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

Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves.

Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
