Rat Damage to a Dryer Vent in Valdosta, Georgia

Rats gnawed the hood flange and the lattice of a plastic dryer vent to get into a house in Valdosta Georgia

Rats gnawed through a dryer vent in Valdosta

I'm not sure what the rats hoped to accomplish by gnawing at the hood flange. They finally figured out that the lattice was the key to getting into this house in Valdosta, Georgia.

Once rats manage to gnaw through the vent, they find themselves in the dryer duct. From there, they either gnaw through the flexible part and into the space around it, or they keep going until they get to the dryer. If they get caught in the blower impeller while the dryer is in use, they will be macerated, requiring that the blower fan be either cleaned or replaced, depending on the damage. It's not a pleasant job.

We'll install a rodent-proof dryer vent to keep rats out of this Valdosta, Georgia home.
