This was way too good not too share! As I have said before…..we see it all! If not for nothing the pest control business is certainly interesting and entertaining! What am I looking at in this picture? We call this one mad man with a hammer. This guy had a rat in his house so he used store bought rat poison and the result is a dead rotting rat carcass somewhere in his house. The bonus is the 2,000 blow flies that are swarming in all rooms of his house. The odor was so bad and offensive that he started ripping out his sheetrock to find it. After turning his basement into a disaster area he never found the dead rat.
EHS was able to come in and solve the rat issue. What we do is once rats have breached the structure we do not use a rodenticide for the very reason this picture depicts. We structurally exclude the rats and use mechanical traps until the problem is eliminated. Just another draw back to “do it yourself” pest control.
