Hearing noises in the loft can be very unsettling, even enough for you to avoid going up to see what pests you may have!
This can be a major problem when it comes to lofts and attics.
Because we rarely visit them, we often don’t realise there’s a problem before it’s too late. A window may be poorly sealed, allowing a mouse to slip in through a crack, or a missing tile may have given way to a small hole in your roof, an entry point that roof rats especially like to exploit.
One of the best ways to limit unwanted intrusions by insects, rodents, birds, squirrels and other pests is to deny them entry - a procedure known as pest proofing.
Many pests seek refuge in homes and other buildings in response to changes in weather, such as extended periods of rain or drought, or the onset of cooler temperatures in autumn. Taking steps to block their entry before they end up inside can greatly reduce the chances of future sightings.
Five Most Common Loft Pests
Don’t run the risk of bad odours, disease, or electrical hazards. If you think any of these pests may have infested your loft space, reach out to a professional immediately to have them removed.
Noises in the Loft?
If you’re hearing noises in the loft and find signs of habitation like droppings, nesting, or damage caused by gnawing, you might just be dealing with loft pests.
Loft spaces are the ideal environment for rodents
They can damage stored items by gnawing and could even chew through your electric cabling. They leave droppings and other animal matter, which make your loft space the ideal breeding ground for insects and diseases.
When rodents need to be taken out of your home, our expert pest controller acts in accordance with the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU); we’re dedicated to protecting people, pets and the planet. We are contentious about the types of products we use and we stand by them.

Pest Proof Your Home
Did you know that mice can squeeze through a hole the size of the end of a biro? Rats can push themselves through a hole no bigger than a fifty pence. This means that just about any hole in your roof or attic needs to be fixed immediately.
If there’s a way to exploit an entrance to your home, rodents will certainly find a way, and then you’ll be sure to see signs of a rodent infestation before too long.
Sometimes there is more than one entry point and only by prooﬁng many different areas will a solution be reached.
Many homes are repeat targets for rodent and other pest infestations. Rodents can cause damage to the home, spoil food and spread disease. The home owners find themselves baiting and trapping rodents year after year in a never ending cycle.
This usually happens because the home owners are relying on getting rid of a rat infestation or a mouse infestation instead of preventing one. Rodent infestations can be prevented by rodent proofing your home.
