A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
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.
Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.

For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.
Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.
There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps.
Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs.
While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
