Milwaukee Rat Removal Tip: What kind of damage do rats cause in the attic?
Rats are mostly considered to be the most destructive of invasive critters that may come into your home. This is because rats are relentless chewers who will chew into just about everything that they can sink their little rodent teeth into. These animals like to be in secluded places where they can stay out human reach and live comfortably all the while going out to eat from the kitchen or pantry and then coming right back into their hiding places. Some of their preferred hiding places include within walls and in the attic.
Rats, being synonymous with damages, will most likely turn your attic upside down before you realize what's happening. Some of the damages that you will notice in your attic include chewed up insulation. Rats can not only make holes in the insulation material but they will also make tunnels in there as well. The same will be replicated with any electrical wires where they will eat up all the insulating rubber or plastic around them, effectively leaving the wires exposed and increasing the risk of fire hazards.
Other than that, rats will leave a lot of droppings and urine in the attic. These will stain all over the attic floor and even the ceiling that is right below the attic. Continued droppings and urine deposition will cause the materials to start rotting and even the development of fungi that find the feces to be a good breeding ground. In case there are water pipes running through the attic, these too may be chewed into causing leaks that may spread fast into the rest of the house. This kind of situation will eventually cause distress to the integrity of the materials used in building, posing greater risks of the ceiling caving in.
Any items that may be stored in the attic will also be eaten into by the rats. Some people use their attics to store old unused items and these will be prime chewing material for rats.
The only way to prevent such damage from befalling your attic is to first seal off all possible entry points through which rats may come into the attic. These include the very narrow spaces that you may want to rule out as too small for the rats.
Constantly checking the attic for possible infestation by rats will also serve you properly. While checking, you will need to look for the above mentioned signs to know if there are rats already there.
Cleaning out the attic every once in a while will also help to prevent the rats from coming to cause damages. Calling in professionals as soon as you notice a rat in the house will also help you manage the situation without having to replace an entire ceiling section for instance.
When it comes to rats, prevention is better than cure too. You should therefore take every precaution available and keep out these annoying rodents before the whole situation becomes unmanageable.
