At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Buena Vista area building for good. With our vast knowledge of rat behavior and building construction, we will inspect every inch of your house or building – from top to bottom – and find every possible entry point. Once we have permanently sealed up all the holes, typically with heavy steel mesh or metal plating that rats can’t chew through, then we can start the Buena Vista rodent trapping process.

The best rat trap: Believe it or not, the tried-and-true, low-tech mouse trap (snap trap) – a simple piece of wood with a spring-loaded bar – is the most effective and humane way to kill a rat. Snap traps kill rats instantly, they are inexpensive and reusable, and they can fit in small spaces. Do not worry about the bait – you can use anything from peanut butter to fruit to – yes, cheese.

We service Orange and Buena Vista, including the towns of Apopka, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Longwood, Heathrow, Lake Mary, Oviedo, Fern Park, Maitland, Lockhart, Winter Park, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Pine Hills, Doctor Phillips, Pine Castle, Belle Isle, the Conway area, and College Park.

What Do Rats Eat?

If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. You might find holes in walls and wood. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.

If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested. Females can breed year-round. They usually don't leave the attic for very long. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. These rats are primarily active at night.

Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Rat droppings are three times as large as mouse droppings. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain.
