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 Summerport Beach 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.

Humane Rat Control in Summerport Beach Florida
Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem.
The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations.
It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.
The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows.
Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves.
For professional rat control services from the rat control officers at rat removal experts, please contact your local rat removal experts office by calling.
Also, be careful when setting snap traps.
Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.
Some of the more important non-chemical methods are:
Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces.
They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement.
They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die.
Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed.
Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter.
Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical.
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.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food.
No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control.
Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats.
Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.
In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species.

Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset.
