Have your attic inspectedMost people would rather ignore their attic altogether than spend any time in it. Why would anyone like to be in a dark, swelteringly hot place with no air flow? Even in the cooler winter months when the attic is more pleasant, not many people have a reason to go up there beyond storing their Christmas decorations. But, something you must realize is that when your attic is more bearable to you, it is also a better habitat for invasive pests. Stay on your guard by considering an attic inspection for the three following reasons.

You Hear Scratching, Scuttling, or Squeaking

If you happen to hear any of these noises coming from your attic, the worst thing you can do is ignore them. Most likely, you will hear noises at night when rodents are more active. Depending on what type of rodent is in your attic, you might hear noises ranging from faint peeping to grunting. Repeated instances of the noises are a surefire sign you need an animal control professional to inspect the attic.

You Have Seen Rodents Outside Your Home

While mowing the lawn or gardening, you might have noticed some rats scurrying around your hedge or bushes. Maybe there’s a squirrel that always seems to be hanging around every time you go outside. These observations could mean that there are rodents living in your attic, or that they could be trying to find a way into your house.

You Notice Signs of Rodent Damage

Make a quick trip up to the attic with a flashlight to see if you can detect any signs of rodent activity. Pay particular attention to the insulation and exposed wooden beams near the floor. If you’ve had rodents, some parts of the insulation could be torn up and collected into a nest, and portions will be riddled with feces and urine. Any wooden structures could also bear signs of chewing or scratching.

You Haven’t Had an Inspection in a While

If it’s been a few years since you last had anyone check out your home or attic, then there’s no better time for an inspection. The best way to protect your home from rodents is to keep them out in the first place. Keep on top of home maintenance and have your attic inspected by a rodent control professional to ensure that it is pest-proof.
