Common signs of a rat infestation
Rats are a type of long-tailed rodent known for being unsanitary and leaving destruction in their wake. You can tell a rat has made a base in your house if you see droppings that are dark brown and spindle-shaped. Damaged furniture is another indicator, as rats destroy objects and materials to create nests in areas such as within the walls or under floorboards. Additionally, rats destroy the packaging of food, so if you see holes in boxes of cereals or bags of crisps, chances are there is a rat around. Lots of clutter in an unused room is an invitation for pests to hide, including rats and cockroaches.
