Dead Rat in Ceilings of homes is a very common call in Charlottesville. Rats and mice will get into walls and attics to make their home on long cold winter months, they are very thinly furred and they will often seek shelter during these cold snaps. What better place to find shelter than in the attic area of your home.
Mice and rats are the most common rodent problems that people have in the winter months of the year. One very common call we receive is to find and remove dead rats and mice from the ceilings of homes and buildings. This is sometimes a very difficult thing to do. They are rather small and it takes lots of patience and skill to often find a dead one that has made its way into the walls or ceilings of your home.
