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. The northern end of our range is Deltona and Kissimmee makes up the southern end.

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Rat droppings are three times as large as mouse droppings. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Only construction grade materials are used. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA.

The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.
