The White-throated Wood Rat, often referred to as the Packrat, is very common in the southwest desert. Far from being just a nuisance pest, packrats can be quite destructive. They can cause significant damage to automobiles, A/C units, pool equipment, and attic spaces. Additionally, packrat nests can harbor other pests such as kissing bugs, ticks, fleas, scorpions, and snakes.
The solution to long-term effective packrat control is a process that includes eliminating the packrats, removing their nests, and cleaning up landscaping and other potential harborage areas. Also, exclusion to potential entry points may be necessary.
Southwest Pest Solutions also provides control for other rodents including mice, kangaroo rats, gophers, and moles.
