Rat Removal Experts
- Rat Exclusion
- Rodent Proofing
- Rat Extermination
Our approach to getting rid of rats is much different than the approach of a pest control company. We do not use poisons, glue traps or bait blocks. Contrary to what most pest control technicians may say, rats do not leave the home for water and die outside. Even if this were the case, this can cause a chain reaction if a cat, dog or bird of prey eats this poisoned rat. We use rat traps to remove rats from attics, quickly and safely. Call us today with any questions regarding rat control services.There are two different, common, species of rat in the Melbourne Florida area, luckily rat removal is the same. The Roof Rat, and the Norwegian Rat (or Norway Rat). The roof rat, is by far the most common rat in attics that we encounter. I would guess that about 80% of our wildlife control calls are for rats, and every time people always ask “why me”? While there are things you can do to lower your odds of attracting rats, a lot of it is just luck. Fortunately we are very good at rat removal in Melbourne Florida. A full grown, 18 inch rat only needs a nickel size hole to get its entire body through. They can tread water for 3 days, and hold their breath underwater for over 3 minutes. Rats are truly amazing, and adaptable creatures, but we don’t want them in our homes! We get great pride in removing rats from your attics and homes!

Any person owning property may take nuisance wildlife that causes (or is about to cause) property damage,presents a threat to public safety, or causes an annoyance within, under or upon a building on their property or they may authorize another person to take nuisance wildlife on their behalf. Persons responsible for government owned property are considered “property owners”. Wildlife trappers and property owners are responsible for complying with the many laws that protect wildlife. Before removing wildlife, please seek assistance in understanding these laws and your alternative options for resolving the conflict. (6)
Wildlife conflicts may result in the perception that all wildlife is a nuisance without any recognition of beneficial values. Oftentimes, an unpleasant experience will cause such a perception, particularly among those who have few encounters with wildlife.
Most conflicts with wildlife can be resolved by making simple changes such as removing food attractants. Understanding wildlife behavior and their habits can help you appreciate and coexist with wildlife while reducing negative impacts.
Remember that removing one animal may serve to open up territory for others to move in. Consider making simple accommodations to avoid wildlife conflicts so you can relax and enjoy the wildlife in your backyard. (7)
Animal damage to attic insulation from raccoons trailing can be bad along with the smell from their feces and droppings. Damage from animals in the attic is very costly to repair. After we catch the animals we seal up for complete removal services. Extermination for animals is not better than animal trapping for a number of reasons, mainly because of the smell from dead rats. Rats smell when they die, hence why we use traps and seal the rodent entry points.
