I recently discovered a problem with rats at work.
I manage a medical and recreational marijuana dispensary in downtown Denver, Colorado. The marijuana dispensary is next to a bakery. The bakery closed down for business about six months ago. When the bakery shut down, we noticed a problem with rats in the dispensary. The rats were showing up in the basement where we kept all of our recreational and medical marijuana supplies. I contacted and extermination company when I found a box of dab pens that had a whole. The mice tried to chew through the box, but they did not prefer the contents. None of the items had to be thrown out, but I did not want the rat problem to persist. I got approval from the owner of the Denver dispensary. I contacted an exterminator and gave the company all of the details about our problem. The next day the extermination company showed up early, before we were open for business. They said it would be better for them to perform their work when no one was around. They used some poisonous substances and sprayed the entire basement for rats. They set up a couple of traps as well. We had to stay out of the basement for three hours while the poison was working. The rats have no chance now that we are prepared. They must have been feasting like kings at the bakery. I can only assume they needed to find another food source after the bakery closed down and that’s why they are suddenly inside of the weed shop.
