I caught this in my hunting trailer. It's bigger than a mouse or rat but had a face like a mouse.

What is it and how do I keep more of of my trailer?

Thanks.

All food out of the trailer when you leave. Poison inside. Throw a box of mothballs under it. Close up any openings underneath with the expanding foam.

Packrats, at least that means there are no snakes in there...

Find their den, you will find small things that have come out missing... SD Cards, stuff like that

I killed one of those in my trailer. I thought it was a rat but the tail was short. I know that it has somehow has taken two large sticky traps and one mouse trap somewhere in my trailer. They have eaten my plastic plumbing. I am about to try poison or a neutron bomb.

I don't know what their official name is, but we always called them packrats.

Question; In the barn their is an old truck, under the hood there is a nest and there are cactus pads around it.

So do regular rats eat cactus pads also or only packrats confused2

Get the MArble bait/poison from Tractor Supply, comes in a Green and Black bag. This stuff works great in our barn/cabin we have, in the summer I put it all around the 4 wheelers too along with Moth Balls.

I can't find a Marble bait / poison on Tractor Supply website or in Google search.

It sounds good. Is that the correct spelling?
