Cumberland County, Fayetteville Rat Control Situation:
Found about 3 or 4 of these in my greenhouse. Poop is about 3/4 of an inch long. Some of the others had a white piece of stuff attached to the end but it disintegrated when I tried to move it. I had to wet this a little so you could see it cause it had mold growing on it. Also it did not appear to be completely round. I think it was ever so slightly oval. I've had a rat issue around my home before when I used to have a rabbit, probably the same type that lives underground? Is it true that rats will not stay in places that are open? I was thinking I should leave the greenhouse door open. It's not glass, it's screen with a tin roof. (I staple plastic up in the winter). I live in NE Florida. Thanks in advance for your input. Much appreciated.
Hi David, I have had Exterminators out to my house and they claimed to have closed up any openings in my attic however I am still hearing the noises in my attic. There has also been a raccoon and possums that sit on the fence at night and drive my dogs crazy. I don't think they could be in the attic at night. When the exterminator was here they caught 2 rats in the attic and one outside. I believe there is another one caught outside on the side of the house. I want to know what I can do or how much you charge to take care of the rat problem I am having. I live in La Verne. I would appreciate any help you could give me. I have been dealing with this for a long time.

What Is The Fastest Way To Get Rid Of Rats?
Rats are not animals anyone should have in their homes. These rodents can wreak havoc on your beautiful home when allowed to breed and multiply. If you are lucky enough to realize you have a rat problem quickly, the best thing you can do is to look for the fastest way to get rid of them before they begin to increase in number to something beyond what you can contain.
When it comes to the fastest way to get rid of rats, snap traps are considered one of the fastest. This might seem like a very old method of getting rid of rats, but the fact is that it still works better than many of the newly designed rat removal methods out there.
A snap trap is a trap with a wooden platform and a spring-loaded bar that snaps immediately a rat comes in contact with the bait that was placed on it. In the process of trying to nibble or steal the bait from the trap, it will get caught by the neck and killed immediately.
One of the major reasons why snap traps are considered the fastest way to get rid of rat is that when it traps a rat, it can be reused immediately. Provided you have a good bait in place that can help you to attract rats to the snap trap, you will also be able to trap rats and remove them from your home without wasting too much time.
Also, snap traps are humane, affordable, and easy to use.
