Signs You Have Rats in Your Property
Rats can cause severe damage to your property, and their presence poses a risk to your health. It is essential to recognise the signs of a rat infestation so you can take immediate action. Here are common signs you might have a rat problem:
Gnaw marks on furniture, wires, and walls
Rats have strong teeth that allow them to chew through various materials. If you notice gnaw marks on your furniture, wires, or walls, it could be a sign of a rat infestation. These marks might appear as small scratches or more extensive damage, depending on the severity of the problem.
Droppings and urine stains
Rat droppings are small, dark, and pellet-shaped, while urine stains may appear as yellowish spots or streaks. Finding these around your property is a clear indication of a rat presence. Pay close attention to areas where food is stored, as well as hidden nooks and crannies where rats may be nesting.
Unusual noises in the roof or walls
If you hear scratching, scurrying, or other strange noises coming from your roof or walls, it could be a sign rats are living in your property. These sounds are usually more noticeable during the night when rats are most active.
Rats produce a distinct, musky odour that can become quite noticeable when they are present in large numbers. This smell is often accompanied by a strong ammonia-like scent from their urine. If you detect these smells in your home or business, it’s time to investigate for a possible rat infestation.
Damaged food packaging
Rats are always on the hunt for food sources, and they will chew through packaging to access the contents inside. If you find damaged food packages in your pantry or kitchen, it’s a sign rats may be present.
