Christmas Rat Removal – Orange County, FL Rodent Pros
Voted Best Rat Removal Companies in Christmas
At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Christmas 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 Christmas 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 Christmas Florida
Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind.
For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most.
Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
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 most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus).
All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits.
They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly.
These rats are primarily active at night.
Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats.
Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.
Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats.
Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry.
The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.
Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
