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. Discovering rats or mice inside of your home is never pleasant. It's always terrible to hear what families have endured because they were unsure how to fix the situation.
What’s even worse is when you know there is something in the attic or walls and can't see what it is. This is what makes Apex Wildlife Control so amazing. We have trained professionals who know just what to do to find out what is in your home. We also know how to solve your rat and mice problems.
There are a few things to always keep a lookout for whether you hear noises in your home or not. Always look around your soffits and roof line for any small holes or chew marks. Those are signs of wildlife that has already gained entrance to your home or they are trying to. Make sure you aren’t leaving any food lying around inside or outside of your home. This especially includes your pet's food because it is the main attractant to rats and mice. It shows that you have a continual food source that they can live off of.
Rats and Mice will reproduce more rapidly than just about any other wild animal. A female rat will go into heat every 4 days. The gestation period for rats is 21 to 23 days and their litter is around 6 to 12 young. Once the female gives birth, she can breed again 1 to 3 days after having her litter. This shows just how quickly a few rats can grow into a major infestation in a very short amount of time!
These juvenile rats will mature around a month and are fertile once they reach 3 months of age. Did you know that just two rats can produce up to 1500 babies in a single year? That's right, just those two rats! And their offspring an produce even more. This is how a rat infestation can happen quickly in homes and businesses. Rats and mice can quickly overwhelm a single home. It is always best to address the problem as soon as you notice any signs of wildlife on your own property.
Once rats or mice have found a good food source, they will be looking for a safe quiet place to call home. More often than not, this means your insulation. Attic insulation is soft, warm, and protects them. It is also a great place to build a nest for their young.
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 travel through the spaces in your walls and your air ducts.
The worst part is rats and mice urinate and defecate in insulation. This leaves a heavy smell that attracts other rodents and encourages mold and bacteria. Sanitation is not their biggest concern, so they thrive in the dirtiest of conditions. Rats and mice are the reasons millions of people died from the plague. Although we have advanced technologically since the outbreak of the plague, we can still get extremely ill from the bacteria rats carry around with them.
Apex Wildlife Control offers an interior and exterior inspection for commercial and residential properties. A technician will inspect your attic or crawl space and look for fecal droppings to determine the species.
He will also check for chewed wiring, damage to your HVAC, duct-work, and of course to see if there is damage to your insulation. All damage will be documented with photos and provided to our client. The technician will then inspect the exterior of your home, looking for all possible and actual entry points. Afterward, the technician will provide a detailed estimate to seal your home and trap the wildlife.
If there is extensive damage to your insulation from rat and mice urine and feces, an attic restoration may be necessary. While Apex Wildlife Control does not do attic restorations, there are several contractors available on Angie's List or Next Door who are available for this type of service.

Fort Knox Guarantee:
Are you worried that you will invest a large amount of money to protect your home from wildlife and not be completely covered? At Apex Wildlife Control we completely cover you! When a customer has our company perform full exclusion and trapping, we Guarantee against Wildlife Re-Entry for a full year. Our Fort Knox Guarantee covers not only the areas that we sealed but your entire home. This means that if an animal chews or damages an area of your home in an area that wasn't sealed in the first year following exclusion we will trap and seal that area for no cost up to $1000.
If we completely seal the property we can guarantee against re-entry. The way we seal and trap together we can guarantee the removal of the wildlife. Once we seal your home the animals must go to our traps for a food source.
At Apex Wildlife Control, we also offer a fecal cleaning and deodorization service. Due to the large amount of bacteria and disease in rodent feces and urine, this type of job is best left up to a professional. Our technicians can have your home feeling clean and fresh again in a few short hours.
However, if your insulation is ruined then we will let you know this upfront. Our company does offer fecal cleanup, but we do not currently offer attic restorations. An attic restoration may be required if you have heavily soiled insulation from rat fecal and urine.
So if you have feces and urine from rodents living in your insulation, give us a call today! Our skilled technicians are here to help!
