Wildlife Removal - Traps set up on roof and exclusion traps over entry point
Upon inspecting the roof to find the access points used by the wildlife to enter the attic, I noticed that the gutter guards were made of vinyl. and not of metal. Squirrels may look cute, but they are gnawing rodents whose razor-sharp teeth are capable of grinding through most building materials. The can tear through vinyl like it was butter, and sure enough, there was a hole chewed through the gutter guard at one of the seams. There was another squirrel "renovations" where a hole was made through the fascia board at the small gap between the roof plywood and the fascia. Fascia boards and soffits are common entry points because they are often loose or rotting from water damage. Also, that gap between the fascia and the roof is often exploited by wildlife. Homes are built with this gap to allow roofs to "breathe;"otherwise, parts of the roof can tear off in a bad storm.
