Signs of Rat Infestation

Finding rat droppings in your home is the first sign of a rat control problem. Rats are also responsible for noises in the attic, including scratching and scampering. Rats need to chew almost constantly! This will cause significant damage to your trim boards, books, and furniture. Finding gnaw marks on your food containers can also be a sign of rats in the home.

Common Rat Damage

Rats cause severe damage when nesting in an attic or other areas of a home. Rats carry diseases that can be transmitted to you and your family. Common rat damage found in the home include:

  • Bite marks
  • Ripped insulation and potential fire hazards near electrical boxes
  • Dangerous droppings and urine that can contain deadly diseases like plague, hantavirus, or leptospirosis.
