Handyman's Failed Attempt to Rat-Proof a House in Cumming, Georgia

A handyman used mortar mix to try to seal around pipes going through a brick wall to keep rats out of a Cumming Georgia home but the mortar crumbled and fell out of the hole.

Handyman's failed rat-proofing attempt in Cumming

The mistake the handyman made in his attempt at rat control at this Cumming, Georgia home was trying to seal a hole with mortar. That doesn't work because mortar isn't made to seal holes. It shrinks, crumbles, and erodes. Mortar also isn't made for rodent exclusion. Rats can gnaw through it if they want to.

So we'll call this a case of a good idea -- sealing the rats out of the house -- that was poorly executed.
