Hearing strange noises from the attic at night? Have mysterious dark smudges along ceilings and rafters? Does the family pet seem to watch the ceilings nervously? You could be experiencing an infestation of roof rats.

The roof rat can be found nesting in the eaves and upper stories of buildings, scurrying from place to place by way of utility lines. They carry diseases and parasites which can be passed to humans and pets. Roof rats cause property damage, often nesting in shredded insulation and gnawing on electrical wiring, plastic pipes, and door or window frames. Check with your insurance company, some insurance companies do not cover damage caused by roof rats.
The first sign of roof rats may be noises in the attic, walls and ceiling spaces of your home or business. Since roof rats live in the hidden spaces overhead, there's less chance of finding rat tracks, droppings or urine. Often there will be dark smudges of dirt and oil left along rafters and ceiling beams. In areas with high rat populations they can be seen at dusk, traveling along fences and utility lines.
