Pack Rat Den Removal

It’s starting to get cooler outside and we are approaching the Winter months.  However, there are still pests to be aware of during this season.  One of the pests you should worry most about during Winter in our region is Pack Rats.

Pack Rats are 6 to 7 inches in size not including their tail.  The length of their tail is about 5 to 6 inches long.  They are brownish grey with a bright white under coat.  Pack Rats also have very large eyes and ears.  This particular pest is known for the giant mess it can make.

Pack Rats are very active at night and move indoors during the Winter months.  However, it is also very common to find them in prickly pear cactus for protection purposes.

The best way to keep Pack Rats from making your home their home is to exclude potential entry points.  Cracks, crevices, holes, gaps, and windows are just some areas to target.  Pack Rats are attracted to shiny objects.  In fact, if a Pack Rat finds a shinier object than the one it has, it will replace the new shiny object with the old one.

Other options for rodent control include trapping and rodenticide baiting.  Once the rodents are eliminated, a Pack Rat den removal should be performed by a pest control professional.  A Pack Rat den removal eliminates the chance of Pack Rats returning.  If you are having a problem with Pack Rats or would like a Pack Rat den removal, call Essential today at (520) 886-3029.  We can answer any question about Pack Rats you may be having and help to handle any Pack Rat situation.
