I have experienced thousands (literally) of dollars of damage as a result of packrats.
Good Luck and keep us posted

Sold the trailer 10 years latter, still no problems! GOOD LUCK

dork: when you say fumigation, what exactly are you going to have done? If a pest control person simply puts out poison bait, then the packrats could die inside the walls of your trailer...obviously not a good thing. Make sure know exactly what the pest control company is going to do to insure there are no more nasty critters in your trailer. Good Luck!! And keep us posted.

Hi
The trailer has been checked out and apparently the pack rats are long gone but the ants are still very much in the present.
The pest guy is going to take it to his yard and give the trailer a proper going over for beasties, fumigate the ants for us and give us a certificate so that we have no problems at the dock
So hopefully thats another hurdle covered!

Did it arrive safely? I really empathized with your situation and the frustration at being so far away. I hope the remainder of the trip was without incident.
