Plymouth Rat Removal – Orange County, FL Rodent Pros
Voted Best Rat Removal Companies in Plymouth
At Orange County, FL Rodent Pros, we know how to get rids of rats in your Plymouth 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 Plymouth 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 traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat.
They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.
They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.
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.
Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.
In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians.
Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter.
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.
We provide the most extensive service and the best warranty plan in the industry.
Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees.
A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time.
The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult.
Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed.
The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.
