Tile roofs create a difficult challenge based on not seeing the
actual roof the way one does with a shingle rooftop. Tiles are essentially
an ornamental rooftop covering which creates a space between the tile layer and
the real roof. This space can be entered at any openings around the
perimeter, around vent or chimney perimeters, and along the valleys of the roof
where 2 hips meet. Animals underneath the tiles are not necessarily inside
the attic, but the only way to stop attic entry is to stop them from entering
this space. Once rats, squirrels, mice, or bats are underneath the tiles,
they enter the attic either through small gaps in the real roof where vents and
plumbing stacks go through the real roof (openings allowing these
structures to pass through, are often larger than the structure themselves
allowing rodents to get into the attic) or by chewing through the real roof
which is always a possibility. Sometimes these openings can be identified
and sealed from inside the attic, but in order to stop the animals from creating
new openings, the tile roof must be sealed.
Massachusetts does not allow the relocation of any wildlife. Any wildlife that is captured must either be released at the site of capture or euthanized. There are many reasons for this.
You may spread disease without even realizing it by liberating a sick animal in a new location. Rabies, distemper, mange and many other diseases can be spread this way.
The survival rate of relocated wildlife is very low. Death that is caused by relocation is usually due to starvation, exposure, predation or accident and is usually far from humane.
Animals have incredible homing instincts and most wild animals will attempt to make it back to the site where they were captured. Few survive and even if they did it would defeat the purpose of relocation.
If an animal was causing a problem in one area it will probably cause the same problem wherever it was released. Any wild animal that associates people with food will seek out another urban area and move right back into the nearest neighborhood. This only transfers the problem.
Assuming an animal were to survive and didn't cause the same problems in the area of relocation it would still compete with the animals that already lived there for food, mates and denning site which are already in short supply. This is not fair to those animals that were not exhibiting problem behavior.
