    Definitely rats! You will need to get rid or you will be overrun, they breed quicker than you can blink.

    Hello Everyone just a quick update regarding rat problem .There has been no fresh droppings in or around location where i took the photo's i have placed a couple of traps in the area but i'm thinking they might of moved on(hopefully) but we'll see.

    If i do catch one or two how long should i keep laying traps down ?

    What sort of traps are you using?

    Did you place the traps on the 'run' so to speak, so that they can run into them.  Did you bait them.??
