Rats Got into this House in Dawsonville, Georgia Through this Opening

The dryer vent cover is missing and the duct is sticking out from the hole about two inches which allowed rats into a house in Dawsonville Georgia

Rat entry point into a house in Dawsonville

The dryer vent cover is completely missing. Most likely it came loose and a rat or other animal tugged it off the wall. However it went missing, the resulting hole in the wall allowed rats to get into this house in Dawsonville, Georgia.

As an aside, this kind of problem can be very serious. If the rat makes it all the way to the dryer, it can get caught up in the impeller fan, which can make for a very unpleasant job or removing the rat carcass from the fan. (Don't ask how I know.) That's assuming it doesn't damage the impeller or burn out the fan motor, which are also possible outcomes.
