Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset.
Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits.
Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats.
Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed.
By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother.
In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.

Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night.
Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.

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.
The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside.
