Rats they are capable of living in any part of the architecture of buildings no matters its attic or basement you will find them everywhere. Especially you will find them in walls as in a number of situations they prefer making nests in walls of buildings because it is easy for them to run up and down in walls using pipes and wires because this makes travelling simpler and easier for them. Rats in walls even the thought is good enough to freeze blood in vessels, but when this actually happen you are left with no other choice than taking effective steps for their removal. Rats simply love the idea of living inside homes in fact many of them are born inside houses generally in attic. You might not be aware of the fact, but they can use dozens of entry points for extending their reach in your property.

Once they are successful in reaching attic, then it becomes easy for them to find their way down in walls of houses as they seek new areas and other places for getting the best possible advantages.

Obviously for this you must have a detailed knowledge related with architecture of your property so it will be nice to keep an expert with you. Use steel for sealing the entry points because rats will not be capable of chewing them.
