Things that go bump in the night

That’s not ole Saint Nick making noises above your head. If you are experiencing noises coming from the attic, chances are you have some unwanted guests. Rodents have a tendency to move inside as our nights get cooler. Insulation and tight confines make for great nesting sites.

Noises at night generally means you have roof rats. They can damage wiring, plumbing and wood, not to mention interrupting your sleep. They key to managing rats is exclusion, identifying their entryways and sealing them up. Strategic placement of traps will rapidly eliminate rats that have set up residence in your attic.

Trimming trees away from the house will help prevent roof rats from gaining access to your attic. Additional recommendations include storing pet food in tight metal containers in a secure location and eliminating areas where rats can find shelter.
