So with all the rain we got I discovered mushrooms were growing in my garden shed. Last week on a sunny day I decided to clean out the shed. In one of the cabinets I discovered a rat's nest!!! The creature had taken only aspen leaves and dried mushrooms (one variety only) and packed them into the upper cabinet. There was a nest of insulation material in the middle. Not knowing if there were babies in the nest, had no idea how to tackle it. Finally got my courage up and removed the entire contents of the shed. There were no youngsters in the nest, so I got a big stick and removed all the leaves and mushrooms. I decided to leave everything outside whilst I figured out how to keep the critter from returning. That evening I checked and it was in there! It STARED at me and I screamed and ran Next morning there were more mushrooms and aspen leaves. I cleared them out and put screening and steel wool where I thought it was coming in. It would be impossible to completely seal up the shed, it's over 60 years old. Success or so I thought. Everything got put back in nice and organized. Last night I checked and it's baaaaaaaaaaaaaack. :mad2: I think it's a pack rat. How do I get rid of it for good in as humane way as possible that doesn't involve trapping/relocating? Smoke bombs?
