Well.... It's really hard for me to give any definitive advice, since I don't know (exactly) all of the methods he used, nor what (exactly) the local conditions were like on the occasion of his treatment. It's really not fair for me to try and guess the answers to those questions, especially when YOUR guy KNOWS all those details and will be much better placed than I to estimate the prognosis of your rat problem. So give him a call and hit him with those same questions.

For the most part, around here, (in the northeast) we have Norway rats rather than roof rats, and the most economical way to handle them (for the customer) is usually by way of a baiting campaign. Naturally, there's always the possibility that there might be a "smell" problem, not a whole lot you can do about that once it happens, I always inform the customer about that possibility. But baiting is normally the quickest way to solve the rat problem, traps can take awhile and oftentimes, especially with Norways, you won't get the King (alpha) rat with a trap. Which means that itís always possible to miss the most important rat!

But it always depends on many factors, best assessed by the man on the scene, your exterminator.
