Cook County Wildlife Removal Tip:
What To Do About Rodent Activity In Attic - Rodent activity in the attic needs to be dealt with swiftly and efficiently. The unmistakeable sound of pattering claws and gnawing teeth means that these rodents are causing untold damage to your home. Although there are many home remedies and fail safe methods of dealing with rodents it is important to note that they do not work - no smell, noise, obstacle or light system will deter rodents from the task at hand - that is finding a warm, safe home for their family. It is well known that the first rodent to find its way into a home is often a pregnant momma rodent - which means you are dealing with a colony.

There is only one solution for dealing with rodent activity in the attic and that is to trap and remove well away from your property - otherwise they are likely to cause even more damage chewing their way back into their new accommodations. Setting a trap at the most popular exit and entry way used by the rodents and taking the time to correctly seal all other gaps, cracks and holes will mean that, over a number of weeks, you will be able to eradicate your rodent problem.
