I swear, these animals work for the devil!

Another rat died in my house and I'm afraid this one died inside the the freaking fridge! Not the where one puts the food, but where the motor and cables are.

The first one ( months ago ) died inside the oven. Every time we turned on the oven, this foul smell would rise up. DISGUSTING!!

I don't know what to do. This animal crapped in one of the couches, inside one of my purses ( THERE WAS NO FOOD HERE, JUST A FLATIRON AND A BOOK! ) on one of the beds, and DD's stroller!! Thank GOD that's not the only stroller she has but its the way we use when we're going to be out all day cause it's really comfy.


Others who live here REFUSE to give other traps a try. The only one used is the sticky trap.

Suggestions please?? ANYTHING! I'm to the point where I don't care what anyone says in this house... I'm going to get rid of them, its not safe!

Oh gosh... I remember when my son was your daughter's age and we had a rat problem (HUGE rats) and I didn't want to use poison, but my inlaws did and then they died in the walls and it STANK for months.

Are you roommates with other people renting? I would contact the landlord if I were you if you are renting.

I did contact my landlord and all he did was offer me sticky traps said he couldn't do anything else cause they're all over...

Can you move? Honestly, a rodent infestation would make the property uninhabitable, and therefore, grounds to break any lease.

Even if you can't afford to move, I'd certainly threaten to do it. NO ONE should have to live like this.

call the county health department and tell them what's going on. see what your rights are. even see if there is an agency that helps with renters rights. we have one here called project sentinel.

I informed the Super, said he'll call the exterminators.

I woke up this morning to a foul smell in the room... I think one of them also died in here.
