Stevie Redback Pest & Termite Control
Rodent Pest Control
Rodents are probably the most unwanted household pests. They can be harmful to babies, sick people and animals with the transmission of disease, can contaminate food and also cause damage to homes.
Many treatment options for rodents are available to consumers. However to properly identify entry and exit points and provide an effective and permanent treatment, a professional inspection is required.
Our technicians will carry out an inspection to identify travel routes, nests and food sources. They will then develop a baiting and or/trapping plan, taking into account specific requirements like pets, children, size of home etc. Lastly, we will also recommend any changes needed around the home to reduce the chance of rodents reappearing.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are common signs of rodent activity?
- Sounds: Mice and rats are generally heard at night, making scurrying, scratching, squeaking or gnawing sounds.
- Droppings: Rat droppings can be up to 18mm long, are dark brown or black and look like small pellets. Mouse droppings are 3-8mm long and have pointed ends.
- Chewing and gnawing: Signs of chewing on food packaging or gnawing on wood, walls or doors.
How can we prevent rodent infestation in our home?
- Remove any obvious points of entry; holes and cracks in floors and walls.
- Carefully store all food in sealed containers.
- Empty garbage and green waste bins regularly and ensure they have tight fitting lids
- Remove water sources. Any leaky pipes or clogged drains can provide breeding environments.
How do you treat rodents?
The best way to treat rodents is to prevent them. If an infestation occurs we will install our baits in locations that are not accessible by other creatures in special bait stations that only allow entry by rodents. Rodents will go searching for water once they have taken the bait. The poisons used are transferable so you will need to monitor your cat or dog to ensure they don’t catch or play with a dead or dying rodent. If this occurs please contact your vet immediately.
