and most destructive species to enter your home is the Rat. Rats constantly chew to keep their teeth filed down, or else they would starve to death. As a result, they will chew anything and everything they can find, especially your wiring!
Chewed wires by animals are a leading cause of house fires in the United States. We take this situation very seriously, so when performing an inspection on a property with possible rodent or squirrel damage, our technicians always check the wiring in the attic. If you suspect that you may have squirrels or rats, please contact an electricial first. And then call Apex Wildlife Control. We will quickly rid your home of those dangerous pests!
Roof rats and Norway rats are some of the most dangerous and destructive animals to have on your property. A Norway rat a lighter brown color, larger and tends to live in crawl spaces and the lower areas of your home. A Roof Rat is smaller and darker, and are named for their tendency to enter your home through your construction gap. The construction gap is often called builder’s gap, and is located in the space where your shingles meet the side of your home. This gap is left there to allow the attic to breathe, but unfortunately many home builders leave these gaps unsecured so that squirrels and rodents can squeeze through and enter your attic.
Both Norway Rats and Roof Rats are known for their excessive chewing which helps to regulate the size of their teeth. Unless rats chew constantly, their teeth can grow up to SIX INCHES long in a year!
