Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Monitor the situation. Breeding seasons vary in different areas. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. For further information see Norway Rats.

Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. They usually don't leave the attic for very long. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective.
