We operate in central Florida, including the towns of Lake Mary, Longwood, Winter Park, College Park, Apopka, Maitland, Windermere, and the whole greater Orlando area.

There truly is a big difference amongst different companies. Not all companies are the same. Many of the rat removal companies in Orlando are simply standard big-name pest control companies. These companies only want to sign you up for a quarterly or monthly contract that never expires. That’s how they make money, by never solving your problem. They send out an employee every now and then to carelessly sprinkle some poison packets in your attic or set poison stations around the house. This does not solve anything. It merely kills a percentage of the rats, some of which will certainly die in your attic or walls, and decay, causing an odor problem. New rats will always replace the old ones, and it’s a never ending cycle. Do not hire an Orlando pest control company to take care of rat problems. You want to hire a rat trapping and exclusion company for the best possible Orlando rodent control. Ours is the absolute best. We solve your problem permanently. We solve the root of the problem, by finding all the openings that rats use to enter your home and attic. We seal these openings shut with steel, and make the house 100% rat-proof. We trap and remove all of the remaining rats inside, and you will never have a rat problem again.
The ingenuity of rats may surprise many home owners. These rodents do not need an obvious hole to enter the home. Unguarded drain pipes, vents, unused chimneys, and broken windows are all potential access points for a rat. Before you start an intense investigation of your home, place protective caps and grates over openings that need to remain open for a purpose. Damaged windows or vents should be repaired. It’s often easy to determine where a rat is entering the building. Rats are notoriously greasy and will leave slick discolorations around any area being used for entry. Not only will grease marks be present, marks from chewing will also be a good indication. Another sign of rat activity is the presence of feces and urine. Rats use this type of marking system for scent identification. If you’ve discovered any of the aforementioned problems, it’s likely that you’ve located where the rats are getting in. Finding where they are entering the home is a big first step to solving the rat issue. Once discovered this area can be blocked off. Any rats can then be trapped and removed without the worry of more rodents moving in.
