With the temperatures starting to drop animals and rodents will start to look for housing. They sometimes find this housing in your crawl space or attic. I always tell my customers to look around the house for signs of openings that need to be sealed or blocked, to prevent animals and rodents from setting up house. We also will go out and check if they can't. I try not to put baits or poisons in the attic or crawl space because if a rodent dies it really stinks, snap traps and glue boards for rodents and cages for animals works best. It might be a little more costly but the results are better. After trapping the rodents or animals then it is time to seal up the openings they used to get inside to keep any future rodents or animals out. Inspecting these areas yearly is advised or in a regular pest control customers case we inspect quarterly.
