Do you hear running sounds across your roof or squeaking noises in your attic? If you hear these sounds mostly during the night, you probably have roof rats.
Roof rats get their name because they usually enter a home through the construction gap along your roof line. This 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 something running around on your roof, you should have it checked as quickly as possible. Roof rats can do a great deal of damage to your home in a very short period of time.
Clients often call to ask how they can keep rats away from their property. First, get rid of the clutter in your attic or basement. Rats look for quiet places to hide. Make sure any shrubs around your house are trimmed away from the sides of your home and not up against your foundation. Remove any overhanging tree branches to prevent roof rats from dropping down onto your roof. Check for chew marks along the corners of your home, and around the soffits and roof line.
Also, avoid having outdoor food for wildlife, like bird feeders. Food sources in your yard will attract rats and other wildlife to your property. Be sure to pick up any leftover food that is not cleaned up by your pets if you feed them outside. Rats love a midnight snack!!
