Allen Texas – Rodents and Termites in the Attic

Allen Texas – Rodents and Termites in the Attic

We continue to have a flood of calls from Allen Texas this week. We had some interesting experiences with rodents and termites. We found raccoons, both alive and dead in the attic of one home in Allen Texas. It was a challenge getting the live raccoons out safely. We made sure not to harm the raccoons and keep ourselves safe at the same time. Raccoons can be dangerous. They carry several disease that can be transmitted to humans as well as pets. Rabies, roundworm and leptospirosis. So even though they might look “cute”, its not recommended to keep them around the house.

We trapped the raccoons and cleaned up the mess they made in the attic.

In that same home we found termites. These termites had a very large presence. They have nested from the foundation all the way up the walls into the attic. There will need some work to repair the damaged studs, but luckily we treated the termites and will continue to monitor the home this year.
