Rats in garage/laundry room: all pest control or patch up holes?


Hey there!

One of our tenants at the 4-plex in San Diego reported rats in the garage and laundry room. Tenant also stated they chewed up a hole in the wall in the laundry room FROM garage.

Should we call pest control or should we patch up the holes?

Thanks!

P.S. I am a little shocked, never thought would have to deal this this problem... Never had any rats on any of my properties...

You need to do both---kill them and keep them out---call the pest control first---

Does the hole go through an interior wall between rooms? I would try glue traps on both sides.
