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.

Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. 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 have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white. The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat. However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows. It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.

Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. 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. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) .

For more detailed information, see Rodent-proof Construction and Exclusion Methods. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. 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.
