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 Ocoee 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.

Humane Rat Control in Ocoee Florida
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.
Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home.
Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.
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.
Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem.
They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
Breeding seasons vary in different areas.
Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.
Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.
Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.
If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days.
Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.
Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open.
Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.
The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat.
If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.

Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.
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.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage.
