The Wrath of a Packrat.

7/13/2016 (Permalink)

Cleaning The Wrath of a Packrat. Packrats normally live outfoors in natural habitats but they often find a way to dwell inside buildings.

Packrats (also known as woodrats) are a species of rodent we see alot of here in the desert areas of North America. They tend to use rocky caves or the base of prickly pear or cholla cactus as their dwelling space.  Packrats reproduce at the rate of 5 litters a year with an average of 5 offspring per litter!  

What happens when humans develop housing in areas where woodrats have lived for hundreds of thousands of years? Packrats find safety and shelter inside the walls or attics of buildings.  While inside they can do some serious damage on wires and make a complete mess spreading their feces everywhere.  Nesting spots within insulation and stored clothing and other packing material become a save haven for packrats.  

While preventing an invasion of packrats might be more of a pest control issue (ask who we recomend), our technicians can deep clean any filthy situation.  If you find yourself infested with a family of packrats (even just one lonley woodrat can wreak havoc) please give us consideration in cleaning up the mess "Like it never even happened."
