Don't hesitate: Just insulate!

Many different types of wildlife can infest attics and cause damage in New Jersey. Some common wildlife that may invade your attic include snakes, bats, rats, squirrels, and raccoons. If you have animals that have invaded your attic, it is important that you rid your attic of them. You will also need to replace and sanitize your insulation so that the animals do not return. Animals may cause severe damage if they are not removed, chewing through wires and leaving disease-causing droppings behind.

Signs That You Have Animals In Your Attic

If you have animals that have taken up residence in your attic, you will likely hear them. The sounds may be soft or loud, and you may hear the noises that they make. Depending on the species that is inhabiting your attic, they may be more active at night or during the day. Your pest control professional will help to identify what types of animals are living in your attic so that he or she can design the best treatment method.

What Your Professional Technician Will Do

Your pest management professional at A-Academy Termite & Pest Control will inspect your attic to determine what type of animals are living there. He or she may identify the problem by the presence of the animals or by their droppings. After identifying them, he or she will also look for any access holes and seal them. The expert will remove the animals safely and then seal the entry points.

The old insulation in your attic will need to be removed because of the droppings and urine that the animals leave behind. The professional may also look for chewed wires so that they can be replaced. After the insulation is removed, your professional will sanitize the attic. You will need to install new insulation.

Once your attic is restored and the entry points are sealed, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your home is wildlife-free.
