Failed DIY Attempt to Keep Rats Out of the Basement of a House in Atlanta

Someone tried to seal rats out of the basement of a house in Atlanta by filling a football sized hole near the sill plate with insulating foam but the rats gnawed right through it

Failed DIY rat-proofing attempt in Atlanta

The homeowner tried to seal that hole with hardware-store insulating foam; but as my regular readers (both of them) know, rats can gnaw right through that stuff. In fact, they probably enjoyed a good belly laugh at the homeowner's expense while they were chewing their way through the foam.

We'll non-chemically trap and remove the rats from the basement (and anywhere else in the house they've made their way to), and then properly seal them out of the building so they can't get back in.
