Signs of a Rodent Infestation

Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR | Beaverton OR

Rat near gnawed bag of flour on kitchen counter. Antworks serving Portland OR & Vancouver WA talks about signs of a rodent infestation.

Rodents are some of the most disgusting pests and unfortunately, they have adapted well to our urban and suburban environments so anyone is at risk of an infestation. Rats and mice are not only icky-looking, but they are destructive and pose significant health risks–not to mention their capability of spreading parasites.

As soon as you become aware of a rodent infestation in your Portland or Vancouver area property, it’s time to call the exterminators at Antworks.

Signs of a Rat Infestation

Rats are cunning and nocturnal so you might not always see them, but they do leave behind some signs of their presence which are listed below.

  • Rat droppings: rats leave their droppings everywhere. Their droppings are odorous and hazardous.
  • Rub marks: rats have very oily fur. When they’re getting acclimated to a new area, they’ll often stay close to walls, rubbing against them so you might see oil marks left on your walls.
  • Gnaw marks: rodent teeth never stop growing so they will gnaw on nearly everything. Check your pantry, attic, basement, and around your home for signs things have been chewed.
  • Nesting materials: shredded up newspapers, cardboard, books, or insulation may all be signs of rats nesting in your home.
  • Unpleasant odors: rat urine and rat droppings are very pungent and become stronger the bigger the infestation.

If you have rats, the odds of you having a mouse infestation are also great too because both of these rodents are attracted to the same conditions and food sources.
