Envirosafe Termite & Pest

Here we go again. This time it’s Edmund Stammers who disagrees with me. I welcome those disputing my blog posts but please be ready to back up your opinion with substantive facts. My creative pest control blog posts and dialogue are spawned from the industry’s most respected reference book. Pretty civil discussion, but again, I’m right, you’re wrong. Mr. Stammers asserted “any entomologist worth his/her salt” would disagree that humans can contract tapeworm from swallowing a flea. Not sure sure if there’s a more celebrated entomologist on planet earth than Dr. Nancy Hinkle, but I’m certain Mr. Stammers credentials don’t come close to matching those of Dr. Nancy Hinkle, Ph.D. and the author of the material I referenced. She’s arguably the most renowned entomologist in the World.Β  Here is the discussion generated by my blog post from two days ago about the same subject.

Happy Holidays from Envirosafe Temite & Pest

Happy Holidays from Envirosafe Temite & Pest

What’s up with Charlotte? For the third time this month we’ve received a call about rats in a Charlotte resident’s toilet. Rats are creepy, but when they invade the smallest room in our house via plumbing pipes connected to the toilet, it’s enough to make anyone feel violated.Β  The sewer rat, aka Norway rat, swims like a fish and is commonly known to invade toilets in big cities, but rarely do we get calls about this happening in the Queen City.

There have been no major events such as significant rain, construction, or other environmental factors that we are aware of that would cause such a sewer to bathroom invasion. Our clients are panicked and with good reason. Our rodent service includes sanitizing harborage areas of the structures rats are invading and we hit the crawl space of this home with anti-microbial because there were dead rats there too, but the source of the problem was ultimately traced to the city sewer lines. It’s understandable how this real life terror with toilet infesting sewer rats has turned our client’s life upside down. She shared a few nightmares she’s had at night about her toilet rats and after I sent my nephew, Storm Davis, into enemy rat territory armed only with a Swiss Army knife, respirator, shovel, and a pair of nads, I would opine his dreams may likewise be not so sweet tonight.
