How to Identify a rat invasion

One of the key points in identifying whether or not you’ve got a rat invasion is to keep an eye on your trash. Rats are usually attracted to garbage to find food. They also make nests and start living in areas near your garbage and avoid coming out during the daytime.

Watch out for the holes

Rats will chew through wood or plastic pipes to create a path for themselves, which can be visible due to the droppings on them. You will be able to find evidence of rats nearby by looking at how chewed up such areas are along with any foul smells like urine or droppings.

Another effective way to watch out for a rat invasion is to look out for their behavior. They are nocturnal creatures and will only come out at night. If they’re outside during the daytime, they’re probably looking for food.

To hear them, listen for scratching and muttering sounds nearby.

You can buy pepper spray in any local grocery store or department store that has a hardware section. You should be careful not to use pepper spray indoors because it is irritating to your eyes.
