Rodents 

 

About Rodents

Rodents include varieties of mice and rats. Of the two different types of rodent, there is one key behaviour to set them apart. Rats will always follow the same pathway, typically with one side protected by something like a fence; while mice will just run anywhere.

 

While this is a very simplistic differentiation, it’s an important one in terms of pest control. What it means is that you can predict where the rats will go, so baiting them is quite a simple matter. It also means that you know that the appearance of rats on your property will be cyclic. Rats leave a scent trail, so somewhere down the track, another rat will find it and pick it up. You can learn more about rats here.

 

Mice, however, are less simple to attract. They aren’t as paranoid as rats, and will tend to take baits one after the other, even when there are a lot of them in the same area. It’s important to know the difference between introduced mice and native Australian hopping mice, which are a protected species. You can learn more about mice here.

The things that rats and mice have in common are that they are not fussy eaters. They will make themselves comfortable just about anywhere. The reason why they’re a problem is because they carry diseases, insects like ticks and fleas, and their droppings can cause food poisoning if they fall into your foodstuffs.

 

Rodents are attracted to food and scraps

There are some simple things that you can do to protect your home from rodents. The simplest is to make sure that there are no cracks or entrances that they could get into. And then to restrict their sources of food.

 

Like most animals, rodents become a problem when you’ve given them a source of food. They’re simply after something to eat. So if you have bins without fitted lids, fallen bird seed, fallen fruit, open compost heaps, uneaten pet food, or a yard filled with rubbish, then you will more than likely end up with a rodent problem.

 

When it comes to pest control, your most effective weapon is living in a clean environment.

Termites

You’ll be prone to termites if you have water pooling or leaking around your house. They need a damp, humid environment.

Cockroaches

Not many people like cockroaches. This might be because cockroaches can infest even the cleanest of houses.

 

 

 


  

Spiders

If you have common black house spiders, there is a good chance you will soon have white-tail spiders too.

 


 

Ants

For really effective ant control, we recommend a program of inspections to monitor and bait further instances.

 


  

Fleas

Fleas are becoming less common in households as flea control for cats and dogs is simple and effective.

 

 

 


  

Birds

Birds are typically an annoyance rather than a danger to you or your property. We will remove them.

 


  

Bees

Bees can form swarms. If you annoy them or hurt them, they will sting you. We will remove them.

 


  

Flies

But flies are not just annoying. They also carry disease. They will infect your food with disease picked up elsewhere.
