Rats On Your Roof In Memphis TN

Professional Rat Removal In Memphis TN - Are Those Roof Rats?

Do you hear running and squeaking noises in your attic or even on your roof?  If you hear these noises mostly at night, then you just might have roof rats.

Roof rats get their name from their tendency to enter your home through your construction gap, which is the gap between your shingles and the side of your home.  

Checking your roof should always be included when assessing repairs that need to be made to your home.  If you 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 amount of time.

Rat Exterminators In Memphis TN - Fire Hazards?

Chewed electrical wiring is a major concern when it comes to roof rats.  Damage to the insulation of wires can cause electrical shortages or sparks which create a house fire if flammable materials close by catch a spark. Chewed wiring from animals are a leading cause of house fires.
 
Rats will also chew into your HVAC and duct work when making nests. Nests are often made of flammable materials that can also cause a fire that can then vent throughout your entire home. Not only do rats create hazardous situations, but the damage they cause can be very expensive in the long run.

DIY Rat Removal In Memphis TN - How To Get Rid Of Rats

Some of the things to look for to know if you have roof rats are golf ball size holes; and chew marks along the corners of your home, ground vents, and around your roof line. Keep tree branches trimmed away from the roof of your home so rats, not to mention squirrels, are unable to jump from the trees onto your roof. Make sure that any bushes around your home are trimmed away from the sides of your home to reduce the natural hiding places for rats to nest in.

Avoid feeding your local wildlife since food is one of the things that  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 happen to feed your pets outside.
