You need Ivermectin. You can get Beaphar spot-on for rats from most pet shops or online. One pipette on each rat showing symptoms should do the trick. Also it's worth checking if there might be an underlying cause for the outbreak as rats that are ill or strressed are more likely to suffer a mite burden.
