Dead Rats or Mice Are in Walls of My Home
Dead Rats in the walls of homes in Charlottesville is a very common call we get. Dead rats will occur in walls for several reasons. The major reason that people will get them in the walls of their homes is that pest control companies use poison blocks to try and control rat populations.
This is not the correct way to handle an infestation in a home. Pest control companies will often use poison because it is very simple to do. Even the worst pest control companies will have access to rat poison. Every year we get hundreds of phone calls from homeowners with dead rodents in their walls. This problem is easily fixed if it is addressed the correct way in the very beginning. The problem can also become a long-lingering problem if it is approached the wrong way.
How Did the Dead Rats Get In the Walls?
The dead rats probably got into your walls either through the ceiling or the crawlspace portion of your home. The best solution to this problem is to have an exclusion done to the home to seal up all possible entry points in the home’s vulnerable areas. If all areas are sealed properly, then they will not be able to gain access to the walls.
If you have a dead rat in the wall of your home, then you obviously have areas where they gain access to your home. Once a rat has made its way to the crawlspace area of your home, it has access to all areas of your house, including walls and ceilings.
How Do I Get Rid of the Dead Rats in the Walls?
