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.

No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food.

Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits.

All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space.
