Besides chewing on cables and wiring, rats and rodents can also gnaw away at your walls, drywall, and structural supports. Rat prevention is a must. Think of these small pests like goats – they eat anything. Rats can chew through 2 x 4s, walls, aluminum, and concrete! They are very determined to get where they’re going.

Rodents love to gnaw on anything you can think of including cables, wires, insulation, and wood flooring. Once they’re in your home–watch out. In a short amount of time, they can wreak havoc.

If you live in Washington, you’re aware of the ongoing problems with rats.  One rat can create 50 droppings in just one day – just think about what that can do to your insulation. And once rats have made their nests in your insulation, it’s completely contaminated with waste and urine.

At that point, you will need to have a professional insulation services contractor remove the old insulation and seal up the space to keep animals out. Once that’s done, they can install nice, clean insulation that’s energy-efficient too.
