How to Keep Critters Out of Your Attic

As fall gives way to winter, you’ll notice that squirrels are making a stepped up effort to gather nuts in advance of the cold weather. Acorns are a favorite of these and other rodents, but if you’re not careful they won’t be simply burying them in your yard and coming back later. Some animals, squirrels included, look for a secure and warm place to hide out for the winter. That place might be your attic and the evidence of rodent intrusion may be as simple as hearing the scampering of little feet across your roof throughout the day.

If you suspect that critters have taken up residence in your attic, there are certain things that you can do to remove them before they chew up insulation or, worse, bite into wires and cause a house fire:

4. Look for points of entry – It may not be enough to trim trees and remove trash. If a rodent wants to get into your home, it’ll find a way. That way may be apparent if there is a hole in your roof or soffit, someth...
