Even though it is a day from Halloween, 2020 kind of feels like its been Halloween all year doesn’t it? I hope everyone is well in your home and businesses.
While we are in what seems to be the second wave of this pandemic, pests are still looking to find a nice winter home (namely yours).
Even if you are home more than you were pre-pandemic, Mice, rats, squirrels and raccoons will all be attempting to move in rent free.
Here are some signs that you should look for if you suspect that you have been invaded.
- Noise in the walls and/or attic. This can be scratching, fighting, or in the case of raccoons, the heavy sound as if you have a dog in your attic.
- Look at your roof, roof vents, eavestrough and soffits. If any of these are bent, destroyed or have holes, its a good bet that something has come through.
- Look at any holes on the outside of the home. Is there a black residue around it? If there is it’s a good indication of a rodent getting in. The black residue is oil from the animal’s fur.
- How close are your tree branches to your home? If they are within 6 feet, both squirrels and raccoons can jump that far to get onto your roof. (I know but it’s true).
If any of these are happening, please give us a call to help.
