Pest & Rodent Control

What Problems Do Rodents Cause?

Like many other rodents, rats and mice are known to chew on wooden furniture, wires, and even pipes. This can lead to broken items, live wires, fires, and devastating water leakages. Rodents also multiply very quickly, so you’ll want to get rid of them the moment you realize they’re in your home. The picture below is an example of a home that did not address their rodent situation when first noticed.

Can You Use Home Remedy Or Commercial Repellents?

Unfortunately, both home remedies and commercially sold repellents are faulty. They can’t guarantee the removal of the animals, and they’re typically a waste of time and money. That’s why you should call a professional wildlife removal company like East Tennessee Wildlife Management instead, as professionals will be able to guarantee what these repellents can’t.

Rats In Your The Attic Is A Common Area

For most people, the thought of rats scurrying around overhead is too much to bear. However, for the rats, attics present an ideal location to nest. Attics are safe and secure from predators. Food is easily accessible, whether inside the house or nearby. And attics remain comparably warm throughout the year. That means rats can have brood upon brood in comfort and security.

Potential Damage From Rats In An Attic

Inside attics, many important aspects of a house are hidden away, including wiring, plumbing, and insulation. Rats are capable of chewers and will gnaw into electric wires, pipe insulation, or building insulation to build their nests.

They’re also well-known carriers of disease. Prolonged exposure to rats will contaminate your attic with feces putting your health or your family’s health at risk. They may even give your pets fleas, ticks, or mites.
