Is There A Rat In My House?
Similar to mice, it's easy to determine you have rats in your home. Rat droppings and prints differ in size from those of mice. Rats also leave grease marks along their path—mostly trim and walls. Brown rats are notorious for digging rat holes, which are burrow systems under your home. Rat burrows are often built next to solid objects like your home's foundation.
Where To Look For Rats
- Rats are commonly found in areas of your Bloomington home that have readily available nesting materials, like the attic.
- Rats also favor the space behind appliances like washers, dryers, fridges, dishwashers and more.
