Linn County Wildlife Removal Tip:

What To Do About Rodent Attic Entry Points - Anyone with an infestation of rodents in their home will need to spend some time finding the rodent attic entry points. It should be noted that these rodents are more than capable of squeezing themselves through the tiniest of holes or gaps - and if they can't quite manage to get through will simply gnaw their way in, this is especially true if they are searching for a warm, safe place to raise their families. In common with all rodents the teeth of rodents never stop growing - they have to gnaw almost constantly in order to keep them at a manageable level; this is one of the things that makes them dangerous to have in your home.

In order to discover the rodent attic entry points you will need to be up early in the morning to carry out some detective work. Taking the time to observe the comings and goings of your rodent infestation will enable you to see the routes your rodents use as well as their entry and exit points. Once you have discovered all the routes you should be able to pinpoint which is the most popular - this will be the location of your trap. Leave a trap at the most popular entry/exit but don't set it until you have correctly sealed every single other entry, exit, gap and space.
