Do you hear squeaking and scurrying noises in your attic or running sounds on your roof? If you hear these noises during at night, then you might have roof rats.
Roof rats get their name because they tend to enter your home through the roof construction gap, which is the gap between your shingles and the side of your home.
Carefully checking your roof should always be included when assessing repairs that need to be made to your home. If you hear the sound of something running around on your roof, you should have it promptly inspected. Rats are capable of doing a great deal of damage to a home in an extremely short period of time.
Preventing a rat infestation in your home requires a proactive approach. Seal all entry points, even those as small as a dime, to deny rodent access. Maintain a clean environment. Promptly dispose of food waste and store food in rodent-proof containers. Keep overhanging tree branches trimmed back from your roof so roof rats are unable to drop from the trees onto your roof. Also, make sure any shrubbery around your house is trimmed away from the sides of your home and not up against your foundation.
Avoid feeding local wildlife in your yard since birdseed and pet food attract rats and other wildlife to your property. Pickup any leftover food that is not cleaned up by your pets at feeding time if you feed your pets outside.
