Pests in the roof l and how to deal with them?

by annh » Sat Sep 12, 2015 9:05 am

Hi I really hope someone can help with the following problem;
We seem to have something in our roof that sounds quite big and runs about, sounds like it's playing, not heard any gnawing or scratching but sounds like there's a few of them. AH

Sounds like it could be rats or mice. Have a look for telltale signs such a droppings. If you do, here's a range of suitable traps and devices to get rid of them:

It could be birds, so you should block all entrances to stop them coming in. staple netting to avoid blocking ventilation.
