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

They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats.

They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. 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. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. 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. You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding.

The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.
