Roof Rats Burrowed Through the Foam Insulation in the Attic of a House in Atlanta

Silver dollar sized roof rat hole burrowed through foam insulation applied in an attic and discovered by an Atlanta rat exterminator called to treat the rodent problem.

Roof rat burrow through foam insulation in Atlanta

A lot of insulation contractors will tell you that applying foam insulation in the attic will keep rats from getting in. It doesn't. Rodents can chew through that stuff like we chew through pudding. We're talking about animals that break acorns with their teeth for a living. Foam isn't going to keep them out of an attic.

The other bad part about it is that the foam will also make this Atlanta roof rat removal more complicated than it would be if the foam weren't there. We need to find all the possible ways that rats could get into the attic, and seal them, to make a house rodent-proof. We'll do it, and we'll guarantee it; but it would be a lot easier if the foam weren't in the way.
