We had in our garden and in our basement. You know they have been there by their droppings. I put some accent lighting up in our garden. We were sitting in our garden one night and there had to by a half dozen of them climbing around on trees. I freaked. I am a pussy when it comes to rats. Snakes and spiders do not bother me. I, on the other hand, have a morbid fear of rats from some bad experiences with them in Vietnam. Needless to say, Mrs. Troybill takes care of the rats. LOL..She called our reliable exterminator and the rats were history. So my daughter has had rats in her house for several weeks and attempt after attempt was made to get rid of them. They got in the house. The exterminator had to be called several times. The one rat went to the second floor of their house and was burrowing underneath the door of the master bedroom. They would see the rat in the house but it always seemed to get away. It freaked out my grand kids. They got the mother rat. They caught her in a trap and she chewed off her leg and got away. Finally, they caught and killed the rats. She actually had 4 babies. I would have moved out until I knew the rats were gone. They can surely do a lot of damage and are very elusive.
