If you have a barrel tile roof, you may have a vulnerability in your home to rats, rodents, squirrels and the like. Many homes have a foam bird stop that rats can easily chew through. Once they get under your tile, its very easy to enter your home by just chewing through a thin sheet of plywood. And wood is no challenge for a rat, mouse or squirrel to chew through.

Animals in the Attic has a permanent solution to seal up these access points in your roof.

How to keep rats from entering Barrel Tile Roof, Bird Stop, Rat entry points, Melbourne, FL

How to keep wildlife from entering your home through your barrel tire roof? The most vulnerable spot on roofs with barrel tile is where the first (or end) tile meets the edge of the roof. This spot usually has a material to close this hole called “bird stop”. The original purpose was to stop birds from nesting in these holes. Birds are bad enough, but at least they would just stay in the edge of the roof. Rats , mice and squirrels however will use these holes as a way into your house.

There are different kinds of bird stop. Metal, foam rubber, cement, and
none. None is the case when the the holes are relatively small. I guess the logic is that the hole is too small for a bird to nest, but its plenty big of a rodent to enter.

The metal and cement bird stops we have come across work very well at prevent all types of wild life from entering. Only in the case of a poor fit have we seen rodent entry points.

The foam rubber variety is great at keeping birds from nesting but is not much of a deterrent to rodents. Rats, mice and squirrels can gnaw through it in no time. Some people think they can patch or seal these holes. But the critters will just eat through another hole before the night is over. The only method we recommend to solve this problem is replacing all the foam with cement. We add a colored dye into the cement mix to match the house or the old bird stop and apply the cement by hand. Its tedious work but really the only permanent solution.

Metal cannot be inserted without removing tile, and this much more involved than the cement technique.

The key to sealing up your home is to cover all bases. Rats especially, are very smart. If you seal them out of one area they will find another. So you need to find the weak links in your home to prevent wildlife from entering.

Rat Infestation Removal, Animals in the Attic 321-614-6005 Melbourne, FL Rats in Toilet & Furniture

We normally try to stay in our own backyard to be able to offer our customers the 24/7 hands-on service they deserve. But when you get call after call from someone begging you for help – what can you do, but help. They already tried 5 different pest control or wildlife removal companies without success. We couldn’t let her continue to throw away her money on ineffective techniques.

So we drove to Ft. Lauderdale to solve a major rat infestation problem. The house is only lived-in part of the year, which gives any critters free reign once they get in. And in this home they had a party goin’ on.

The rats found a couple entry points that apparently were missed by the other pest control companies. We found them and secured them. We call this exclusion. We want to exclude all wildlife from your home. And when we do – we guarantee our work for life.

Anyway, take a look at this video, and BTW if seeing a lot of rat poop gives you the willies – well don’t watch. Cause its everywhere! And luckily you don’t have smell-a-vision! I’ll leave it at that…

Something interesting about rat behavior; The rats found a full unopened bag of dog food in the pantry and dragged it out into the family room for easy access. Rats usually take food that they have found and stash it in the walls, attic, or in the furniture for future use. This bag was completely empty.

Take a look at the damage they did to the dresser. They made their own bedding from the wood of the drawers. Rat mothers will do what it takes to make a nice nest for their babies.

The lesson here is if you leave of an extend period of time, make sure your house is secure, and have someone keep an eye on it. If they spot some activity, action needs to be taken before it gets out of control like in this case.

If you want your home secured and a guarantee that wildlife won’t ever get in, call James (he’s the guy in the orange shirt) at Animals In The Attic Brevard for a free home inspection. He knows where to look and how to stop rats, rodents, squirrels and raccoons from entering your home. And of course if you already know or suspect you have rats or any kind of wildlife don’t wait any longer.

Oh and one other thing, at least one of the pest control companies that tried to get rid of the rats put bait boxes around the house. That’s the worst idea in the world! If you know the rats are still going in and out of the house, why would you poison them? If a rat eats the poisoned bait, they’ll start feeling sick and… (what do we do?) go to bed. Which is back in the home – to die, and stink, and decay, and generate maggots and flies! Sorry for the drama but some people just don’t get it. And if you are lucky enough that the rat dies outside – just hope your’s or a neighbors dog or cat doesn’t mess with it, or they’ll get poisoned. No matter how you look at it poison is a bad idea.
