There are two types of rodent that you might find yourself confronting, and mice are one of them. Mice are not fussy about what they eat. This means that if you leave food around, and a mouse discovers it, chances are you will pretty soon have a lot more of them. Like most pests, mice are more likely to settle down when they find a good food supply.
In Australia, we have native mice. The native hopping mouse, in particular, is a protected species. It’s important to understand which type of mouse you have, because you don’t want to kill the wrong one! You will be less likely to have hopping mice in an urban area: They tend to live natural environments and avoid people. But if you’re in a bushland area like the Adelaide Hills, you might find that they, too, are opportunistic when it comes to food. They’re fascinating creatures; you can read more about them here.
But, hopping mice look similar to pest mice.
Our Pest Control Process
Residential & domestic pest control identification
You’ll be prone to termites if you have water pooling or leaking around your house. They need a damp, humid environment.
Like most animals, rodents become a problem when you’ve given them a source of food. They’re simply after something to eat.
Not many people like cockroaches. This might be because cockroaches can infest even the cleanest of houses.
If you have common black house spiders, there is a good chance you will soon have white-tail spiders too.
For really effective ant control, we recommend a program of inspections to monitor and bait further instances.
Fleas are becoming less common in households as flea control for cats and dogs is simple and effective.
Birds are typically an annoyance rather than a danger to you or your property. We will remove them.
Bees can form swarms. If you annoy them or hurt them, they will sting you. We will remove them.
But flies are not just annoying. They also carry disease. They will infect your food with disease picked up elsewhere.
