Old-School Norway Rat Burrowed its Way into this Columbus, Georgia Home

Norway rats burrowed through the soil under the water damaged lower edge of the wooden siding to get into a house in Columbus Georgia.

Rat burrow under and into a Columbus home

Norway rats are burrowing animals by nature; and upon finding no easier way to get in, a rat decided to go old school and burrow its way into this house in Columbus, Georgia.

The big problem with this is that once the rat gets under the house, it can easily travel through construction gaps and wall voids to get anywhere in the house. We're setting traps to rapidly catch and remove the rats from the house, as well as sealing around the foundation and replacing the rotted siding to prevent future rat infestations.

Obviously, we'll be doing this non-chemically. We don't use rat poisons anyway; but in a case like this, where there are so many inaccessible places where a rat could die, it would be even more irresponsible than usual.
