Rats Created a Fire Hazard in the Attic of this House in Stone Mountain, Georgia

Roof rats created a fire hazard by gnawing through the insulation and exposing the copper conductors of electrical wires in the attic of a house in Stone Mountain Georgia.

Roof rat damage to attic wiring in Stone Mountain

Every year, many house fires of "unknown origin" are believed to have been started by rats and other rodents gnawing on the wiring.

In this case, an electrical problem led the homeowners to call an electrician; and it was the electrician who told the homeowner that "some animal" had been chewing on the wires. We sent a technician to check it out who diagnosed a roof rat problem in the attic.

We've set traps to catch and remove the rats from the attic of this Stone Mountain, Georgia home. We'll also close up all the gaps in the roof to keep rats and other animals out of the attic.
