Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building.

They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.

Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control.
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem.
These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses.
