Pests think your roof is a safe hangout place.

Your roof covers your home and protects it from rain, extreme Southern Louisiana heat and humidity, and severe weather including storms and hurricanes. Pests are attracted to your roof as a safe place to hang out and protect themselves from the elements. This makes your roof an important part of pest control.

Regular roof care and maintenance are important for any property owner.

A professional roof inspection will notice broken or missing roof tiles or shingles and other pest access points. Beyond that, preventative roof pest control means making your home less inviting for pests. Steps you should take include:

  • Blocking any access points into your home.
  • Keeping trees and foliage trimmed
  • Cleaning your roof and gutters regularly

Pest control companies will help you eliminate any access points on your roof for pests from more obvious areas like vents to much smaller openings. An important part of preventative pest control is knowing what kind of roof pests there are in your area.

Here in Southern Louisiana, common pests that can invade your roof include:

  • Bats
  • Birds
  • Insects (ants, bees and wasps, termites)
  • Rodents (mice and rats)
  • Wildlife (chipmunks, opossums, raccoons, squirrels)

Common signs any of these roof pests have arrived include scampering and scurrying above you, flapping wings or high-pitched sounds, or more visible signs of pest infestation including dead insects or rodents, droppings, gnawed items or nests. If you notice these signs, don’t wait – take action immediately!

There are several ways to get rid of roof pests once they’ve invaded your home. While you may be tempted to try and get rid of roof pests yourself, it could be dangerous. A local pest control company can help you handle an insect infestation at any level and safely remove bats, birds, and rodents without the risks to kids and pets. They will also help clean up any messes these roof pests leave behind.

New Orleans-area homeowners need to remember to perform regular roof inspections and to quickly fix any issues. Not only will this help minimize pest damage but also prolong your roof’s lifespan
