Voted Best Rat Removal Companies in Summerport Beach
At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Summerport Beach 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 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
For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed.
They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
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.
Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.
Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity.
Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available.
You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
We service 99% of the USA.
These rats are primarily active at night.
Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines.
The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down.
They usually don't leave the attic for very long.
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
Fur is smooth.
Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
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.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present.
If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends.
This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations.
The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever.
