At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Riverside Acres 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 Riverside Acres 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.

We service Orange and Riverside Acres, 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. The northern end of our range is Deltona and Kissimmee makes up the southern end.

If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation.

Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. Got a rat problem?

  • What Do Rats Eat?

They need not be baited. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.
