Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

La Jolla Wildlife Removal Tip: What Can Rats Climb?

In the winter season, the freezing temperatures outside force rats to enter human habitats to search for a cozy and comfortable living space. But they not only need a space to build a nest in your house rather at the same time they start causing huge damage to the area. You cannot be friendly to rats by considering them innocent pests who need some heat inside; because if you ignore them so long, they may end up causing loss of several thousand dollars within very less time.

Experts say that rats have the ability to climb up to the roof of large buildings and may create nests in the attic. Indeed, they are amazing climbers and can get up to a great height within few minutes. You can often see them climbing trees and running on branches. These creatures can also run up through cables, electric wires, and drainpipes. It is commonly observed to see rats climbing over concrete, wood, brick, plastic, sheet metal, drywall and stucco. So many rodents can climb with ease, and their skills generally depend on in which conditions they have lived their life.

When it comes to climbing, rats make use of their anatomical structure. Their pads and claws are capable enough to latch to any surface securely. They are observed to have five phalanges fingers on their paw that are very sharp. Their body structure assists them to climb on almost all types of surfaces. Also, their microscopic dermal ridges assist them to develop friction against surfaces so that they can climb up. They also make use of their tails to wrap around ropes, wires, and cords, etc. If you find a rat climbing up a cord, you will observe how well its tail assists to make the upward movement.

Rats also have an awesome leaping ability that also contributes to their climbing skills. These rodents can easily leap up to 36 inches in the vertical direction and 48 inches in the horizontal direction. It means rats can easily climb a tree by using their feet and can also leap on the walls or roof. With their leaping ability, rats can also survive even if they fall from a height of 50 feet. With such wonderful climbing skills, rats will take a few minutes to reach your attic and will build a cozy nest over there. If you live in a rat prone area, it is important to ensure time to time check in the attic, patio, porch, and basement to make sure your house is free form rat infestation. If you find these creatures running through rooflines, there are chances that they are building nests in your house. In order to get rid of rats from your premises, prefer to contact professional rat exterminators. These professionals know right tricks to deal with the infestation issue and can save your property from major loss. Before they become your permanent attic roommates, it is better to take them out of your house. It can help you save several thousand dollars on repair.
