Cold Weather brings in the rodents.

Cold snaps usually cause the insect population to dwindle, but it also marks the time for rodents and animals to look for warmer homes. A thorough inspection of the perimeter of the home will show you areas that need to be filled in or sealed up. I have seen Roof rats coming from the cable wires or telephone lines to the roof and gaining access into the attic, I also notice them getting in under the garage doors, as well as the A/C lines going into the attic. The branches overhanging or touching the roof need to be trimmed away from the house by at least 2 feet. On some rare occasions they have been known to come in through the water lines. The only way to stop that would be to install a one way flap under the toilet. These things will help lower the possibility that you will have unwelcome guests this winter. If you need any other help, let me know.
