Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.

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. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.

Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats.
