At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Piedmont 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 Piedmont 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 Piedmont, 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.

Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.

Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. Look for fresh droppings. Then the rats should be trapped and removed. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night.

Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. 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. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
