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 Fullers 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 Fullers Florida
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order.
Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges.
See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips.
Roof rats are highly adaptable.
Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees.
Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.
Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris.
In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats.
At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.
Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats.
In the third week they begin to take solid food.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside.
This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two.
Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void.
Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective.
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:
