Rats On Your Roof In Millington TN

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

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

Roof rats get their name because they usually enter your home through your roof area construction gap. This is the gap between your shingles and the side of your house.  

Checking your roof should always be included when assessing repairs needed to your home.  If you hear the sound of something running around on your roof, you should have it checked as quickly as possible. Roof rats are capable of doing a great deal of damage to your home in a very short amount of time.

Rat Exterminators In Millington TN - Fire Hazards?

The probability of chewed electrical wiring is a major concern when it comes to roof rats.  Damage to the wire insulation can cause electrical shortages or sparks. If flammable materials are nearby, a spark could ignite an attic fire.  Chewed wiring from wildlife is a leading cause of house fires in the U.S.
 
When making nests, rats will also chew into your HVAC and duct work. Their nests are often made of highly flammable materials. An attic fire can quickly travel throughout your entire home through your ventilation system. Rats not only create hazardous situations, but the damage they cause can be very expensive in the long run.

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

Keeping rats out of your home requires some positive steps.  If you think you have roof rats, check around your home. Look for chew marks along the corners of your house.  Check for small golf ball size holes at the soffits and around your roof line. Trim shrubs and trees away from your house, eliminating potential routes for rats to reach your roof. Regularly inspect and maintain your home’s exterior for cracks and gaps that could provide entry points.

Also, avoid feeding the local wildlife since food is one of the things that attract rats and other wildlife to your property.  Remove any leftover food that is not cleaned up by your pets if you feed your pets outside.
