Rats are most active during the night, therefore, it is often easier to spot the signs of a rat infestation than the actual rat.

Below we explain the signs that could indicate that you have a potential rat problem.

Rat droppings

Brown Rat droppings are dark brown in a tapered, spindle shape - like a grain of rice.

Rub marks

Grease and dirt on their bodies leave smudges on surfaces.

Rat nests

Rats will shred available materials such as loft insulation, cardboard and other soft items to make nests.

Scratching noises

Black rats are agile climbers and often found in lofts, so you might hear scratching noises at night

Rat holes

Brown rats are well known for digging extensive burrow systems for shelter, food storage and nesting.


Rats leave foot and tail marks in dusty, less-used areas of buildings.

If you have heard scratching noises or spotted any of the signs mentioned, we recommend acting quickly to ensure the potential infestation doesn’t spread any further.
