At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your University Park 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 University Park rodent trapping process.

what do rats like

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.

The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. 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 can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.

  • What can rats climb?

At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Use enough traps to eliminate the rodents quickly.

Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.
