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.

We service Orange and Plymouth, 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. The northern end of our range is Deltona and Kissimmee makes up the southern end.

Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.

Only construction grade materials are used. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.

For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. Lives up to one year.
