Pest control service has been coming to the House every day for the last 15 years
Pests on Capitol Hill aren’t limited to stubborn Republicans or recalcitrant Democrats. There have always been real vermin roaming around the Capitol complex, dating back to the days when cats used to stalk the halls to keep them under control.
Recently, a flurry of mouse sightings have reportedly disturbed the House side. The rodents have been spotted in members’ offices. They have scurried through the Rayburn House Office Building cafeteria. In the Longworth House Office Building, they have broken up coffee breaks in the Dunkin’ Donuts, which opened in 2016.
