An exterminator came a couple of days later to eradicate all of the rats.
The marijuana dispensary where I work has a storage area that is behind the actual store. We rarely go into the storage area at all. It is mostly filled with promotional materials. We have been in the room quite a few times over the last three weeks because of the holidays. We’re moving items around to make room for new stuff. We were looking for something specific in the storage area when I heard a strange sound. It was louder than a bug or roach moving. It sounded like it had heavier feet. I immediately told the other manager that I thought there was a rat. The guy laughed and said there was absolutely no way that a rat could get into the storage materials. We had to go back into the storage area and a rat ran across my foot. There was no denying the rat problem after the thing moved swiftly across my feet. The rat came from a corner of the room where we had several boxes of old products. The rat had chewed a hole through the side of the box. The other manager contacted the owner of the business and they ordered us to seal up the room and stay out of it. An exterminator came a couple of days later to eradicate all of the rats. I don’t know if it worked or not. I haven’t been there in a couple of days. I keep finding a reason to send someone else to get the things we might need.I’m sure the pest guy removed the problem, but I really don’t like rats and other animals that scurry on the ground.
