Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Athens
Georgia Rats and Mice
The mild climate in Athens, GA, allows house mice, Norway rats, and roof rats to thrive year-round. These rodents enter homes through holes in roofs and gaps under doors to nest in attics and wall voids.
Rats and mice contaminate stored foods in kitchens with their waste. Rodents may also gnaw on wiring and rip up insulation. In addition, Athens homeowners may find that the pests' scratching noises keep them from getting a decent night's sleep.
Bats in Attics
Dark, hidden places appeal to the six species of bats living in Georgia. This means that Athens residents often find these pests roosting in their attics. Cracks in roofs or siding allow a bat easy access into homes.
Bats in Georgia are a problem for homeowners because they carry several diseases, including rabies. Their foul-smelling droppings may trigger allergies or encourage the growth of dangerous mold
