We recently learned we have a rat problem, they ate through the dishwasher hose under the kitchen sink. There was Feces. His resolution was to come and put poison under the house. He says he will not come to remove the dead rats, that yes it will "stink" for about a week and then the smell will go away. I'm NOT OK with this. Is it his responsibility to remove the dead rats. Is it OK for him to just lay poison and wash his hands of the problem? I have a 2 year old in the home with us. We have been awakened every night at 4 AM by the sound of a rat eating away at something in the master bath. Does he have the responsibility of calling a proper exterminator to take care of the problem, further, should we be expected to deal with the dead rotting rats under our home? Doesn't seem right to me.
