Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back.
The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.

Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States.
They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
