The Dangers of a Rat Infestation

A rat problem in your house is serious and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Besides compromising your home’s safety and spreading diseases and allergies, rats are also known as destruction bearers. The whole life cycle of rats, from their nesting habits to their diet, is harmful to people and properties. They wreak havoc in their way, gnawing on everything they can see – wood, electric cables, pipes, and paper are just a tiny portion of their daily menu. Rats in the garden are another problem you may face if you have a garden on your property. The bad news is that they spread quickly, and the damage grows proportionally to the rat colony. That is why it is advisable to schedule rat removal services as soon as you spot them because professional rat exterminators will know how to deal with them effectively before they cause more harm. The same goes in the event of a mice infestation.


Signs of Rats in the House

When you first spot the signs of a rat’s presence, it’s best to take action immediately before it becomes a full-on rat infestation. The signs that you have a rat problem are:

  • Gnawing marks – rats have incisors that never stop growing. As a result, they require something hard to chew on regularly – cables, wood, even pipes;
  • Noises – rats can climb walls, so you might hear scratching noises coming from the walls;
  • Rat Droppings – the shape and size of black olives. If you hear noises, see chewed cables but don’t find droppings, it’s probably rats, not mice. A rat’s protectiveness makes them better hiding creatures, so they do not like to be noticed;
  • Footprints – like any other animal, rats leave footprints. Typically, they are found in dusty areas, like basements or attics;
  • Smears – since rats have poor vision, they tend to follow the same path when moving. Continually moving along the same tracks leaves spots on surfaces.

A full-blown rat infestation leads to costly repairs because rats cause immense property damage, leaving big holes in your walls and pockets.In the event of rat infestation, contacting a local rat exterminator is always the best solution.;

FAQ

Can rats climb walls?
Rats are skilled climbers capable of climbing up walls and squeezing into narrow spaces. They have sharp nails and dermal ridges that aid in grabbing vertical surfaces. A rat can climb any wall with an uneven texture.
What attracts rats to your house?
Food and water are the primary reasons rats enter properties. They will chew just about anything to get access to food and water. They also seek shelter to protect themselves, especially during the winter months.
How do you know if the rats are gone?
Try spreading flour overnight on your floor and in areas you think rats are more likely to pass through to find out if they are still lurking there. If you still have rats, they will leave a trail, but by following their footprints, you can identify where they’re hiding.
Do rats go in clean houses?
Rats are often attracted to dirty properties because they offer potential food sources. Even well-kept homes can provide opportunities for these pests to feed. Store food securely and clean spills immediately. Any food left out overnight or not fully sealed in containers can attract hungry rodents.
