Do you hear running noises across your roof or scratching sounds in your attic? If you hear these sounds mostly at night, then you probably have roof rats.
Roof rats get their name from their tendency to enter your home through the construction gap. This is the opening between your shingles and the side of your house.
Routine checking your roof should always be included when assessing repairs that need to be made to your home. If you hear something running around on your roof, you should have your roof inspeted as quickly as possible. Roof rats are capable of doing a great deal of damage to a home in an extremely short amount of time.
If you think you may have roof rats, there are several things you can check for. Look around the exterior of your home for golf ball size holes. Look for chew marks along the edges of your house, soffits, and around your roof line. Keep tree branches trimmed away from the roof so rats are unable to jump from the trees onto your roof. Make sure that any shrubbery around your home is trimmed back and is not up against your foundation.
Avoid feeding your local wildlife since a food source is one of the things that will attract rats and other wildlife. Remove any leftover food that is not cleaned up by your pets at feeding time if you feed your pets outside.
