Animals In The Attic

Are animals are living in the attic of your house? Raccoons R Us in West Palm Beach, FL provides helpful advice and strategies to safely remove the wildlife from your attic, Raccoons R Us can fix any damage they have caused, and prevent the problem from happening again. The Eastern Gray Squirrel is the most commonly found nuisance animal in attics across America. If you've got a critter in your your attic, it's likely a squirrel. An attic is like a big-hollow tree to to a squirrel - a great place to live in, raise young in, use insulation for nesting material, and chew on wood and electrical wires!

What Kind of Noise Do They Make?

If you hear noises during the daytime, you've probably got squirrels. Squirrels are most active in the morning and evening, so most people report hearing the sounds at that time. Squirrels are fast and light, so much of the noise sounds like fast scurrying or running, usually in the attic, near the edge of the roof, and sometimes in the walls or chimney. Call Raccoons R Us in West Palm Beach, FL for our squirrel and bat removal service.

How Did They Get in My Attic?

They either chewed their way in, or they took advantage of an existing hole or gap in the architecture. Unscreened vents, both gable vents, roof vents, and soffit vents make great entry points. Squirrels almost always enter the house somewhere at roof level.

How Do I Solve the Problem?

As with any animal, the best method is trapping, removal, and relocation of the squirrels. In some cases, exclusion with one-way exclusion doorwill work 97% of time. I, the owner of Raccoons R Us, designed the tunnling system 34 years ago and over 400 companies are using it at this time.

How to Prevent New Squirrels in the Future?

The most important step-once all the squirrels are gone, seal shut all the entry points with steel wire which rodents can't chew through. It's also a good idea to clean the attic and remove the nesting material and dropping.

Mice and Rats in the Attic

Rats and mice are very common animals in attics, throughout much of the country. Roof Rats in particular are common in attics in warmer areas, and Norway Rats in cities. Mice are common in many areas as well. These small rodents can fit though tiny entry holes and infest an attic in large numbers. As rodents, they cause chewing problems, and can chew on electrical wires. They also spread diseases and often climb down from the attic, down the walls, and into the house, in search of food in the kitchen or pet bowls.

How Did They Get in My Attic?

Almost anywhere! Any small opening in the house from the foundation to the top of the roof. In fact, they can even get in through sewer pipes if the water doesn't propery block the pipes. If you've got any openings, even as small as a quarter, rats will find their way in, and mice only need a smaller hole. Call Raccoons R Us in Jupiter, FL for our animal removal and raccoon remval services today.

How Do I Solve the Problems?

As with any animal, the best method is trapping the rats. Snap traps are the best, in my opinion. Cage traps aren't practical. Poison is a very bad idea and very ineffective! Glue boards are inhumane and dont work well. Raccoons R Us animal wildlife & bee removal will come in and seal the house from top to bottom with a 5 year GUARANTEE.
