Louisville Rodent Removal Tip:

What Surfaces Are Rats Able to Climb?
If you are currently experiencing a rat problem, you may have found the rats to be living in a certain place in your home. One of the most common places for rats to invade is your attic. This might seem crazy because it is so high in the air that it seems like rats would not be able to reach it. It might surprise you that rats are actually excellent climbers and can climb all kinds of surfaces. Continue reading to find out exactly what surfaces rats are able to climb.

One simple question that many ask is why a rat would feel the need to climb in the first place. There are a variety of reasons that a rat may need to climb, but one of the most obvious is its need for food. Maybe the only source of food around can only be accessed by climbing a tree or by getting onto the roof of someone's home, and then in through their attic. Perhaps a predator was pursuing the rat and the only way to escape was to climb a tree or climb into a bush to hide. Finally, maybe the rat was looking for a nice shelter or some source of warmth. If this was the case, it would certainly try to enter someone's home by climbing a tree and perhaps jumping down to the roof, and then finding an entry point into the warm attic.

The Surfaces
rodent trapping If you think about the rodent family in general, you might quickly realize why rats can climb so well. Consider their cousin, the squirrel, which can climb very well. So, just what surfaces can a rat actually climb? Basically, any surface that provides enough friction to allow the rats to hold on will be able to be scaled by these small but mighty pests. Trees, bushes, and all other kinds of sturdy plants are easily climbed by rats, as they provide places for the rat to place their feet and get a good hold on. In addition to plants, rats can climb all kinds of bricks and stones, as well as a variety of other surfaces that are not slick. For example, it would be impossible for a rat to climb glass, most plastics, and metal that is smooth. As can be seen, rats have the ability to climb virtually any material as long as it provides them with a way to hold on, presenting some unique problems for the homeowner. 

Problems Caused
One of the worst things about the fascinating ability of rats that allows them to climb many surfaces is that it makes keeping them out of homes and buildings that much harder. If rats can climb the exterior of your home, this is going to offer them many more places where they can easily enter your home. One of the easiest entry points for rats is simply chewing a hole through the soffit or fascia. Any rat that can climb your house can get to this weak point quite simply. Another way in which this can be bad for the homeowner is if the rat gains entry to your home on the ground level. Since they can climb many surfaces, the rat may have an easier time making its way to your attic or within your roof, making the problem harder to detect and solve.

While the climbing ability of the rat is purely to help it survive, it can present some unique challenges for the homeowner trying to keep the rodent out. In addition to making it easier for rats to gain access into your home, it also makes it harder to detect rats, since they like to stay up in your attic once they can climb up there. Obviously, a rat is harder to detect in the attic versus your ground floor. Hopefully, this article sheds some light on the surfaces that rats can climb and how this can affect homeowners.
