Trapping rats takes a high level of skill, suburban rats, like the ones you’ll find in your Palm Bay, Florida home, are highly adept and have learned to be very smart to avoid humans so they can stay in the comfort of your home. Our staff at 24/7 Wildlife Control is well trained and knows how to locate the offending rats, their passage ways, their scent trails, their nests, and how to properly bait and trap rats.
Snap traps, the kind you find at your local hardware store are good for one or two rats, but after the first few catches the other rats in the colony learn to avoid your bait and traps, leaving you with still more rats and no solution to your rodent infestation problem. The key to successful rodent and rat trapping in Palm Bay FL is minimizing the scent of humans on the traps and knowing where to put them on the rodent scent trail, a skill that all members of the 24/7 Wildlife Removal staff are taught and exercises frequently because rodents are a common year-round problem in Palm Bay Florida.
Not only are Palm Bay rodents a nuisance, they can also be a hazard to your home. They will gain access to the smallest spaces, they breed frequently and are known to have litters of rat pups of up to two-dozen at one time every few weeks, and will cause damage to your home. Rats will chew on the insulation in your attic to make the nest, rats will defecate and urinate on every surface of your attic, they will chew on our electrical wires, your home security wires, your air conditioning ductwork, your water piping, and will even chew on your walls to create more or larger access points to your attic. All of this can potentially create dangerous problems to your home and property. Rats carry diseases, as do their favorite food, insects, and those diseases are left behind in their droppings in your attic and on your insulation.
