Once rats enter your house, it can be a frightening experience. Being secretive, you are less likely to notice them. But the damages they create can be visible and also cost you a lot of money. If you spot one, then the infestation has grown beyond your control and only professional help can rescue you from the severe damages. Rat droppings, stale rat smell, scratching or squeaking sound, footprints, gnawed holes, burrows and rat nests are some of the peculiar signs of rat infestation to watch out for.
Rats can pretty much chew up anything. Electric wires, garage walls, garbage bags, food containers, or anything that comes on their way. Drain rats can also chew the drain pipes which can cause leakage and heavy damage to your drainage system. One of the other worst things that can happen is to find a squirmy rat doing laps in your toilet bowl.
So it’s highly important to undertake proper prevention methods to avoid rat infestation.
