Your home is a place where you should feel safe and something you take pride in. Perhaps one of the worst scenarios for your home is a rodent infestation in the attic, crawl space, or even in the walls. Rodents can find many places within your home to hide, and detecting them may not always be so simple. Just the idea is enough to make anyone cringe. Having rodents and other pests take over your home can cause extended damage, unsanitary conditions, and foul odor. It can also impact your family's health by spreading disease.

- Giving you a permanent solution to your rodent infestation - guaranteed!
If you suspect a rodent infestation, contact Attic Projects right away to set up a free inspection. If confirmed, we will humanely remove the pests and prevent them from coming back.
Signs You Have a Rodent Infestation
Determining whether you have a rodent infestation can sometimes be tricky, especially if the pests are hiding out in places you may hardly see, including the attic, crawl space, or in your walls. However, there are some signs that may alert you to a problem.
One sign you may notice is the presence of rodent droppings, throughout your home. If you see rodent droppings, you should call Attic projects for a free inspection to determine the size of the infestation.
Rodents find many ways to get into your home, as they are able to squeeze through open spaces in your attic as small as a dime. Any gaps in your roof or foundation are a welcoming opening. Your home provides everything a rodent needs, including easy access, shelter, warmth, nesting materials (insulation), and perfect passage to the rest of the house. If you suspect an infestation, there are a few signs you should be on the lookout for.
Other signs of rodent infestation include:
- The sound of squeaking, scurrying or scratching
- Gnaw marks or evidence of chewed electrical wires
- Damaged insulation
- Smudges of dirt or grease
- Decreased airflow from air ducts
- Bad smells
Removing Rodents from Your Home is Vital
When rodents infest your home, it can be bad news for you, your family, and your home. If you assume you have a rodent problem, you do not want to put it off for another day. The longer the pests remain in your home, the more damage and harm can be caused.
Protect Your Home
An infestation is bad for homeowners due to the damage rodents, and other pests can cause to your home. They chew electrical wiring, destroy insulation, and gnaw on pipes. Over time, the damage to your home can become a major expense to fix. Without proper repair, the value of your home can plummet.
Rodents like to chew through installation, and as they do, they urinate and leave behind droppings. If your home has been infested with rodents, you may need your insulation removed and new installation installed due to damage and contamination.
Protect Your Health
Your home isn't the only thing at risk from an infestation. The health of you and your family could be in jeopardy. Rodents and other pests invading your home can lead to respiratory problems and trigger allergic reactions. They also carry with them dangerous viruses, such as the Hantavirus, which can then lead to the deadly respiratory disease, Hanta Pulmonary Syndrome. Pests also carry tapeworms and ringworms, which can then infect you, your family, and your pets.
The more rodents that infest your home, the more your family is at risk. Take care of your rodent infestation before it becomes a major problem.
Why Humane Rodent Removal?
Rats, mice, and other rodents live beside us, and so it is natural that they would want to make our home theirs. Although they don't mean us any harm, rodents can cause damage to your house and put your family's health at risk. This means if they are in your home, they need to go.
Killing the Rodents Does Not Solve Your Problem
Here at Attic Projects, we practice Humane Rodent Removal, both for the benefit of the rodents and yours. The biggest reason we practice humane rodent removal is to be sure the rodents do not come back. Simply exterminating the rodents in your home will not solve your problems and may even cause an even bigger issue.
We use a humane removal method for three main reasons:
Long-Term Solutions - Most lethal extermination methods do not offer a permanent solution, and exterminating the existing rodents does not keep more from returning. We practice not only humane removal but also rodent proofing. This offers a long-term solution to any rodent problem and encourages other rodents to leave the area, as there is benefit keeping them there.
Keeping You Safe - Our number one goal is to keep you and your family safe, and with the risks that come with using traps and poisons, we wanted to find a better solution.
Reduce Suffering - Many popular extermination methods can lead to prolonged suffering that can last from a few hours up to a few weeks.
The Problem with Traps and Harmful Poisons
Traps and poisons have long been a popular method of exterminating rodents, but they are not the most ideal.
Aside from the unnecessary suffering they cause on the animal and their ineffectiveness, they aren't good for you or your home either. These methods can also pose a risk to you, your family, and pets living in your home. Traps are unsightly, and poisons can cause illness or even death if accidentally ingested. This is a common occurrence that floods the lines of poison control every year.
Using traps and poisons in your home can also lead to rats and other rodents expiring within your walls, with no way to locate them and remove them. This is not something you want in your home.
Permanently Stop Rodents from Returning
If you want to stop rodents and other pests from entering your home and taking over your space, Attic Projects has the solution. We offer permanent rodent solutions. Once the rodents have been humanely removed, we proof your attic, crawl space, and all other entry points to prevent them from returning.

Most People Don’t Know They Have Rats in Their Attic
A rodent-infested attic is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. While the idea of critters in your home is enough to send shivers up your spine, these furry pests do much more damage than you would expect. From extensive property damage to foul odors to real health concerns, rats and other rodents carry the potential to negatively impact your home for years.
How to Spot a Rodent Infestation?
The first sign: spotting rodent poop anywhere in your home.
Droppings and rat poop could mean your home is dealing with an infestation. Rats and mice breed rapidly, meaning evidence of a few droppings could require a full-blown inspection to identify the scope of your home's rat problem.
Did you know one of the most common entrances for rats is through your attic?
Rats can squeeze through holes the size of a quarter, while mice can squeeze through spaces the size of a dime! Tiny gaps in your roof and foundation, help rodents scurry from the ground, up through your walls, and finally to your attic. Rodents love the attic for the warmth and shelter, burrowing and nesting in your insulation - while of course, leaving behind shocking amounts of feces.
The first signs of infestation in the attic include:
- Squeaking or scurrying noises, especially at night and frequently in the same areas.
- Scratching sounds while they create nests.
- Chewed electrical wires or gnaw marks.
- Disturbed insulation.
- Dirt or grease smudges.
Why You Should Consider Rodent-Proofing Your Home
For Your Home
The most obvious reason an infestation is bad news for homeowners is the damage they cause to your home. Rodents are known for chewing through electrical wires and gnawing on pipes. These issues may create significant repairs for homeowners. An infestation can also destroy your insulation. Rodents will often chew through your insulation and urinate and defecate in the material which may contaminate your insulation and home. In the case of an infestation, your insulation may need to be removed and new insulation installed.
For Your Health
These pests are a health hazard to you and your family. They bring in dangerous diseases as well as trigger allergic reactions and respiratory issues. A rodent-infested home is something that requires immediate action and should not be taken lightly.
Mice, rats, and other pests are known to be carriers of infectious diseases such as the Hantavirus, which can lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, a potentially fatal respiratory disease. These animals can carry Ringworm and Tapeworms, conditions which can become a health concern. Additionally, rodents in your home or attic can trigger allergic reactions, and, because they reproduce rapidly, it doesn’t take long for an infestation to contaminate your home.
Protecting Your Home
If your attic has been taken over by mice or rats, you should seek the services of a professional rodent proofing company to put a stop to the infestation. Not only do these critters cause a major freak-out every time they make an appearance, but their defecation also contains allergens which can result in respiratory issues like sinus inflammation and asthma when inhaled.
We Are Revolutionizing the Process
The conventional route of using traps and poisons may remediate the problem in the short-term, but it fails to address the issue in a lasting, sustainable fashion. Rodents are attracted to their own scent, so without cleaning and sanitation, the rats will just keep returning.
Not only that, but Attic Projects also takes the necessary measures to ensure your attic will remain rodent-free by locating and sealing-off their points of entry into your home.
Say Goodbye to Unsightly Traps and Harmful Poisons
Many people think using poisons or traps is the best approach to eliminate pests, but such a method can be really dangerous to you, your family members, and pets.
Though it acts as a temporary solution, it is by no means safe or even long-term. While traps are not dangerous, they only eliminate the existing pests instead of preventing new ones from entering your home. Traps or poison may lead to rodents crawling in between your walls and decomposing with no way to remove them.
How We Protect Your Home
Rodents enter through small crevices and spaces that are hard for you to locate and seal on your own. We track down the points of entry to your home to permanently shut the rodents’ path and prevent them from coming back into the less active spots in your home, such as the attic.
Attic Projects uses the right tools and key expertise to find these entry points and effectively shut them down permanently. We can leave your home ventilation system intact. We make use of innovative techniques and a team of expert technicians to expertly identify and seal all rodent entry points.
Take Action for Your Home and Health
A rodent-infested area is hazardous for human habitation. At Attic Projects, we realize the menace that rodents bring along, and also understand the importance of a healthy and clean home. If you are tired of finding damaged insulation, chewed-up electrical wires, and litter, then it is time to take the appropriate steps to prevent further damage.
