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

A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch.

Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. Read my comprehensive guide to rats in the attic. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever.

The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations.
