An extermination company used the Alamance-Burlington School System’s spring break last week to wipe out an infestation of rats at Eastlawn Elementary School.

The teachers at the school had filled out a form to report any damage they noticed from the rats, and Bugout set traps, found and removed a nest and also sealed holes or passageways that had been used to enter the building, said James Shuler, digital media coordinator for ABSS.
