What overwinters in your attic? You’d be surprised at the things we have found in attics. Perhaps the most surprising pest – although rare – are snakes, including rattlesnakes. The pest with the most destruction are often bats. Not that bats chew up things like rodents do or pull out insulation like the bigger mammals do – Racoons, etc., but because they go unnoticed for so long that by the time their presence is detected the pile of guano and amount of urine have built up to the point where wood is rotting.
What Is In Your Attic?
It is prudent to have an attic inspection at least once per year. This allows one of our professionals to discover pests before the damage becomes too great. Summer is a great time to determine if bats are roosting in your attic, because many of the bats have migrated away from the area so any population that remains can find other roosting sites outside.
Bats play a huge and beneficial role to homeowners and farmers. They eat their weight in insects each night. For that reason, we do not destroy bats, but simply coax them into finding a new home.
Late Spring & Summer Attic Pests
Late spring and early summer is the time of year when birds hatch. Rattlesnakes and other snakes have no problem climbing into trees and then getting onto your roof where they can find their way into your attic. Summer is also a perfect time to look for damage caused by larger creatures such as squirrels and raccoons that are looking for winter housing. While we do not repair your roof, we can repair some pest damage and remove existing populations of pests, such as rodents, snakes, and birds.
