How to deal with rodents in the attic?

So How to deal with rodents in the attic? If you can hear strange noises coming from your attic that sound like small creatures scampering and scurrying about, you may have a rodent problem up there. But the potential consequences of rodents running loose in your attic is much more serious than just some strange noises now and then. Rodents can spread diseases, cause damage to your property and possessions by chewing through them, and even start a fire in your attic by biting through electric cables.

How to deal with rodents in the attic?

Rats are generally considered a more severe issue than mice, but having any kind of rodent in your attic isn’t ideal. If you think you’ve seen a rat in your attic, you should call in a professional pest control contractor to deal with the issue immediately. Once they have removed any live specimens from our home, you can focus on securing the space so no more rodents can follow them in. 

Mice are less of a concern than rats, but you still want them taken care of as soon as possible. As soon as you suspect an infestation, you should confirm it and call in a professional. If you can’t see any rodents in your attic, but you do notice any of the following signs, you should consult a pest control expert for advice:

– Droppings or urine

– Nests made from shredded paper, twigs, leaves, and other lightweight materials

– Evidence that insulation has been disturbed or destroyed or pieces have been torn off

– Unexplained sounds of movement or animal sounds, such as purring, whimpering or sharp vocal noises.

These are all common indications that you have rodents loose in your attic. If you find an individual rodent, you don’t necessarily need professional help; just make sure you secure your attic so no more rodents can get in. However, you need to remain vigilant for any indication that more rodents are hiding in the shadows.

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.
