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

The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control.
As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.
Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce.
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.
In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks.
Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present.
Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.
While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
These rats are primarily active at night.
You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
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.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
How To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic - Rats are one of the most problematic pest animals to deal with for those who have attic spaces, as they can squeeze through holes that are around the size of a quarter, while they are also prodigious breeders.
Some of the more important non-chemical methods are:
They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments.
At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.
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.
