At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Palmer Trailer Park 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 Palmer Trailer Park 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 99% of the USA. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night. 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. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits.

What Do Rats Eat?

  • Can rats swim? Do they drown?

In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Then the rats should be trapped and removed. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two.

Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
