DIY Attempt to Keep Rats out of a House in Stone Mountain, Georgia

The homeowner applied mesh to only part of the deteriorated siding of the house and the rats got in through the unsealed part right next to the mesh

Failed DIY rat-proofing in Stone Mountain

One has to wonder why someone would seal only part of a gap that rats were using to get into a house, but that appears to be what happened here. The mesh has been there for a while -- it's been painted over -- so maybe the area to the right wasn't yet deteriorated when it was applied.

We'll trap and remove the rats who are already in the house and seal it up to keep new rats from getting in.
