Rats are flexible, agile critters — and they can squeeze into your attic in a lot of creative ways. You might not visibly spot them running throughout your home, but what you can’t see can still cause a lot of trouble.    rats in attic orlando

5 Clues That You’ve Got Rats in the Attic

If you notice any of these signs, you might have a rat infestation in the attic.

  1. Droppings

    Rat droppings tend to pile up near food and water sources, as well as holes or cracks in the walls.

  2. Nibble marks

    You might find gnaw marks on boxes, wires, wood panels, corners, and other objects around your home.

  3. Squeaks, scampering or scratching

    They’re mostly nocturnal, but you can still hear rats running around in the daytime too.

  4. Pools of urine

    Puddles or stains from rat urine don’t just smell bad in the short term; they make walls, floors, and ceilings stink for weeks or possibly even months.

  5. Nests

    Rat nests are typically found in warm places like cabinets, closets, walls, and computer cases.

Don’t Take a Chance With These Dangers

Regardless of where they are in your home, rats pose a pretty serious threat. Here are some of the dangers that rats can bring to your property.

  • Diseases and other health risks

    Disease can spread from rats to humans through contamination of food, air filtration, and living spaces.

  • Biting and scratching

    Aside from the discomfort that comes from an animal bite, rat bites are dangerous because they’re a direct way to catch a disease.

  • Fleas and mites

    Rats will carry many other pests into your home, like fleas, mites, lice, and even ticks.

  • Structural damage

    Since rats have teeth that never stop growing, they’re amazing at gnawing through any material, like wood and wire.
