If you have Rats in your walls they must have found a hole from; underneath the building, In the loft Or inside the wall of a semi detached or terrace property. The majority have come up through the drainage system, either through a break in the drains or a redundant pipe which has not been capped correctly. Some will find an existing hole, from an unused outlet that hasn’t been closed correctly. Others will dig in from the garden - these are the easiest to spot.

If rats get into a cavity wall this normally means there is a hole or gap somewhere or it could mean there is a problem under the house with a drain either a break or bad building work where an old drain has been built over and it hasn’t been capped off properly which then allows rats to leave the sewage system then they will explore and tunnel around under the house until they find a gap which then affords them access to the cavity walls.
