Coral Springs Rats, Raccoons, Noises in the Attic

When critters invade your home, it's important to get them out as soon as possible. In Coral Springs, FL, you might run into rats or raccoons on your property or even inside your attic.


Rats are one of the most common home invaders because they're relatively small and very crafty. You don't have to leave a huge opening in your home to let a rat in; a small hole or crack in your wall or roofing could be large enough for a rat to crawl through. Once they're in your house, rats will cause significant damage by chewing wires and using materials from your home to nest.


Raccoons are a bit larger than your average home invading critter, so it's a bit harder for them to find their way into your house. However, if a raccoon does happen to find its way into your home, it's likely to cause significant damage. Raccoon droppings and urine can saturate and damage parts of your attic, and they cause even more problems when they decide to make a nest. In addition to this, raccoons often carry a type of roundworm in their feces.

Noises in the Attic

Though they will move in to any area that they can, wild animals like raccoons and rats prefer the seclusion that an attic offers. Raccoons are larger and heavier than rats, and are also nocturnal, so their heavy footsteps can most easily be heard at night. Rats on the other hand are more difficult to detect by listening, but their scratching and the pitter-patter of their feet is still audible. Animals can wreak havoc on an attic, so it is crucial to have them removed as quickly as possible.
