My phone starts ringing off the hook whenever it rains because of… rats! Think about it, you want to get out of the rain and cold and so do they.
They’ve successfully found harborige, mates and food out and about, and then all of a sudden it’s pouring rain and they rush to get inside.
First tip: make sure you have weather stripping on your garage and all of the doors. Stopping the rats and other pests from entering the house is the best place to start.
Second tip: make sure your roof returns are sealed. If you don’t know what a roof return is, you’re going to find out because that’s where a lot of the rats get in.

We get many, many called from people who think they have a squirrel or a mouse in their attic and what they are actually hearing is a roof rat. The roof rat is an imported rat from Europe that was imported there from Asia. They came over in the late 1700’s, early 1800’s with all of the settlers and boats that came to California, and now they are everywhere in Santa Clarita.
Third tip: have normally scheduled pest control appointments. The best way to prevent rats and other pests from getting in is to get dewebbed, sprayed and all holes get closed up.
