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.
We service Orange and Piedmont, 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.

Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases.
With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact.
Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges.
Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored.
Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time.
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.
Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.
Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations.
Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs.
The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
For further information see Norway Rats.
You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause.
It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.
Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations.
Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
Fur is smooth.
Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps.
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.
Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available.
Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).
If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends.
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
