Kalamazoo Rodent Removal Tip:

The steps to get rats out of a wall
On a typical day, you probably do not have to worry about wildlife critters invading your home. I mean, your home is your fortress, which should protect you against creatures of the wild. However, you probably have not encountered a rat infestation before. If you have, then you know exactly what I am talking about. Rats are one of the least welcomed guests due to their insane reproductive nature and their habit of tearing down entire buildings. As a homeowner, have you ever had rats scurrying around your attic, bedroom, basement, kitchen, or living room? This phenomenon can be quite distressing, as the noise alone can keep you up all night, not to mention the havoc they are already wrecking.

Well, rats are one of nature's most powerful destructive forces. Having these little creatures in your house spells utter chaos and destruction. For starters, rats will chew through wood, leading to structural fragility. They also chew through books, thermal insulations, clothes, pipes, and electrical wires, which can cause recurrent power outages and even fire outbreaks. Nonetheless, it pales in comparison to rats scurrying inside your walls. The idea alone is quite scary, having little critters running around your walls with little to no disturbance. 

Overall, having rats living with you might seem small in the beginning, but with time, it will develop into a huge problem. Even if you do not have a full-fledged rat infestation, you can start rat-proofing your home to make sure that none of these tiny mammals gain access. 

How Do Rats Get into Walls?
Rats gain access to walls by utilizing cracks and crevices in and around the walls and the building's foundation as entry and exit points. Rats are actually small enough to fit into spaces the size of a quarter with little to no effort. Once inside, they begin to reproduce, increasing in numbers, as well as the damages they wreck.

Signs of Rats in a Wall

  • Squeaking, gnawing, clawing, and scurrying sounds in the wall
  • Destroyed thermal insulation and padding
  • Chewed up ducts
  • Chewed up wood support, electrical wirings, and cables
  • Rat droppings around wall cracks and crevices 
How to Get Rid of Them
Getting rid of rats residing in walls is quite complex. This is because they rarely live in the safety of their wall suite except when in search of food and water. So, how then do you deal with rats living in your walls? Well, first, you need to ascertain the potential entry/exit points. Once you have located every potential access point, seal most of them up, leaving 2 or 3 holes that will act as extraction points.

Next, employ extraction techniques such as rat traps or rat poison along the wall base at the different extraction points. Rats tend to run along the edges of the walls, so that is the best place to set traps. You should check the traps at regular intervals to ascertain their effectiveness. Get rid of trapped rats as well as dead rats and reset the traps. 

Afterward, you need to carry out proper home maintenance to ensure they do not make a sudden return. Seal up the rest of the holes using silicone-based caulk, concrete, or any other suitable material. Replace damaged wood, pipes, electrical wiring, and thermal insulation. Repair or replace broken doors, vents, roofing, and windows to stop rats from entering other parts of your home.

Conversely, contacting a licensed wildlife control company will do you more good than bad. That is if you feel like the situation is too much for you to handle personally. They will send in a well-trained technician to handle the situation, and their fees are typically pocket friendly.
