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.

Successful long-term rat control is not simple. Fur is smooth. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Roof rats are highly adaptable. A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.

The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. However, a few differences must be taken into account. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful.
