What Kind of Pests Can Damage My Roof?

Have you been woken by the sounds of rats or other pests rustling through the roofs of your home? If so, it may be time to reach out to our Tulsa roofing team at T-Town Roofing. Pests such as rats, beetles, and moths can significantly endanger your health and may cause serious damage to your roof, harming the energy efficiency of your home and decreasing the value of your home.

Pest infestations are more common during the winter months, as many rats and mice attempt to escape the cold weather in order to nest and forage for food. Unfortunately, when this occurs, wiring, pipes, brickwork, and timber can be destroyed. One source reported a significant increase in the amount of houses with rodent infestations during the month of October, when temperatures dropped significantly.

Below is a list of some of the most common pests that can seriously damage your roof and other structures of your home:

  • Termites
  • Powderpost beetles
  • Carpenter ants
  • Mice and rats
  • Squirrels
  • Honey bees
  • Fire ants
  • Indoor ants
  • Bed bugs
  • German cockroaches
