Can You Smell A Rat?
The cliche is true: you can smell a rat infestation in your home. But before it gets to that, there are some other signs that you can spot to help you determine whether you have rats in your home or business.
- Scratching Noises
- Rub Marks Near Walls
- Rat Droppings
- Holes In Wall
- Chewed Baseboard Corners
- A Pervasive Rotting Smell
- Puddles & Dark Staining
Nevada has two common rats that can be home pests — roof rats and Norway rats.
Where To Look For Roof Rats
The roof rat is small and black or dark brown in color and prefers to climb and build nests in roofs or attics. They tend to look for warm, dry, accessible places and chew through wood and wires to get to one. These are some of the most destructive rodents and can even chew through multiple layers of plywood. Here are some other spots they like to nest in.
- Dead Palm Trees
- Ceiling Spaces
- Piles Of Wood
- Bedroom Walls
Norway Rats: Hard To Miss
Brown Norway rats can weigh up to a pound. They will enter your basement or crawlspace, burrow into garbage piles, or hang out in your garage. These rodents are omnivorous scavengers attracted to garbage and other refuse.
The size of these rats makes them a little more obvious. Their nests might be outside, but they might have found a hole in your home that allows them to come and go as they please.
Protect Your Health & Your Home
Without extermination, rats will continue to breed and create waste, which causes a more significant problem the longer you wait. Rats bring with them these undesirables.
- Waste (Droppings)
- Parasites (Fleas & Ticks)
