I actually got a natural albino.

Customer Rat Email: Hi, I left a message on your work phone also. Would you please be able to come out to my home in West Orlando for a consultation? I think that there are mice or rats in the crawl space under the kitchen off the basement. I can smell the foul odor coming up through a floor cupboard, and saw signs of them in the crawlspace below, accessed through a door/panel in the basement. I'm not sure where they are coming in, as I couldn't find a hole anywhere outside on the perimeter. The best time for me would be Tuesday of this next week, preferably in the afternoon if possible. E-mailing to confirm times, etc. would be easier for me as I work 10 hr. shifts, including the weekend. Would it be possible to organize for an estimate on rodent exclusion work for my attic? In late January of this year after hearing noises in the attic, I had a local Pest Control firm come and place traps in the attic. They ended up trapping three rats over two weeks. At that time, they also inspected the attic and recommended getting rodent exclusion work done. I've also maintained a trap in the attic, checking it sporadically and catching one additional rat during the winter. Thank you in advance, Richard

My Answer: I can certainly solve your rat problem for you. I'll call tomorrow to set up a time that works for you.

There are three kinds of rodents commonly found inside buildings (in the attics, walls, and even inside the living space). They are the Roof Rat (Rattus rattus), which is also called the Black Rat, then there's the Norway Rat (Rattus norvegicus), also known as the Brown Rat, and the House Mouse (Mus musculus). Roof Rats are more common in the south, such as Florida, where I work. The above photo is of a Roof Rat. They are very common inside attics. The Norway Rat is more common in the northern section of the United States. The Norways are more commonly found underground, in subways and sewers and such. The House Mouse is found everywhere, but seems more common in the north. All of these rodents thrive in urban areas and love to live in human buildings and houses. They use human garbage (and pantries) as sources of food. All of these rodents are carriers of several diseases that can infect humans and pets. They contaminate homes and attics. The only way to permanently solve a rat problem is to find out how the rodents are gaining access to the inside of the building, and fix those openings. Then the remaining rats inside have to be trapped and removed. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Rats page.
