The expert took to TikTok (@twinhomeexperts) to tell his followers the genius way to get rid of pesky rodents.
The clip, captioned: "RAT Hack we want to share…" begins by panning the bottom of a door with some strange looking materials in front of the gap.
A green mesh layer with a metal sponge can be seen blocking the gap beneath the door.
"If you have any potential sources of where you think the rats are coming in and out, what you can do is take a sponge, fill that particular hole… and sure enough it will give the verification that the rats are coming from the basement up underneath that door," he said,filming a chewed up piece of sponge.
"They chewed the heck out of that to get to the dog food in the kitchen," he added.
