Rats got into a Douglasville, Georgia Home Through the Foundation Vent

A piece of flexible electrical conduit was poked through a metal foundation vent at a house in Douglasville Georgia which allowed Norway rats into the crawl space

Human-assisted rat entry in Douglasville

Here's another case of a human-assisted Norway rat infestation. An electrician poked a piece of BX cable through the foundation vent, which gave the rats a head start gnawing their way into the crawl space of this house in Douglasville, Georgia.

In fairness, rats can easily gnaw through flimsy aluminum foundation vent covers even without human assistance, especially when they're corroded like this one is. We'll replace the foundation vents with sturdier ones to keep rats out of the house, and trap and remove any rats that are already in the crawl space.
