    Personally, I like cats for pest control.

    If you are seeing rats, snakes may be close behind them. Snakes feed on rats and mice.

    I was cruising the Metzer Farms site, and I saw they had some kind of setup with PVC pipes to hold rat poison. Check out the post of them building their new goose pens.

    We poisoned our rats. Cats may kill them, but mine don't like to eat them.
