Rats!? Found some droppings at home, freaked out. Now what?
posted by drpynchon to Home & Garden (17 answers total)
We've lived in an apartment for 2 years without any prior evidence of vermin. We just had a run of rain here and this morning found rat droppings around the floor boards of the kitchen and dining room. No actual rat siting, no open or tampered food containers anywhere, no obvious holes in the walls. We cleaned up the place and basically bleached the apartment.
Do I now nuke the place (or make my landlord), give the landlord notice and move, or hope it's an isolated incident and take a wait-and-see approach? Is there another option I'm missing?
