At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Plymouth 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 Plymouth 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 Orange and Plymouth, including the towns of Apopka, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Longwood, Heathrow, Lake Mary, Oviedo, Fern Park, Maitland, Lockhart, Winter Park, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Pine Hills, Doctor Phillips, Pine Castle, Belle Isle, the Conway area, and College Park.

Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation. 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. Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof. They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate.

Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces.

Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
