How to Get Rid of Rodents in Your Attic in Riverside, CA

Rodents are a regrettably common nuisance in Riverside that often invade our attics in search of a warm, dark place to breed and nest. Common attic intruders in the Riverside area include roof rats, Norway rats, mice, and squirrels.

Within your attic, rodents will cause damage by gnawing on insulation, ductwork, and wiring while also spreading urine and feces all over the floor. Rodents’ unfortunate tendency to nibble on electrical wires is believed to be a leading cause of house fires. Follow these tips to get rid of rodents in your attic in the Inland Empire:

  • Place traps throughout your attic. Snap traps and glue traps are the most popular trap varieties but many other types of traps exist. Bait your traps with nuts, fruit, or any other food that is rich in protein or sugar. Contrary to popular belief, cheese is a poor rodent bait. If you choose to use live traps and relocate intruding rodents, be warned that unless you seal off entry points to your attic, they’re likely to return.
  • Trim back any tree branches which could provide rodents with easy access to your roof. Mice, rats and, especially, squirrels are great climbers who can easily make use of a well-placed branch to get onto your roof and find a way into your attic. While rodents may still find other ways to access your attic, trimming overhanging branches will make it a lot tougher for them.
