How To Spot Rodent Entry Points
When houses are re-roofed, there is often a 1” – 2” gap left between the facia board and the edge of the roofline. It is very common for rats and squirrels to take advantage of this deficiency and create a larger opening by which they can enter the home.

The common types of rats in the Lower Mainland are the Norway rat and roof rat.
Norway rats like to burrow and therefore build their nests in wall voids, underneath sidewalks or decking, and may dig up and also nest in vegetation. They can also turn up commonly in attics and crawlspaces.
Roof rats can live in areas of the home above ground (i.e.. attic). They also live in, garages, sheds and even trees.
Rats are typically distinguished from mice by their larger size and longer tails.
Rats mostly consume foods containing carbohydrates. They get their vitamins and nutrients from vegetables and fruits – MAKE SURE YOUR COMPOST IS SEALED!
The smallest mammal belonging to the rodent family is the mouse. The most common breed of mouse in North America is the house mouse. They vary in colour from white to grey, and light brown to black.
In the wild, mice live under a year due to predation and harsh environments. However, in protected environments such as your home mice can live two to three years and breed a lot. One female can have between 5 and 10 litters per year, so the population can increase very quickly!
Mice will eat almost anything but they prefer cereals and insects. Keeping a spotless kitchen is an essential part of getting any mouse infestation under control.
Mice are arguably the most difficult pest to eradicate. Several (4-6) service visits is common for mice and rodent control.
Tile Roof Exclusion
Tiles are a popular roof choice for many home owners in Metro Vancouver. They are are great for aesthetics, longevity and preventing leaks. Unfortunately, tile roofs are also notorious for providing easy access into homes for rats and squirrels.
The rounded end of tile roofs provide countless potential entry points for rodents. Tiles are usually overhanging gutter lines (or rat and squirrel highways!)
As tiles move, they can be difficult to seal from rats and squirrels. There are often more than 100 points of entry depending the size and design of the house. It can be effectively done however!
Sealing Up Rodent Entry Points
Rodents can find there way into homes through cracks and openings that are usually overhanging gutter lines. Here, our technician installs grated covering to block rodent entry points.
