Rat Droppings - Rat droppings are found in concentrated areas and they produce up to 40 droppings per night. Brown rat droppings are dark brown in a tapered, spindle shape. It is about 9mm - 14mm long. They resemble a large grain of rice.
Footprints (running tracks) - Rats leave foot and tail marks in dusty, lesser used areas of buildings.
Rub Marks - Rats have a poor eyesight and use established routes along boards and walls. Dust and grease on them leave dark marks on both objects and surfaces they repeatedly brush against. Scratching sound - Black or Roof Rats are good climbers and can climb to the roof and ducts. Hearing scratching noises at night from above may suggest their presence. Brown rats are no good climbers and hence they are found in ground level or under decks and floors.
Damage - Rats have teeth that grow continuously. They cut on wood and plastic to keep them trim. One may notice ripped packages, food storages, wood, plastic to identify a rat infestation.
