We don't have any rats, We just have little mice every now and then. Have you tried using traps? We place little traps near our dogs food, and put a little piece of cheese there and that works. It is evil, but needs to be done. Mice can be very annoying when you go to sleep.

There should be bigger traps for rats, At least I've heard of them, they should work pretty well.

we also have lot's of in our house. well, my dad told me that you shouldn't harm rats, for it will take revenge on you. like biting you, or eating your stuffs. yeah it's true. for as long as you let them they wouldn't harm you. well, I think there's racumin that you could buy into grocery stores. you could use that. just don't use those sticky paper, the one that we're using to flies. rats will get mad if they saw their co-rats might see the rats being trap, and they might get revenge.

No we do not have rats. We had mice once but we caught them with these mouse bait things from a pet shop and a mouse trap. only took like 2 or 3 nights and they were gone. I've only ever been bitted by someones pet rat and that hurt. they can chew through drain pipes so imagine what that can do to you...

Yes, we had rats, I may say.. But my husband has killed all three of them within a month.. One of the last rats just got killed, this morning in the rat trap. The only reason why we had rats here, is because this mobile home has been sitting here, for so long, without no one living in it.. The rats had already made a home here, before we got here.. I hated it.. Because the rat left waste droppings on our counter top. So, we had to use bleach and all to disinfect our dishes and counter... I hope that this is the last rat.. My hubbie has been very clever in getting rid of them all.. If anymore has to come, then bringem on!

Hi jersey86, RATS! ewe... got you . We have lots of rats in the attic, I hate to hear their noise when they are running around. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because of their loud noise. Specially if the cats also chasing them on the rooftop. As I remember in my younger age I was bite by the rat while I'm asleep. Have a nice day and take care.

We have rats in our house, suddenly they appear and we do not know where did they came from. I think they are playing hide and seek and even playing in trash cans. They are eating some mess outside the house. And even eating foods inside our house. We do not know how to get rid of them.

In my hometown, I was living in a house in front of a bakery. So from time to time we see small rats playing in the drainages near our lot. I remember seeing rats as big as a medium sized cat. There was even a time that our dog cornered one. Unfortunately the rat was the one who scared our dog so it was able to run away

Plenty of long tailed rats that fight endlessly and squeek qute alot on the roof! They are a real menace and I sometimes get so angry at them when the tease my kids from the roof-ocassionally we set traps with baits, but they are so clever-they dodge the trps and continue with the menace!

You need to find out where they are coming from and block their way. If you can put your fingers under a door they can get in. Also if you have holes they can be blocked by stuffing steel wool in them. They don't like to chew through it. They have more advanced ways of trapping rats these days too.
