It's been living in the hood of her van and they've been trying to capture for about 2 weeks now. Nothing has worked. Any ideas on how to capture it?
Hey, I think it's a PACK RAT!!! No kidding! It's really known as a bushy-tailed woodrat, but it where we got the term "pack rat" from.
Check these pictures out:
Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
Or maybe it's an Eastern Woodrat
Or perhaps it's a White-throated Woodrat?

I think they might have hitched a ride from KANSAS (where our home was made) I really really hope not; but it is kind of making sense. We have our share of field mice; but the scurrying in the walls and roof is more than usual! Something was getting either in the walls or between the outside of the house and vinyl siding! Talk about creeps!
I never thought of making sure of nests in the ceiling before they put the home on the foundation! The ceiling is not blown the fiberglass ; but rather fluffy loose blown in insulation..
.making more of a chance they would nest.
