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.

  • What can rats chew through?

It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.

Check Your Attic!

  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. They need not be baited. Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.

  • How to Stop Roof Rat Damage

Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps. We service 99% of the USA. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects.
