You’re lying in bed at night, about to fall asleep, when all of a sudden, you hear it: scuttling, scratching sounds from above. No, your house isn’t haunted and it’s probably not a burglar. The likeliest cause is more mundane, but no less unsettling – you have a pest infestation in the attic!
At Progressive Pest Control, we help homeowners throughout Northeast metro Atlanta evict these unwanted guests with our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) services. Read on to learn about the most common attic pests in Northeast Atlanta.
3 Georgia Pests That Might Be Hiding in Your Attic
- Rats – Seeing a rat scuttle across the attic isn’t just unsettling, it’s unsanitary! Rats can carry diseases and bring other pests like fleas into your home. If you suspect a rat infestation anywhere in your home or property, call us right away for rat extermination.
- Bats – Bats can actually be a beneficial animal when it comes to pest control – as long as they’re outside of your home! If you think bats have roosted in your attic, it’s important to call a pest control company for professional bat remediation. That way the bats can be safely excluded from your attic and kept outside to feast on insects and reduce the mosquito population.
- Squirrels – These furry creatures may seem cute, but having a squirrel infestation in the attic can be dangerous. Squirrels love to chew, and they’re not very discerning about what they gnaw on. It’s not uncommon for squirrels to chew on wiring, which is a major fire hazard, not to mention the hygiene issues that can arise from squirrels nesting in your insulation and using the bathroom all over your attic.
No matter what may be lurking in your attic, Progressive Pest Control is here to help! Give us a call for pest control services in Braselton, Buford, Lawrenceville, Duluth, and elsewhere in North Atlanta.
