So I've lived in a town home(it's a 2 story duplex kind of cept someone is in the middle) for about 7 years now. While smoking a cig outside in the backyard tonight I saw a big ass rat scurrying across atop of my fence. I don't see any during the daytime and I've only seen one around about three times starting two weeks ago but never before.
I got poison in the garage and everything looks clear as well as the inside of the house but should I be concerned yet? I don't have any pets but should I go ahead and put rat poison in the backyard or contact a pest control to have em use traps.
Any advice duders? It's so disgusting to see a rat scurry atop my backyard fence at night. Sucks as I've been here for years and never had this issue before.
