At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Wewahotee 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 Wewahotee rodent trapping process.

Females can breed year-round. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. For further information see Norway Rats. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage).

In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. In the third week they begin to take solid food. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it.

Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.
