If you’re a Georgia homeowner, it’s probably safe to say that you don’t even want to consider the possibility that rodents or other critters might be crawling about or living in the recesses of your house. But oddly enough, just as your home serves as a safe haven for you and your family, it can also serve as a safe haven for rodents, critters, and other small wildlife seeking food and shelter, especially during the colder months of the year. 

But how can you tell if an animal has made a home in your attic, crawlspace, or any of the other recesses in your home? And why is it important to remove and sanitize these infested areas? Knowing the signs and understanding why it’s important to call a professional for help can help keep your home safe and secure. 

Know the Signs

The first sign that you may have a rodent or animal lurking about is noise coming from inside walls, ceilings, attics, or other hidden spaces. If you hear scratching or scurrying noises during the night—or at any time of day—you should investigate further. Other signs can include droppings around entry points such as vents, windowsills, chimneys, and other openings which rodents typically use to gain access. Unpleasant odors may also be present if the population is sizable. Another way to know if animals have taken refuge within your space is to look for nests or piles of debris and materials that have been gathered together to create a nest.

Why You Should Call a Professional 

If you believe there is an infestation in your home, it’s important not only to remove the pest, but also block potential access points to prevent re-entry in the future.
