TO UPDATE: NV Energy confirmed that rodents caused the blackout at the Paris hotel on the Las Vegas Strip on Thursday evening.
The situation has been evident on the Strip for years: rats are present but rarely seen.
“The strip corridor is beautiful … you think about how beautiful it is and what a great place rodents too,” said Russell Hedland of Las Vegas Pest Control.
From the restaurants, hotel rooms, resorts, dumpsters, and groceries that are dropped on sidewalks, the Las Vegas Strip is a rodent buffet. Rodents congregate where people congregate.
Rats are known to chew electrical wires, pipes, and drywall, causing significant damage from failures and flooding.
Experts say the rats have migrated to Talviertel since the strip was closed.
“Rats still had to eat. They have spread even more. We get more calls than in my 26 years in the industry. It is very important for homeowners to be proactive, ”said Hedland.
Checking for holes, spaces in walls, and nests in the bushes is always a good preventative measure, including hiring a professional. The harm from rats is far worse than the cost of prevention.
