Failed Breaking and Entering Attempt by a Norway Rat in Atlanta

Rats gnawed most of the screen behind a metal foundation vent away in an unsuccessful attempt to get through the vent into the crawl space of a house in Atlanta

Rat damage to a foundation vent screen in Atlanta

What happened here was that a rat gnawed away most of the screen behind the foundation vent in an unsuccessful attempt to get into the crawl space of this house in Atlanta. There's no evidence that any rats actually made it into the house, however. There are no gnaw marks or rub marks on the vent lattice, and no droppings or other evidence of rats were found in the crawl space.

Rats can gnaw through aluminum if they have to. Usually, however, they'll abandon the attempt and find an easier house to get into, if one is available.

We'll install better screening behind this vent, more to keep mice out than rats, and advise the customer to keep an eye on it; but that should be all the work that's needed at this house.
