Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) . Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats.

How To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic - Rats are one of the most problematic pest animals to deal with for those who have attic spaces, as they can squeeze through holes that are around the size of a quarter, while they are also prodigious breeders.
