How to spot a rat nest:
Rat nests are usually easy to spot, and are identified by rat droppings, shredded material such as cardboard, plastic or rubbish. They usually pile all these things togheter in warm, dark places. If you spot one, make sure you contact a Rat Infestation Exterminator.
Damage to cables or other equipment can also be a sign of an infestation. Rats chew on whatever they can. They also leave an oily patch on things they touch, so be on the lookout for that.
Most of the time, rats live inside of walls so its not uncommon to hear scratches. Lookout for sounds scratches at night, when it is quiet, as that’s when they are most active.
