We get rodent control calls from time to time about noises in the attic of people's homes. The general rule about which rodent you are messing with is based on what time of day you hear the noises. If you hear noises from your attic during the day, especially at dusk or dawn, you've probably got a squirrel problem. If you hear the noises at night, it is most likely a roof rat problem. If you see burrows, holes in the lower walls, or just see a rat in your home without attic noises, it is probably a Norway rat.

Sometimes what is thought to be a rat or a squirrel problem turns out to be something much bigger. If you hear something in your attic and find large droppings the size of a small to medium size dog, you have a bigger problem on your hands.
