Backyard Gardener: How to tell if you have woodrats

Woodrats (Neotoma spp.) are common across the deserts and highlands of Arizona. They have large ears and eyes with a furry tail and white underbelly (upper left, inaturalist.ca). Their nests are made up of live and dead vegetation and usually look like a simple pile of sticks (lower left, upper right, Jeff Schalau, University of Arizona). Large snap traps can be set to humanely manage wood rats (lower right, Jeff Schalau, University of Arizona). (Jeff Schalau/Courtesy)
