Noise in the attic?
Customer hears animal scratching sound in attic, for rats in the attic, the noise is heard at night. The homeowner in most cases has heard the noises for a few nights to a few weeks and
calls us when they are certain that the noises they hear are not normal house sounds and that the noises are not outside up on the roof, they call Orlando Rat experts at 407-810-1381.
Most jobs begin with the customer hearing the animals in the walls or ceiling. A smaller percentage of Florida rat control work begins when the customer sees the rat evidence (chewing, droppings, feces) or the rat itself inside the home proper.
Home Inspection, Trap Setup, Rodent Proofing
Orlando rat control experts come out to the property and look over the rooftop, eave, crawlspace, and attic to confirm the animal in the attic is rat (as opposed to raccoon, squirrel, opossum in the attic) and more importantly, to find
exactly where the Orlando rats are getting into the home.
On this first visit, our Orlando exterminator set traps for the rats and in most cases completely seal up the home. Most jobs, all of the traps are set in the attic. The attic is where the heart of the rat problems in Orlando, FL are.
Clearing out rat catches, rebaiting, re-evaluating
Orlando rat trappers return around the 4th to 6th day (the timing is up to the customer) to clear out the trapper rats. At this point for most homes, ALL rats have been caught and the noises in the attic have ceased.
The job could be closed at this point, but usually we keep trapping to make sure there are no remaining rodents in the attic.
Cleaning Out The Attic
We make our 2nd return trip about 7 to 10 days after the 1st return trip. During this period, there should be no animal sounds in the house and when we check the traps, the rat traps should all still be exactly how they were left - still in
the set position.
The attic decontamination is usually performed on this visit, now that rats have been completely eliminated and the home fully rodent-proofed.
