Have never had an UV light, Kevin. Usually the other signs are enough to tell me where the rats are going and coming. The only guys I've consistently seen with UV lights are inspectors - for health depts and the like, who don't have the investigative experience and/or are in a hurry.

But yes, after awhile, the constant leaking on the concrete would fluoresce under UV lighting. I will check today to see if there are certain wavelengths that are better than others.

BTW, these lights tend to be expensive, but I will get back to you.
