At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your South Lake Conway Villa 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 South Lake Conway Villa 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 South Lake Conway Villa, 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.

What are Rats?

  • Do rats leave the attic during the day?

  • Do rats have bones? How can they fit in such small holes?

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. 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.

For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality. No, they sleep in the attic all day.

The Invasion Of Roof Rats

  • Will a rat chew through the ceiling?

When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. Tracking powders can be placed in voids behind walls, near points of entry, and in well-defined trails. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two.
