Rats are not native to the U.S.; however, in the wild, they do serve a beneficial purpose. They consume plant and animal matter that would build up if it were not for opportunistic feeders like rats.
Rats in a home or other building is a much different story. Once a rat finds access to the inside, it will set to work making rat holes and nests in attic insulation, walls, floors, in furniture (such as in the bottom of dresser drawers), and mattresses.
Nest size tends to be large, 10 rat babies being quite common. This leads to a lot of damage. The rats will go through your home chewing on stuffed animals, papers, bedding, books, and anything else they have access to.
There are many signs that you have a rat infestation in addition to the chewed walls and other items. Often the items that get chewed are hidden and not as readily noticeable as other signs, such as droppings and actually seeing and hearing rats.
The crazy thing about seeing a rat is that by the time you see one rat, you probably already have an infestation of several rats. At the very least, the infestation is a mother rat and several of her offspring.
You may hear scratching sounds in the walls, behind the furniture, and in the attic. There may also be a weird smell in the air that you can’t quite put your finger on just what it is or where it is coming from.
Once you realize you are dealing with rats you need to take action to get rid of the rats. Using a professional to remove them for you will save you time and energy. It is important to choose a professional that removes rats with trapping. Using poisons leaves a rat to die and rot in your walls and attic.
After the rats are removed, it is important to prevent them from coming back. Following through with sealing up rat entry points is the best thing to do.
