Waukesha wildlife control tip of the month:
Will a rodent in the attic have a nest of babies?
Rodents inhabit human premises due to the perfect and friendly environment. For their home, they will look for a cozy shelter and attic provides them all three demanded conditions.
Signs that you have rodents in your attic:
- Squawky noises coming from attic
- Trails and urine puddles
- Marks of nibbling and gnawing
- Odd, unusual, musky odor
- Pet excitement; pets will be acting even crazier than normal
If you came across above mentioned clues there is no doubt, mouse, rats or squirrels are probably nesting in your attic. Rodents found in the attics are usually females with their young.
As soon as you start noticing the signs of rodent infestation, you need to start looking for the nest. It will most definitely be up there somewhere. Pests build their Waukesha exterminator nests from a soft, fluffy, and warm materials such as fabric, various stuffings, paper, grass, combined with natural materials found nearby. After gathering all of the building material they usually stuff it all into a hard to find, out of sight cozy shelter. However, increased quantity droppings just beneath or nearby nest give away their hiding place.
Rats and mice reproduce very quickly and that's why nests should be located as soon a possible.
Rats breeding cycle is very busy, we can easily use this word. After the Waukesha pest control rat gets pregnant it takes approximately 21-23 days for the young to be born. At birth, there are 5-8 young in the litter, and they are developing rapidly, reaching their sexual maturity in three months. Rats have 3 or more litters per year and are able to get pregnant again within the next 48 hours after having their young.
Indoor rodents tend to breed more times per year than the ones living outside, depending on the nearby conditions.
Mice are another rodent who's preferably nesting in the attic. They breed through all year and have 5 -10 liters per year. The female mouse gives, after 19 to 21 days cycle of pregnancy, birth to 5 to 6 young per a litter. Under really good conditions rats and mice population can grow very quickly, however, evolution does interfere and when Waukesha animal control population density starts to exceed the areas possibilities, survival of young starts to decline.
Squirrels, on the other hand, give birth to only 2 liters per year. The first one is in late summer and the second one in winter. The Waukesha animal trapping pregnancy lasts for 44 days and after that, 3-4 young are born. The Waukesha wildlife removalyoung grow rapidly as well, and as they grow and start to feed themselves, several nests have been built on their own throughout the whole attic. They are not a potential health hazard, since they are annoying because of their squealing, and they run around ceaselessly.
To answer the question, yes, rodents will most certainly build a nest in your attic if they find a way in.
