Do you hear something running across your roof or squeaking noises 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 gap between your shingles and the side of your house which can be left open by builders. Routinely 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 checked as quickly as possible. Rats are capable of doing a great deal of damage to a home in an extremely short period of time.
Securing your home against rodent entry requires some proactive steps. If you have roof rats, check for any entry points around your house. Look for small holes and chew marks along the corners, the soffits, and around your roof line. Keep tree branches trimmed away from the roof of your home so rats are unable to drop from the trees onto your roof. Make sure that any shrubbery around your home is trimmed away from the sides of your home and are not up against your foundation.
Also, avoid feeding your local wildlife since a food source will attract rats and other wildlife to your property. Remove any leftover food that is not cleaned up by your pets at feeding time if you feed your pets outside.
