Rodent entry elimination: We see many attempts by handymen, pest control companies, and Macomb County, Michigan rodent extraction companies that do not include the removal of any roofing material. Often the prevention includes the emptying of a can of foam into the void. Without the removal of roofing material, there is no assurance that rodent entry will be eliminated. When we encounter these substandard attempts, we must first remove the previous application.  When this includes foam, the extraction of the foam takes longer than the application of our wire prevention product.

Rodent elimination by those who are not insured exposes you, the Macomb County, Michigan homeowner, to unnecessary liabilities. It is in your best interest to request proof of insurance for worker’s compensation and public liability before work begins on your roof. It’s doubtful that you will find these companies or individuals carry such insurance.  Those who do not often work in this environment typically cannot afford expensive roofing insurance.

Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days.
