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

We service Orange and University Park, including the towns of Apopka, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Longwood, Heathrow, Lake Mary, Oviedo, Fern Park, Maitland, Lockhart, Winter Park, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Pine Hills, Doctor Phillips, Pine Castle, Belle Isle, the Conway area, and College Park.
