What I failed to mention yesterday is that pack rats have an IQ some where above Einstein. This morning the smell is far worse and they evaded the live trap and the cracker with peanut butter placed in the trap. They have finished off my flowers along with the buds that won't bloom now. Time to get serious, I am not happy that they like to toy with me. Persistence and perseverance will trump a high IQ any day. I have plenty of snap traps so it the rat returns tonight it will be like walking through a mine field to get to the last vestige of my flowers. I guess I should be content that I was able to enjoy them for a short while anyway.
