Rodents Packing a Punch? Why You Need to Eliminate Pack Rats from Your Garden

Evan Patterson

Pack rats get their name because they love finding and collecting random objects, which they use to build their nests. But the tiny rodents pack more than just random objects—they pack a serious punch if you aren't careful. If you have pack rats in your garden, you need to get rid of them before you become a victim of their nefarious ways.

Pack Rats Steal Without Remorse

With their large eyes and adorable faces, pack rats look innocent. But don't be fooled. These tiny rodents have no regard for the law. They steal without remorse, and—similar to rodents—they love shiny objects.

Pack rats go to great lengths to steal the shiny objects their hearts desire. They're gifted climbers that do their bidding at night. They scale homes like four-legged ninjas and squish their tiny bodies through any openings they find. After entering a house, they grab the shiniest objects in sight, and they steal without guilt.

If you have pack rats in your garden, and you suddenly find jewelry or silverware missing from your home, check the garden. You'll probably find your missing valuables in a pack rat's nest.

Pack Rats Can't Help but Start Fires 

Because they're natural explorers with inquisitive minds, pack rats find themselves in all sorts of places no one wants them. Under the cover of darkness, the stealthy rodents get into cars, air conditioning units, and attics.

Unfortunately, these nighttime expeditions often lead pack rats to electrical wiring. And, even more unfortunately, pack rats happen to like chewing on wires.

You can see where this is going. Pack rats, like other rodents, have been known to chew through wires and start electrical fires. Though they may not have a motive, their intentions—good, bad, or ugly—won't do much to comfort you if they start a fire on your property.

Pack Rats Casually Spread the Deadly Hantavirus

As if stealing valuables and starting fires wasn't bad enough, pack rats also transmit the dangerous hantavirus. Acting like furry terrorists, infected pack rats transport the life-threatening disease everywhere they go. They spread the hantavirus through their urine, feces, and saliva.

Don't gamble with your garden. Get rid of the pack rats before the perilous pests contaminate your plants. Call a rodent control company today to learn more. They can help you by finding the rat nests, get rid of the rats, and ensure they won't come into your garden again.

Exploring The Benefits Of Hiring Pest Control Experts

Hi there, my name is Taylor Stone. Ant problems do not just go away on their own. I thought that keeping my home clean would eliminate ants from the premises after they stopped finding food lying about. Boy was I wrong about that. The ants kept streaming inside the home in tiny lines that caused me great distress. The ants went into my pantry and even tried to go into the fridge. I eventually had to call in pest control experts to remove these critters from the vicinity. I was astonished at how quickly and efficiently the pest control experts worked to resolve this trying problem. They got more done in a few weeks than I could accomplish in a year's time. I hope to share the benefits of hiring a pest control expert immediately upon noticing a problem. Thank you.
