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 Plymouth, 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.

Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. You don't want to over-pay of course. Rat droppings are three times as large as mouse droppings.

Females can breed year-round. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. They need not be baited. 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. Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. Read this article about how are rats getting in for more info.

Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs. Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. Again, if you are having trouble doing it yourself, you can give a professional a call off of my directory of expert Rat Removal Companies, and see what they have to say, or schedule a service appointment to get the problem correctly and permanently taken care of. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Touch is an important sense in rats. It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure.
