Memphis Rat Removal Tip: What to do about a rat on the roof?

A rat in the home can be a very unsettling experience. A rat in the roof can be twice as bad. Rats will find small spaces through which they will squeeze and get into roofs, the spaces between the roof and the ceiling specifically.

Some of the signs that you may have a rat in your roof include noises in the roof as they scurry up and down looking for food. These noises tend to be more pronounced in the night which is the time when most of these animals will come out to scavenge for leftovers.

You may also notice the presence of stains on your ceiling. This is from the rat urine that they will leave all over the ceiling board. They have a lot of droppings as well though these may not stain the ceiling as much, unless they are in large quantities. Rats may also chew into the ceiling board and make holes in it.

One thing about having rats in the roof that can pose a challenge to the regular steps that you would have taken had the rat been in an easily accessible space like in the attic for instance. In order to remove them from the roof, you might need to employ some exclusion tactics by sealing off all exits from the roof leaving only one. This one exit is to be used to trap these rats from the roof.

This can be done by setting a trap at the exit using a trap with bait in it. Trapping rats that are in the roof is better than poisoning them because the rats may end up dying in places that are difficult to reach and the stench of rotting rat carcass may make your home unfriendly for living in. The baits to be used in trapping these bats need not to be poisonous for that reason.

Once you have caught the rats you can then hand them over to wildlife control to dispose of them properly. You can repeat the trapping process until you have removed all the rats. On the other hand, you can also opt to call in pest control services that are able to handle rodent and critter menace. They will be able to get these animals from your roof without much of a hassle and very efficiently too.

The best way to deal with rats is to prevent them from gaining access into any part of your house in the first place. When it comes to the roof, this can be done by sealing off all small holes and narrow spaces through which rats can squeeze through using caulk or wire mesh in the case of air ducts and vents. Making sure that there are no spaces in between the tiles will also keep these rodents away from your house. In addition, you can have food stored properly around the home to ensure that they do not get access to food and therefore move away into other places.
