Rats Coming Out of the Sewer into Homes.
In a previous post I referenced a KOMO 4 news story about rats entering vacant and foreclosed homes. I was watching the news again last night and saw another story which really gave me the shivers.
Growing up I'd heard about the possibility of rats entering homes via sewers and toilets. It was supposed to be a New York problem, an east coast thing, not something to worry about out here in the Emerald City. I even thought that it was supposed to be an urban legend... but I guess not.
I've chosen not to illustrate this post with any creepy pictures or cute cartoons. If you elect to re-blog it, feel free to add them if you wish, but I don't want the credit for any nightmares.
Bottom line; if you have any sign of rodents in your area, call the exterminator. Seal up any possible access to your home or listings, keep shrubs trimmed and clear the property of debris. Now one more thing, from now on put the lid down on the toilet seat. I for one have a new respect for my mother and my wife's request to do this.
