Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. There's nothing fun about finding rats around your home or property. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.

In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.
