Failed DIY Rat-Proofing Attempt in Douglasville, Georgia

Homeowner tried using caulk to keep rats out of a house in Douglasville Georgia but the rats just gnawed the area adjacent to the caulking.

DIR rat-exclusion fail in Douglasville

What happened here was that the homeowner tried filling the hole the rats were using to get into the house with caulking. The rats just started gnawing their way in around the caulking. They actually could have chewed through it if they wanted to, but I reckon the water-damaged wood was easier to gnaw through than the caulking.

We'll trap and remove the rats and seal around the whole house with a rodent-proof product to keep rats out of this Douglasville, Georgia home.
