About Pest Animal Syracuse and Our Services:
Rats in the attic are a serious threat to safety and health of the entire household. Regardless of the type
or the number of Syracuse rats, these rodents are capable of both compromising the infrastructure of a home and
transferring infections and deceases to humans and animals around them. There are several ways in which
rats manage to get inside of an attic. Whether the wooden structure is damaged or rotten, or nearby tree
branches allowed them to climb on top of the roof, once these animals find their way in, they are hard to
Signs of Syracuse rats in the attic show early in the case of infestation. You will know that rats have inhabited your attic, at first, by strange noises that come from your attic and walls. Second, you might experience power issues due to rats chewing on cables and wires. It could also happen that your cable TV and internet connection start glitching.
1. Determine rat entry spots
One of the most important steps to take when exterminating New York rats from your attic is to prevent the infestation from getting worse. You also want to prevent more rats from getting inside your attic after you have already got rid of them. To secure your home from getting infected multiple times, and also to be able to determine which spots in your home are rats using to get inside. Look for any holes and gaps in your attic and pay special attention to spots that are surrounded by rat feces. Once you manage to discover spots that rats have used to get inside your attic, seal all but one remaining hole. This hole will serve for rats who have maybe left their younglings behind to get back inside. Under any circumstances, you should not seal all the gaps in your attic because female Syracuse rats might not be able to reach their babies. If this happens, you will end up with dead rat corpses inside your attic or walls.
2. Determine the number and type of the rats
Estimating the size of the infestation is important if you want to remove all the existing rest. You are going to have to observe rats for several days and note details about their behavior. Note the number of Syracuse rats, presence of any pregnant females or rat babies if you want to be able to remove all of the rats from your attic. You will use this information to decide on a number of traps you want to buy, or if you even want to handle the removal by yourself or hire expert help. If you decide that there are too many New York rats for you to trap and remove by yourself, you can always hire an animal or pest removal company available in your area.
