When you’re trying to drive a rat out of your home, there are a few ways to go about handling the job. You can set up traps, feed them rat poison, set a slice of pizza outside your front door, or call an exterminator to handle the problem for you.

Or you can go DIY, set up some barriers and slap the crap out of it with a broom. Just like these Duquesne University students did. Here’s your pest removal inspiration for the day.

If you thought that surprising slap shot as the rat flopped down the stairs was fitting for an NHL arena, you’re not alone. Here’s what happens if legendary hockey play-by-play announcer Doc Emrick calls the action.

All of which reminds us: If you have a problem, you can usually solve it with a mop, a broom, and lightning-quick front-door reflexes.
