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 Taft 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 Taft, 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. The northern end of our range is Deltona and Kissimmee makes up the southern end.

Do rats make good pets?


what do rats like

  • Do dogs keep rats away?

  • What are the types of rat snap traps?

  • Do rats destroy insulation in an attic?

In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. Fur is smooth. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.

Rat Infestation

  • Do rats have bones? How can they fit in such small holes?

  • What animals do rats kill?

  • Rat Repellents

These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. Monitor the situation.

Types of Rats

  • Do rats dig holes? Do they burrow under houses? How deep?

  • Rat Infestation

  • Rat Infestation

They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation.
