How Did I Get Roof Rats?
Roof rats can fit through holes as small as one-half inch in diameter. Because they prefer to be high in the air, these rodents may climb on power lines or tree branches to get on the roof.
These rats have no problem reaching almost any house area, so many homeowners struggle to keep these pests out. These rodents often enter homes from:
- Chewing entry holes
- Damaged vent covers
- Gaps in shingles
- Squeezing through cracks
Roof rats can cause extensive and costly damage by chewing on the electrical wires, damaging furniture and storage boxes, and ripping up insulation in the attic. The visual signs of roof rat activity include visual sightings, nests, droppings, and grease marks along the surface of your home.

How Did I Get Norway Rats?
Norway rats will gnaw away parts of the home to enlarge a potential entryway and often burrow their way inside by digging. Older buildings with poor construction and maintenance are at a higher risk for these types of rodent problems.
Norway rats get into homes by entering through gaps and crevices. Rats can fit through holes as small as 1/2 inch. Their most common entryways are:
- Gaps under doors
- Holes from plumbing and utility lines
- Poorly fitting crawlspace doors
- Poorly maintained wall and foundation vents
Norway rats are also extremely dangerous since they can damage your home while posing a serious health risk by chewing on wiring or belongings, damaging your home's foundation with their burrows, and by contaminating food.
