Rat in wall

Is it possible to use some kind of device like the Heatseeker to see a rat moving around inside a wall? Thanks.

Unfortunately, no. A heatseeker only indicates when it is pointing at a hot spot and forms no images. More importantly, a heatseeker will not have the sensitivity to read through a wall.

You can use a thermal imager, but these are extremely expensive ($7000 plus) Be chaeper to hire an exterminator.
