At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your University Park 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 University 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. 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 University Park, 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. The northern end of our range is Deltona and Kissimmee makes up the southern end.

  • Shooting Rats

Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution. We provide the most extensive service and the best warranty plan in the industry.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.

Trapping 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: Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night. Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. This means there are no more rats to feed on it because they are dead. In most instances, rats are very wary. Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
