How Do You Know You’ve Got a Rat Problem?
Rats are cautious and primarily nocturnal, so you’re much more likely to see signs of their presence even if you never actually lay eyes on them. If you’ve spotted any of the following in your home, you could have a rat infestation:
Rat droppings are tapered and typically the size of a grain of rice. Each rat can produce up to 40 droppings in one night and are often concentrated in one litter area.
- Signs of chewing
Rats have large teeth that grow continuously, which makes them prone to chewing on household objects such as cords, cables, furniture, and food.
- Scratching noises
Nighttime is the perfect time to listen for scratching inside walls, attics, lofts, basements, and garages. They also grind their teeth, which can make an audible sound when the house is still.
- Rub marks
Rats have poor eyesight and therefore tend to repeatedly follow routes along baseboards and walls. The dirt and oil buildup on their coat often leaves behind marks or smudges, indicating a common route.
Rats often make nests using soft household items such as insulation, cloth fiber, garbage, paper, and cardboard.

Rats are cautious and primarily nocturnal, so you’re much more likely to see signs of their presence even if you never actually lay eyes on them. Rats are voracious eaters and can eat ⅓ of their body weight in one sitting. Human and pet food, as well as animal droppings and garbage, are common food sources for rats. They begin to forage after dark and gather food into the night. They are known to store food in hidden areas or nests. Rats generally live together in a group dominated by a large male that guards a harem of females. They have poor vision and routinely travel established routes along building foundations, baseboards, walls, and fences. Two species of rats commonly found in the Pacific Northwest are the Norway rat and the Roof rat.
- Norway Rat Also known as the Brown rat, Sewer rat, and Wharf rat, the Norway rat is brown or gray with a pink tail that is shorter than their body. The Norway rat is not a good climber, but an excellent swimmer. These are the rats generally found in areas lower to the ground, like sub-area crawlspaces and basements.
- Roof Rat Also called the Black rat and Ship rat, the Roof rat is black, gray, or brown in color with a charcoal gray tail that is longer than their body. The Roof rat is a good climber and typically avoids water. These are the rats generally found in higher areas, such as attics and crawl spaces
Don’t wait for your rat issue to become a full-blown problem. Most extermination companies simply bait and trap. At All natural Pest Elimination, we go beyond these methods to ensure they don’t come back.
