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

In the third week they begin to take solid food. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.

Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. You don't want to over-pay of course.

Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. Lives up to one year. Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.
