Rodent Proofing

Preventing rodents from getting into your home is our #1 priority.

Why do rats and pests make nests in attics?

Animals, rodents in particular, are creatures of opportunity and naturally look for a safe space to live and breed. While looking for shelter they will seek out any small hole, gap, or other entry point leading into your attic. In order to rid yourself of rodents permanently it is crucial to close these entry points in order to eliminate rodent activity and prevent the return of these pests in the future.

Rodent Proofing - Entry Denied

Attics and crawlspaces can be places of refuge for rodents, squirrels, birds and other pests. But only when they’re accessible. When rodent proofing your home we thoroughly inspect it -inside and out- then use professional grade sealant and steel mesh to properly and effectively seal all entry points. Our experienced technicians will seal every gap, crack, and crevice while still allowing for maximum natural air-flow.

Reasons to Rodent Proof your home

  • Setting traps isn’t a permanent solution. It may help, but it won’t solve the real issue of your home being vulnerable to rats and mice due to its many portals of entry. Once the traps are removed, the volume of rats will return to what it was, and perhaps get worse.
  • Poison is dangerous to humans and pets. Poisoning these unwanted visitors isn’t a smart or safe option. Plus, if they die in your attic or crawl space they can create an unsanitary condition in your home while leaving behind a foul odor.
  • Entry points can be hard to find. Since rodents can contort their bodies and squeeze through extremely tight spaces, entry points can be as small as a quarter. They can be found at various structural points in your home, like your roof, the inside of your attic, around the perimeter of your home, and in your crawl space. We are experts at locating these hidden entry points and sealing them without affecting your home’s natural ventilation.
  • Rats and mice can carry and spread a multitude of diseases. Hantavirus, The Plague, Salmonella, Lassa Fever these are just some of the infectious diseases they can harbor and bring into your home. The only way to keep them out is to seal all possible points of entry. See our attic cleanup page for a complete list of diseases carried by rats.
  • Rodents cause millions of dollars in damage to electrical systems and buildings every year. Rats have a tendency to gnaw anything and everything in site. This includes electrical wires, wood, insulation, and more. Many have learned the hard way that it’s better to be proactive before any damage occurs.

What makes them come to nest?

In the summer rodents and other pests seek shelter from the heat. In the winter they seek shelter from the cold and rain. Once inside, your attic insulation serves as a sort of breeding ground for rodents. This can lead to an infestation. That’s why it’s crucial to correctly close all entry points and eliminate all rodent activity.

Most people don’t realize that a 14 inch roof rat can squeeze itself into your home through a hole the size of a quarter. There may be more opportunity for rodents than you realize among the small cracks and crevices leading into your home. The more portals of entry, the more vulnerable it becomes to infestation. So every little crack truly matters. We understand that.

Hight Energy Bills

Studies have shown that a home with insufficient or damaged insulation costs more to heat and cool. A properly insulated home Lowers Your Energy Costs and requires less energy.
