Eliminating a rat infestation is the most difficult work Wildlife Patrol performs. Do not be fooled by companies or products that sell simple cures.  The only true solution comes from scouring a structure to find how the rats entered, sealing these areas as well as any other vulnerable spots, and trapping whatever rats were sealed in at the time of repairs.

Wildlife Patrol solves rat infestations permanently through a 4 step process.

1). Inspection  Every job is unique and directly dependent on the structure of the infested building.  Rats squeeze through any gap wider than 1/2 inch; and their climbing ability allows them to explore virtually every square inch of a structure from the foundation to the roof peak in order to find entry.   Wildlife Patrol scours the building for entry points and evaluates the home and attic to find the safest and most effective location to trap.  Any entry point that is missed during the inspection can cause the work to fail.

2). Trapping  Rats respond poorly to traps - unless the trap is properly positioned.  Rats are cautious by nature and avoid new objects.  They travel established routes over and over again that they have learned are safe.  A trap, even with the most delicious bait, will often fail if it is not set on a route run by the rats.  Wildlife Patrol works hard to ensure any rat sealed inside a building after repairs are complete by a) exploring attic as throroughly as possible to find the best locations to set traps and b) using a great number of traps (typically 12-20 for a normal size attic).  Wildlife Patrol maintains the traps over the course of treatment; this includes clearing out catches, resetting traps, and rebaiting traps.  Trapping continues until trap activity ceases and customoer no longer hears animal noises.

3). Repairs  Closing all the entry points is essential to solve the problem and reinforcing vulnerable areas is the key to rat proofing a home.  The areas needing repairs are determined during the inspection.   Wildlife Patrol performs repairs to last permantly and guarantees every site we work on for 1 year.  The repairs and trap setup are performed at the same time.  Once all entry points are sealed, some rats are sealed outside and some rats are sealed inside.  Our extensive trapping prevents rats from dying from dehydration in locations where they'd never be found.  All of the rats sealed inside will find our traps and be removed.

4). Decontamination  After the infestation has been resolved, Wildlife Patrol offers decontamination services to eliminate the animal mess.  Decontamination involves a) physically removing as much of the rat feces as possible using a power vaccuum and b) applying Bioshield through an atomizing sprayer to break down rodent urine and oils.

In the United States, the most common specie of rat is the norway rat; but in Florida the most common is the black rat (also known as the fruit or roof rat).  The black rat is a lean body rat with a long tail and long fingers - these characteristics allow it be a great climber.

Black rats are an extremely common animal in Florida... but because they travel at night up high along trees and electrical wires, they are rarely seen.

Rat poison is usually advertised to make the rat thirsty so that it will seek water and die outside.  Our experience indicates that rats will die from poison just as often inside the attic and walls (where they may not be able to found) as they die outside.  Use poison cautiously!

By Chinese Zodiac: People born in the Year of the Rat (..1984, 1996...) are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful.

Rat infestations are caused by faults of a building.  People's habits only play a small part in causing the problem.  Keeping an uncluttered landscape, cutting tree branches away from roof, picking up fallen citrus fruit, and keeping pet food well sealed are some ways a homeowner can keep their property less attractive to rats.
