Identifying Signs

Be on the lookout for signs such as droppings, gnaw marks on walls or furniture, and scratching noises, especially at night. Rats tend to nest in dark, secluded areas like attics, basements, or behind appliances.

Potential risks

Rats can transmit diseases through their droppings and urine, posing health risks to occupants. They can also cause structural damage by gnawing on wires, insulation, and wood.

Preventive measures

Seal off entry points around doors, windows, and utility openings to prevent rats from entering your home. Keep food stored in airtight containers, clean up spills promptly, and regularly dispose of garbage. Maintain cleanliness by decluttering and regularly vacuuming or sweeping areas where rats may hide.
