Wildlife will create dens and nests with the available materials in the nooks and crannies of your attic space. Dens and nests are often made using your insulation or HVAC ductwork, but animals can also use cardboard boxes, clothe, paper, and anything available. Dens and nests can reduce the energy efficiency of your home and destroy stored items.

Feces and urine can rot and contaminate wood, and ruin stored personal items in the attic. Animal feces in the attic may also lead to stained ceilings and drywall. and terrible odors.

Bat bugs, mites, ticks, and fleas are a few of the ectoparasites that could be left in your attic. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic, and raccoons in the attic are notorious for bringing these pests into your home.
