In a warm, humid state like Florida, the quality of your home’s insulation could be the difference between a properly air conditioned living space or a sky-high energy bill. Unfortunately, rats, mice, and other wildlife will often invade attics to use insulation as material for their nests, leaving your home to the mercy of the weather.

Expensive electricity bills won’t be your only issues when critters get into your attic, however. From ripping up your insulation to leaving stains and foul odors with their waste, animals can cause serious property damage. They also carry parasites, such as lice and fleas, that can endanger the health of you and your family.

Learn more about the critters determined to destroy your insulation and how Critter Control of Tampa can prevent them from harming your family and property. If you’re already discovered wildlife ruining your attic’s insulation, give our team of experts a call.

Common Pests Drawn to Insulation in Tampa

Tampa residents and visitors aren’t the only ones who enjoy the city’s mild climate. From field mice to Norway rats, Tampa is home to a variety of rodents ready to invade your living space. Roof rats, for example, use their small size and climbing abilities to squeeze into homes and businesses through holes as small as a quarter.

Even if entry ways into your property are too small, roof rats and other rodents can use their large incisors to gnaw a hole large enough for them to fit through. Larger wildlife may sneak into your attic through damaged shutters or vents.

Before they find their way into your attic to tear up your insulation, critters may wander around your backyard or around your garbage cans in search of food. Keep an eye on the following animals around your property:

  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Squirrels
  • Raccoons
  • Opossums

Signs of an Attic Infestation

It’s not unusual to realize you have critters in your attic until it’s too late. Many of the animals determined to raid your attic are nocturnal, which means they’ve most active while you’re sleeping soundly below them. If you hear squeaks, scratching, pattering feet, or other unusual sounds in your attic around dawn or dusk, it’s likely that you have an infestation.
