Voted Best Rat Removal Companies in Wewahotee
At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Wewahotee 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 Wewahotee 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.

Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.
Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry.
Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.
Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.

When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most.
