Along with the visible droppings there are other concerns.They can carry external parasites such as ﬂeas, ﬂies, maggots, ticks, and mites. Viruses, such as Hepatitis E, are not uncommon. They can even spread diseases to your pet by drinking from their bowls. Your kitchen can be contaminated making it difficult to safely prepare meals for your family. This is not a problem to take on without professional help.
Rodents In The Attic, Walls
The general rule with rodents is, if you see one, there are probably more. These creatures breed rapidly. Gestation is about 23 days and they usually have 6-12 in a litter so they multiply at a very fast rate. Do not put this off, it will get out of control. Waiting can lead to full on infestation. That can cause severe damages and increased health risks to you and your family. Your attic can be a great home for rats and mice but if they are living in your attic they are probably causing damages that you need experts to locate and repair. They will chew on electrical wiring that can turn into fire hazards. Plumbing is also vulnerable to their sharp little teeth. These are damages that will get worse the longer they are allowed to stay.
