It's not wise to let rodents live in the attic of your house. As you can see, they frequently chew on wires, which can not only cause electrical shortages, but can pose a fire hazard. In addition, they leave rat poop all over the place, which is not only disgusting, but a potential health risk. For more information about wildlife diseases click here. In addition, the droppings and urine can attract new rodents to the attic, and it's best to have the mess cleaned up and deodorized, which is a service we, and any reputable rodent removal company, provides.
