Mice may be small, but they can cause big problems for PA homeowners!

The winter months bring with them a lot of fun snow activities, holiday celebrations and cozy nights inside. Unfortunately, winter is also associated with bad weather, increased heating bills and pests that mistake your attic for a Motel 6. Pests like to find warm, dry, secluded areas to stay in over the winter, and attic spaces provide them with the perfect shelter. Often attics are used as a storage space and may not be entered into very often; and the items that people store in attics like furniture, boxes and books act as perfect spots for the pests to hide in or to use to create nests. Attics are usually insulated and therefore stay warm and provide materials for pests to burrow into.

Common pests found in Pennsylvania that are likely to use attics as an overwintering area are insects like stink bugs, and rodent such as mice and rats. The problem with these pests is not only are they uninvited and a nuisance but they are definitely not good houseguests. They can cause a lot of structural damage and introduce serious health risks into your home that can be passed to you and your family. Entering and exiting attics is usually an easy process for them, they can enter to the outside or travel behind your walls to find their way to your kitchen and bathrooms to gain access to food and water sources. In doing this pests are apt to:

  • Contaminate areas with urine and feces

  • Create fire hazards with their constant gnawing on electrical wires

  • Cause damage to pipes resulting in water damage and mold issues

  • Destroy insulation with their nesting, urine and rodent droppings
