When I had mice the solution was sealing every tiny hole to the outside.  Mice can come through a hole about 1/2″ in diameter.  The exterminator filled all holes and cracks with steel wool and/or that expandable foam stuff.  After he did so, we killed the ones already in the house with snap traps, and that was that.  I assume rats are the same, only ickier.
Also, it’s probably not a bad idea to stick a poison bait station outside.  I have one, and I refill the poison about once a month.
