You can find the request here, outside the Dining Hall.

At the beginning of Chapter 9 you will enter the Great Lobby of the Castle. In this area you will find the Headless Statue, which is a story objective. To the left of this statue is the door leading to the Dining Hall. Next to the Dining Hall door, on the wall, is the Pest Control 2 Request. It has the following details.

  • Request: Exterminate all the rats.
  • Area: Grand Hall & Library.
  • Reward: Spinel x3

To earn the reward you need to find all 3 Rats and kill them. This is fairly easy to do as you will encounter them as you go about completing the main story objectives.

Look for the rat near the snake statues.

The first rat is located in the Dining Hall. When you first enter the room you will see it walking around near the Caged Serpent Statue. Shoot it to earn 1/3 Progress.

While you are in this area you will want to also snag the Blue Medallion for that request. Additionally, if you are stumped on the Dining Table puzzle, see our guide for help with that.

Rat 3

The rat can be found as you head towards the Library.

The final rat can only be found after completing Chapter 9 and starting Chapter 10. When you start the Chapter 10 you can now enter the Library. Before reaching the Library you will go down a hallway. After you crouch under the desk you will find the final rat walking around.

Once you have completed the rat killing head back to the merchant and speak to him. He will give you the reward for completing the request which is 3x Spinel. Spinel can be used to trade for certain things that are unobtainable otherwise.
