How To Identify Rats

  • Rats typically have a heavier and thicker body compared to mice, with a blunt snout.
  • They have small eyes, large ears, and a tail that is shorter than the length of their body.
  • Common species in South Carolina include the Norway Rat and the Roof Rat.
  • Norway Rats are usually brown with scattered black hairs, while Roof Rats are black or dark brown.
  • Signs of rat infestations include droppings, gnaw marks, and greasy trails along walls.

Rats Habits

  • Rats are nocturnal, mostly active at night.
  • They are known to gnaw on various materials, potentially causing structural damage.
  • Rats are excellent climbers and can enter homes through openings as small as a quarter.
  • They often nest in warm, hidden areas such as attics, basements, and within wall voids.
  • Rats are scavengers and will eat almost anything, including food scraps, pet food, and garbage.

How To Prevent Rats

  • Seal any holes or gaps in exterior walls larger than a quarter to prevent entry.
  • Store food, including pet food, in sealed containers and avoid leaving leftovers out.
  • Keep your home and property clean, especially in areas where food is prepared and consumed.
  • Regularly inspect dark and secluded areas of your home for signs of rat activity.
  • If you suspect a rat infestation, contact Marett Pest Control for a professional evaluation and tailored rat control solutions.
