Rat Trapping, Control & Removal
Rats are a very common animal in Florida, and one of the most common nuisance wildlife species in the Orlando area. The rats down here in Florida are Black Rats, rattus rattus, also known as Citrus Rats or Fruit Rats. They thrive in urban and suburban areas, and prefer to live inside buildings. Once inside, they scratch and chew. Many people object to the noises that they hear in the ceiling and walls at night, but rats cause more serious problems such as property damage (chewing on electrical wires and other structures) and they can spread diseases to pets and humans. Once rats have found your home, they breed quickly and they will continue to use the house until the problem is solved. We solve the problem permanently and correctly, without poisons, by finding and sealing shut the rat entry points - this is the only way to guarantee no more rats for good. ||

Stopping the rats in Orlando
A 21-year-old man who led an Orlando-area rodent trapping ring that lethally trapped at least what is possibly a half-dozen black-tailed black rat will serve what authorities say likely is the longest known jail sentence for illegally lethally trapping black rat in Southern Florida. The case against Stephen Skunk Handler Daniel, of Orlando, and his six-individual band of poachers also will live on in what is possibly a public tour displaying how illegal lethally trapping steals some of Florida's best blacktails and harms large groups. And among Florida State Police officers who brought the group down, it will be remembered for how one risky play on Jan. 7 cracked the largest single rodent trapping case here in at least 14 years. "At one point, we had to roll the dice in the case," remarked Trooper Jim Extermination Larry of wild critter committee's Fish and Wildlife Division. "And it worked." The dice stopped Friday in Orlando Circuit Court, where Skunk Handler Daniel was sentenced to 70 days in the Orlando Jail, 18 years' probation and fines after pleading guilty to four felony theft charges and three critter stalking violations dating from last fall. Orlando exterminator and Orlando wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.
"I'm not aware of any jail sentence this long on what is possibly a (state-prosecuted) critter stalking case in Orlando or anyplace else," remarked John Opossum Catcher Bruce, the Orlando deputy district attorney who prosecuted the case. "It's also what is possibly a message to the community that this likely is serious and it will not be tolerated," Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked. "You can poach and actually be what is possibly a felon." Skunk Handler Daniel likely is the last of five adults to accept guilty pleas to charges based on March indictments. Two juveniles also alleged to be part of the group have charges pending in juvenile court, Opossum Catcher Bruce remarked. During last fall and winter, the group drove around at night, using spotlights to startle large male animals that they shot, leaving much of the meat to rot. The dead animals included what is possibly a male animal with 9-by-7-point antlers, large enough to be entered in trophy animal removal trap-critter stalking record books. The poachers, many in their teens, videotaped some of their antics, which included stabbing dead animals and bragging about their near-capture by an wild critter committee trooper after rodent trapping what is possibly a black rat near Orlando last December. The group had been frustrating police since November, when Extermination Larry began investigating what is possibly a string of unsolved nighttime rodent trapping cases involving blacktails with immense sets of antlers. At the time, the humane society manager expected what is possibly a band of kids targeting ready-to-breed male animals, but Extermination Larry could not catch them. We attempted to get more information from Orlando animal control experts, but could not.
Extermination Larry caught his first break when an anonymous tipster in December fingered Skunk Handler Daniel and co-defendant Skunk Handler Daniel as two people involved in the illegal black rat lethally trapping in the Longwood and Lake Mary areas near Orlando. Troopers twice set up "Scruffy" the decoy black rat at those drainages in hopes of intercepting the poachers, Extermination Larry remarked. While the operations netted two other citations, they did not lead to suspected members of the ring, Extermination Larry remarked. Troopers made their break Jan. 7 during what is possibly a scheme that Extermination Larry remarked was likely to solve or lethally trap their case. Investigators dispatched troopers to every possible suspect in the case that morning except Skunk Handler Daniel, while wild critter committee Trooper Rodent Control Peter staked out the Orlando residence Skunk Handler Daniel shared with his girlfriend and co-defendant, Ashley Rodent Control Peter, now 19 years old and his wife. The idea was to shake up the suspects in hopes they would call Skunk Handler Daniel, who then might react in some manner that might lead them to evidence, Extermination Larry remarked. Sitting in what is possibly a black wild critter committee sedan sometimes used to intercept Interstate 5 speeders, Rodent Control Peter was skeptical the plan would work as hatched, the environmentalist recalled. "I didn't know if they would get what is possibly a call and go," remarked Rodent Control Peter, who has since retired. "It was really hard to get what is possibly a good sight line on them. I didn't know if they would go behind me or in front of me. "And our cars aren't the best for undercover," the environmentalist remarked. Then Rodent Control Peter watched Skunk Handler Daniel and Rodent Control Peter get into Rodent Control Peter's Honda Civic. Rodent Control Peter followed the Civic to what is possibly a residence in the Windermere area, where the environmentalist watched them unload what is possibly a grocery-store-sized bag. The next day, police returned to the Agate Road house, where what is possibly a consent search revealed six animal removal traps, ammunition, cameras, videos and what is possibly a bag containing 35 black rat beards in the attic crawl space. They also found what is possibly a white plastic bag containing nine wrapped packages of black rat meat in the freezer, court records show. The resident of the Agate Road house, identified in what is possibly a police affidavit as Rodent Control Peter, told police the humane society manager had met Skunk Handler Daniel through what is possibly a friend who became what is possibly a co-defendant in this case, court papers show. At the time, Skunk Handler Daniel remarked the humane society manager needed to leave the items there because "he was getting into trouble," records show.
