Roof rats are the worst rodent pest in the state of Florida and most abundant. The Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus) that is familiar to most people is rare in Florida. Roof rats consume and destroy stored animal and human food, attack fruit crops, and take up residence in attics, soffits, hollow walls, and out-buildings.

Anyone have them ?
yes... not a big deal... if you live on a golf course you got them. its a given. However, you can have a roofer, cover the vent openings with the proper caps to prevent rodents from entering the inside of your roof... cheap to add and still lets the air in and out. been there done that.
