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

As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. 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. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.

You don't want to over-pay of course. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. It is also capable of transmitting a number of diseases to domestic animals and is suspected in the transference of ectoparasites from one place to another.

They usually don't leave the attic for very long. Use enough traps to eliminate the rodents quickly. Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water.
