Crack in Cinderblock Wall Lets Rodents Into the House

Crack in Cinderblock Wall Lets Rodents Into the House

With the warmer days we’ve been having, and Spring approaching, there’s been more rodent activity here in Sedona and the Verde Valley. This homeowner in Sedona complained of hearing noises in the wall at night when they went to bed. Rodents can access your home through the smallest of openings and will often nest in areas they find as shelter. The trick is to seal off any access points. When you walk around your house, inspect the exterior and look around for anything that may be broken or misplaced. The broken cinderblock pictured made for an easy access point for the critters to get in.

Pack Rat Damage in Attic

Pack Rat Damage in Attic

Simple fixes can keep pack rats out of your attic area. Please see the picture shown here because it reveals a hole that pack rats use to get access into your home. If you think you’re hearing noises at night in your attic area, please have it checked out by a pest control professional.

I know I’ve said it before, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Make sure there are no entry points by covering any holes, such as the soffit vents, with wire screen. Also try to keep all landscaping materials cut back away from the home. Rodents will often use trees or tall shrubs adjacent to the roof to gain access to your roof top.

This is a typical rodent control job that we come across working in Yavapai county. Pack Rats, Mice, Chipmunks, and Ground Squirrels love to get into our crawl spaces and attics if they can find an access point big enough for them to get their bodies through. Once they get in, they like to get into the insulation and make a mess and in some cases start to chew on the electrical wiring in the house.

The pictures provided give you a before and after look of a rodent clean-up job. Every job is different and always get a few good estimates before making your decision. Ask the technicians what it is they plan to do and see if the will provide you with before and after pictures for your own peace of mind. Not many homeowners want to crawl into these areas with us to see for themselves what’s going on, so a few simple shots with a camera can let you see.
