How To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic - Rats are one of the most problematic pest animals to deal with for those who have attic spaces, as they can squeeze through holes that are around the size of a quarter, while they are also prodigious breeders. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same.
