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 Vineland 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 Vineland Florida
Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult.
Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards.
Droppings - you might find these in places like cupboards, cabinets and other areas around the home where rats like to hide
Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations.
These rats are primarily active at night.
They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
Fur is smooth.
Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area.
We service 99% of the USA.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly.
Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective.
They need not be baited.
If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful.
Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways.
The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States.
Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
