How to Tell if you have Rats in your Home

Rodents are the last unwanted guest that you want in your home, and especially rats. Rat invasions can bring harm to the structure of your home, and if not caught early can quickly become a large issue.There are some easy indicators to look for to know if you have these pesky rodents roaming around your home. 

  • Dropping in/around areas with Food-Rats will generally leave droppings in the spaces they are occupying. This is generally one of the first indicators that you will visibly see when you have these pesky rodents in your home.
  • Small Holes in Dry Food- Rats will nibble on whatever food they can find. You will generally see holes in your rice, beans, crackers, and types of food that can be easy to get into and munch on. This is another visible indicator that you have unwanted friends in your home.
  • Rustling Sounds in your Walls-This indicator is one not every home has. It depends how the rats are entering your home, and where they are entering your home on whether or not you will be able to hear them.
