Rat Infestations: Signs of Trouble

Of all the services Animal Control Experts offers, rat extermination is one that South Hempstead, NY homeowners most commonly request. We find that the majority of the calls we receive are from people who have seen a rat scurrying through their home during the day. By the time you actually see one, you’ve got a serious problem on your hands. 

Rats are nocturnal animals, so they’re more active when humans are sleeping; if you see one during the day, it usually means that there is a lot more lurking behind the walls and under the floorboards of your home. Why? – Often, it’s because there are so many of them that they’re competing for food and space and will come out of hiding in broad daylight to find both.

The last thing you want is a big rat infestation. To avoid a major problem, paying attention and looking for the signs of a problem before one of these critters sends you jumping on top of a chair is highly advisable. But how can you tell rats have moved into your home? Here are some of the signs to look for:

  • Droppings. Check the interior edges of your countertops, inside your cabinets and pantries, and inside your attic or crawlspace for rat droppings. They’re brown, small, and have a shape that’s similar to a grain of rice. If there’s enough of them, you’ll notice an odor, too. Droppings are a surefire sign of a healthy, active infestation of these pests.
  • Gnaw marks. Examine your dry food packages; if you spot anything that looks like gnaw marks in the sides of boxes or bags, it’s likely that rats have invaded your home and are literally stealing the food from your kitchen.
  • Tracks. Rats have pretty poor eyesight. They establish and repeatedly use the same tracks along baseboards and walls to move between their nests and their food sources. You might see footprints along these tracks, as well as oily rub marks; rat skin produces oil, which is left behind on the surfaces they touch.
  • Odd sounds. Listen carefully; you may hear scratching, gnawing, or chittering sounds coming from the ceilings, from behind the walls, or from underneath the floors. These sounds are a definite sign of pests, such as rats. 
  • Nests. These rodents build their nests in warm, dark locations. They construct them out of soft materials, such as insulation, shredded newspaper, and torn fabric. Check-in your rafters, crawlspaces, attic, and even behind appliances. If you see nests – especially if there are babies inside – you definitely have a problem on your hands.
