Maybe you’ve seen a rat scurrying along in your house, and maybe you haven’t. But those rat droppings in the attic didn’t come out of thin air. Whether or not you still have rodents in your house, what the rat or rats leave behind needs to be dealt with.
Rat Droppings – The Facts
You may think it is no big deal to leave the rat pellets in your attic insulation. After all, you can’t even smell them. Before you choose to ignore the feces, consider a few potential problems that rat droppings can cause:
- Leakage into nearby walls and ceiling, causing disgusting smells and damage
- Insulation damage
- Attraction of more rodents to your house
Of course, a larger rat infestation can do more damage than a single rat. They could tear up insulation to make nests and leave behind more feces and urine. In some cases, you will need to replace all of your attic’s insulation and do a thorough clean-up job to sanitize the area.
What We Can Do for You
Fortunately, you do not have to do this alone; Critter Control® of Ft. Lauderdale is here to help. We believe in offering comprehensive wildlife management, which not only includes removing any nuisance critters from your house, but also ensuring that they don’t come back and restoring your house to its pre-critter condition.

To be most efficient, we will extricate all rats from your house and rat-proof it to make sure they can’t find a way in. Then, depending on the severity of your rat invasion, we will determine whether you can just get rid of the soiled portions of the insulation or if it is better to replace it entirely.
