Take a moment to go through the following signs in order to establish whether or not a rat is present within your home.
Check for Droppings
It is necessary to check all areas of the home, particularly the food cupboards for rat droppings. Make sure you pull out all packets and tins to check right at the back of cupboards and any other areas where food is stored.
Look for Teeth Marks
Marks from gnawing are a classic sign of a rat problem, so for this reason you will need to check for small teeth marks on furniture legs, the edges of flooring and many other areas of the home.
Monitor your Pets
If you own a cat or a dog, pay special attention to their behaviour over the next few days as they may hold the key to discovering the rat. If they become excitable or form an unusual interest in a specific part of the home, it is likely they have located the rat so investigate this area further.
Rats can become a problem for domestic properties at any time, but there are certain elements that make your home more likely to attract the rodents such as an increase in waste. Site clearance Birmingham will help to reduce the chances of an infestation as a result of excess garden and household rubbish.
