The Signs of a Rat Infestation 

Short of actually seeing the rat(s), some less obvious—but no less important—warning signs include these: 

  • Droppings: Finding rodent droppings around the property, especially in kitchens, pantries, and storage areas, is an indicator of rat presence. Large quantities of droppings are a further alarm bell, signifying a large-scale infestation.
  • Gnaw marks: Evidence of gnawing on wood, plastic, or wiring suggests the activity of rats, as they constantly gnaw to keep their teeth from growing too long. 
  • Nesting materials: Rats, like mice, are prone to use shredded paper, fabrics, and other soft materials to build their nests. 
  • Grease marks: Rats often leave greasy smudges along walls and baseboards as they navigate through their established pathways. Extensive and recurring grease marks, particularly in high-traffic areas, may signal a pervasive rat presence.
  • Strange noises: Scratching, scurrying, or squeaking sounds, particularly at night, may indicate the presence of rats within walls, ceilings, or attics. Persistent and amplified noise levels may indicate a sizable infestation.
  • Your pets act strangely: An example might be your dog barking or repeatedly pawing at the same area. They could be reacting to the presence of rats that are otherwise unseen. Consistent and heightened pet agitation may indicate a severe rat infestation. Listen to your pets. 

The Dangers of Rat Infestations

The longer you wait to call our Dallas rat control office, the more likely it is that hazards like these could start to appear: 

  • Health risks: Rats can transmit various diseases to humans through their droppings, urine, and saliva. Diseases such as leptospirosis, hantavirus, and salmonellosis pose serious health risks for people exposed to contaminated areas.
  • Allergens and asthma triggers: Rat dander, urine, and feces can act as potent allergens, triggering allergic reactions and exacerbating asthma symptoms in sensitive people. 
  • Food contamination: Rats can contaminate stored food items with their droppings, urine, or fur. 
  • Property damage: Rats are notorious for gnawing on electrical wires, wooden structures, and insulation, posing a fire hazard and compromising the structural integrity of buildings.
  • Parasites and secondary pests: Rats can harbor fleas, ticks, and mites, which may infest the property and pose additional health risks to humans and pets. Furthermore, the presence of rats can attract other pests, creating a compounded infestation issue that demands comprehensive pest control measures.
  • Reputation damage: For businesses, a rat infestation can lead to reputational damage and loss of customer trust. Negative word-of-mouth, online reviews, and public health violations can significantly impact the viability of a business.
