Rats are the most annoying animals when it comes to leaving their droppings around your home. A single rat leaves about 25,000 droppings in a single year. They constantly leave droppings almost 4 to 5 times a day. When their droppings are fresh, they are dark in colour and supple in texture, but in three days they harden and lose their colour.

Adult rat's droppings are up to ½ inches long, spindle shaped with pointed ends. These droppings are unique because they take time to harden up. They usually take about 2-3 days to harden up. Their odour isn't very distinct because their diet is never fixed. They are usually scattered around a place because they never stand still. Therefore the next time you notice droppings of this peculiarity you know what has infested your home.
