Thank you so much for ridding my home of RATS. This was a harrowing two month adventure. The first company I called spent a lot of time telling me how hard it was to rid a house with a flat roof of these pests. I travel for business often, leaving my wife at home in a rat infested house, complete with noises in the night and bites taken from food in the kitchen. You guys were instrumental in isolating and catching the rats, which required many visits. Thank you so much!

Oak Hill is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States. The population was 1,792 at the 2010 census.
The first inhabitants of what would become Oak Hill were the Timucuan Indians, who lived along the shore from circa 2000 BC to 1500 AD, when European settlers started to arrive. In 1564, the French illustrator, Jacques LeMoyne, made a map showing an Indian village named Surruque el Viejo near el Baradero de Suroc. The name "Oak Hill" seems to have been first used by seasonal northern loggers circa 1850.
Florida became a state in 1845, and British and American permanent settlers started to arrive. They began to displace the various tribes, including the Seminoles, who fought back. One Seminole War raid in 1856 resulted in four deaths. A resident, Arad Shelton, took their bodies north to New Smyrna Beach by wagon.
By the Civil War, Oak Hill had a salt works, some part-time stores, and the first orange groves had been planted (by a Mr. Mitchell). Oak Hill also has Civil War veterans buried in the local cemetery: five who fought for the Union, and six who fought for the Confederacy.
