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

Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception.

Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities).

In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. 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. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Then they return to the attic. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife.
