Rats Got Into this House in Lawrenceville, Georgia Through the Dryer Vent

The flap door to the exterior dryer vent is missing

How rats got into this house in Lawrenceville

There used to be a flap door over that opening. There isn't any more. A passing rat took notice and seized on the opportunity to get into the house.

What usually winds up happening in these cases is that the rat falls down a vertical piece of steel duct and can't climb its way back out. Then it either gnaws through the flexible part of the vent (if you're lucky) or wanders into the dryer itself (if you're not). Scraping rodent guts off a dryer fan is no fun. (Don't ask me how I know.)
