Signs of a Rat Infestation

Being naturally active at night, it can be hard to determine whether you have rats. If you think you may have a rat infestation, here are the classic signs to look out for:

  • Rat Smears - Rats frequently brush up against hard objects, so look out for grease marks or smudges from the Rat’s body.
  • Droppings – Usually sausage shaped approximately 1-2cm long.
  • Damage to fabric and merchandise of the building.
  • Characteristic smell – Rats often leave a smell similar to ammonia, in enclosed areas this can be extremely strong.
  • Nesting materials – Cardboard, wood, shredded insulation etc...

The risks of a Rat Infestation

  • Rats can harbour infections such as Salmonella, Trichinosis, Hantavirus, Rat bite fever,  Murine typhus and Weil’s disease. Rats have been responsible for outbreaks of food poisoning. Rats can also carry ticks, fleas and mites.
  • Rats gnaw hard surfaces to keep their constantly growing incisor teeth short. They can cause damage to the building by gnawing through plastic, cables, wood and even mild steel.
  • Underneath the Rat, the wet fur covered in urine can spread bacteria and viruses to table tops, work services and anywhere the Rat has climbed or touched.

The consequences to your business

  • Having a Rat Infestation can have a negative effect on your health and hygiene. Rat problems can also affect food hygiene ratings.
  • Rat infestations can be costly and it may be necessary to temporary close the business.
  • Business closure or fines could be the result of failing to comply with legislation, including Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), Food Safety Act (1990) and Prevention of Damage by Pests Act (1949).
