A pack rat took up residence in my stove behind the oven in some insulation. (I don't use it much in the summer.) I have tried traps with all kinds of bait (even its favorite which was apple pieces), a glue trap (that took off half of its tail) with no success. I even tried turning on the oven but it got out and ran into my pantry and came back during the night. So I disconnected the stove and hauled it outside and turned the garden hose on it (it is just a basic stove with no electical stuff) and left it outside overnight. I just looked and the rat is still there. I can see it through a small hole in the back of the stove. I have been banging on that area with a hammer and it still won't leave. It is actually kinda funny but does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of a pita pack rat?
