He walks between worlds and travels through timeslaying monsters, solving mysteries, and philosophizing with his fists amidst a barrage of butchered quotes and borrowed styles in a series of seemingly disparate, sometimes violently visceral vignettes/5(15). Decking - check the edges of decked areas for signs of damage from gnawing and burrowing.; Sheds - look for rat holes (entrances to burrows) around the edges of sheds and out buildings.; Garages - check for gaps around door frames or holes gnawed at the bottom of wooden doors. If you have an integral garage check around the internal door as well, and any vents that could give entry into other.
