Signs of Infestation:
A Roof Rat infestation can be extremely dangerous for your family members and pets, especially if it gets into a severe state. If you start seeing rodents around your home, this is the number one sign of an overcrowding problem. Roof rats don't like to come out during daylight hours and do most of their feeding at night. They usually build their nests in areas of a home that is insulated, such as an attic. You may notice an increase of rat droppings as well. The difference with roof rat droppings compared to Norway rat droppings is the shape. Roof rat droppings have pointed ends, where as the Norway rats are more capsuled shaped. Last but not least, you will find grease marks in areas that these rodents travel and nest in. These marks are produced from their fur depositing it. You want to be sure that you cover up windows or vents that would allow rats to enter in. Long tree branches close to your window can also serve as a bridge for rats to get into your home.
