At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Maitland 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 Maitland 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.

Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control.

  • What Are Rats?

Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.

Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur. Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points.
