These are the spots to check if you believe there are rats nearby. Providing them with a nesting place, shelter and food storage, burrows are dug into substantial systems that could even cause damage to buildings if allowed to continue unchecked. A sure indication of a rat burrow is usually a smooth sided hole close to a solid surface, where the comings and goings of hairy bodies have polished the burrow entrance. When you spot holes but aren't positive that they are rats, they will usually be about two to four inches across. You can find out if rats are still using it by partially blocking up the entrance hole to see if they come back and remove it.
