How do rats get in the attic?

Rats are very good at finding their way into the more inaccessible parts of people’s homes. When rats move into a property, they will often secrete themselves behind walls and build nests in dark, warm attics. If you can identify how they are accessing your attic, you can prevent more rats from moving in and set traps by any ingress and egress points.How do rats get in the attic?

Rats can squeeze through narrow gaps with ease. They aren’t quite as good as mice in this regard; rats lack the same ability to compress their bodies. However, rats can get through gaps that look much narrower than the rat’s bodies.

If you can hear rats scurrying about in your attic, or you actually see them when you go to investigate, working out exactly how they’ve managed to gain entry makes it much easier to clear them out. In some cases, rats will gain entry to the ground floor of a home and then make their way to the attic. However, there are also several ways that they can gain access to the attic directly. For example, rats are much better climbers than many people realise, and they often get into attics by climbing trees and running along branches that finish near the roof of a property.

Whenever you suspect a rat infestation in your attic, you should investigate immediately; the sooner you deal with an infestation, the easier it is to clear it out completely. Finding the entry point that rats are using and sealing it off will prevent more rodents from getting in and exacerbating the issue. It’s often easier to begin your search in the attic and work your way backwards. If you find a hole in your attic walls or floor that looks like a likely entry point for rats, seal it up and try to trace it back to the source.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
