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 Tropicana Mobile Home 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.

Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem.
Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest.
High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats.
A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires.
The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white.
The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows.
Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps.
They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate.
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.
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.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.
ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS.
Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger.
Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.
Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats.
