Do you hear running and squeaking noises on your roof or even in your attic? If you hear these sounds mostly at night, then you might have roof rats.
Roof rats get their name because your construction gap offers easy entry. That is the “builder’s gap” between your shingles and the side of your house.
Inspecting your roof should always be included when assessing repairs needed to your home. If you see or hear something running around on your roof, you should have the roof checked as quickly as possible. Rats can do a great deal of damage to a home in an extremely short amount of time.
If you think you have roof rats, there are some things you can check out. Look for small holes or chew marks on the corners of your house. Besides ground vents and garage doors, rats will also chew on soffits and along your roof line into your construction gap. Remove any overhanging tree branches to prevent the rats from dropping down onto your roof. Make sure that any bushes around your home are trimmed . Keep your trash tightly secured, and remove uneaten pet food.
Also, it is not a good idea to feed local wildlife. Easy access to food is one of the things that will attract rats to your property, and as a common food source for larger wildlife, these rats will attract raccoons, opossums and other species.
