How Do I Get Rid of Rodents in My Attic?

Your attic can hold a lot of things, but rodents should never be one of them. Rodents, like rats, mice and squirrels, are notorious carriers of dangerous diseases. If they manage to infest your property, they can potentially expose you and your family to serious health complications and to cause severe damage to the infrastructure of your home.

Therefore, as soon as you suspect there are rodents in your attic, get rid of them by following these rodent removal tips.

Keep Your Attic Clean

Rodents are often most attracted to places with lots of hiding spaces, and a messy attic fits that description. One great method for keeping rodents out of your attic is to keep the space clean and organized. It is even possible that if you clean up your attic and get rid of potential hiding spaces, the rodents may vacate your attic and move on in search of more discreet shelter.

Try Rodent Traps

If you tell someone, “I have rodents in my attic,” they’re probably going to tell you to buy some traps from the hardware store. While this is something that you can most definitely try, you may come to find that it is ultimately not the most effective method of rodent removal. However, if you do try traps, be sure not to leave live food as bait. Most foods, especially cheese, will go rancid before the rodents are anywhere near the trap, which may attract ants and cause an entirely new pest problem in your attic.
