I'll tell you what you DONT want to do with a pack rat. Tell your 12 yr old son to get his pellet gun and shoot it while you hold the flashlight.
He shoots the rat and it jumps and flips and then runs across the garage floor leaving a trail of blood behind him and then jumps up into my wifes XC90. Two hours of searching on, in, under, under the hood, everywhere we could think we lost his blood trail on the passenger side right behind the right front fender.
I was at a loss for where he could have gone untill he started to smell, then it was fairly easy to figure out where his death bed was. I had to pull the weather stripping that runs on top of the rocker panel beneath the doors and then I had to pop all the little clips that hold the plastic panel on and pull it nearly off the car to extract his rotten little body.
We cleaned everything with bleach and hot water and I hoped that would be the end of it, no such luck.
It has been two weeks and that car still stinks. Any tips on odor removal???
