Rodent entry elimination: We see many attempts by handymen, pest control companies, and Wayne 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.

Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways.
