Well, it’s getting close to that time of year again when you will start hearing more thumps and bumps in your attic. When the nights start to get cooler, rodents will start looking for better accommodations, namely your attic.
While on a termite inspection for a realtor and good friend, Liz McCool of Re/Max Preferred of St Pete Bch, I chanced upon a network of runways that rats created while running about the attic.
You should be looking at a solid wall of insulation but constant rat activity has created a cool little habitrail in the insulation.
This was just a little pocket that was hollowed out, possibly to house their newborn “pups”.
The dark cylindrical on the right is proof positive that rats are in the attic. The dark object is not a Cheeto, it’s rat poop! (Of course it depends on what the rat has been eating, in that case, it may taste like a cheeto.)
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, rats are becoming somewhat more noticable with the coming cooler weather. Rats can cause a whole list of bad things for your heath as well as the health of your home.
