Make sure you figure out how they are getting into your home or the problem will continue.They chewed holes in the eaves. Unless we replace all of our eaves(!) with metal boards (IIRC he's replacing the chewed boards with aluminum ones), there's nothing we can do*. I wondered if they climbed up a beautiful loquat tree by that corner of the house, but the rat wrangler said they're perfectly able to climb right up the brick walls <sigh>. A few years ago we replaced the flimsy crawl-space vents with strong, rodent-proof vents. Rat Dude noted that we were wise to do so as crawl spaces are common entry points for vermin. IIRC, that cost $650.* He said some companies sell expensive rat preventives such as impregnating wooden eaves with chemicals, but they're both toxic and ineffective.
