Throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, people will awake from sleep, sit straight up in bed and listen intently… “What was that?” Then silence, but then the silence is broken again… a scurrying sound... gnawing... “there’s something in the attic”.

Rodents can find their way into attics and crawlspaces through holes in ventilation screens, house siding holes, gaps in roofing tiles especially during the cooler months searching for a place to hunker down.

Once inside attics, they build nests (photo), burrow in the insulation, chew electrical wires, poop/pee, chew through ducts, tear off duct insulation… and make those noises in the night.
