Rodents Control

Rodents do not only spread diseases and contaminate food, they also cause damage to your assets. Rodents have to continually gnaw on their teeth to keep them from growing too long. They will gnaw on anything even, so when you hear noises in your roof, walls or under your home they are not only nesting, but they may be gnawing on your water pipes, plaster, ducting for you heater and air-conditioning, and electrical cables and conduits. Every year damaged and fires are caused by rodent infestations.

Sign of Rodents

Here are some tell-tale signs or key indicators of a rodent infestation:

  • Droppings Usually The first clue of a rodent infestation is their droppings. You may find these anywhere, but most of our clients first find these in the pantry or kitchen cupboards and drawers. Mouse droppings are smooth with pointed ends, and are 3-5 mm long. Rat droppings are shiny black and depending on the species will be from 12mm to 18mm long.

  • Sounds While you may not be able to see them, you can probably hear rodents moving throughout your roof void, wall cavities, subfloor areas, or even under the kick panelling of you cupboards. This can also cause some pets to be excited and clawing at a particular area.
  • Damage food packaging Rodents will gnaw their way through packaging to get to food products; you may see this in products in your pantry and cupboards.
  • Odours You can smell rodent urine or a musty odour in some poorly ventilated areas such as your pantry and cupboards where a rodent infestation is present.
  • Sighting You may see mice or rats scurrying along a wall or under some furniture.

  • Gnawing Rodents have to gnaw continuously to keep their teeth down and under control. You may see evidence of this on you walls and ceilings but this also occurs in areas you cannot see such as water pipes, ducting for you heater and air-conditioning, and electrical cables and conduits. Every year homes are water damaged and fires are caused by rodent infestations.

    Rodents Control

  • Runways and Grease marks Greasy rub marks are caused by rodents repeatedly rubbing their oily fur along runways e.g. walls or entrance points. Rats are neophobic (scared of new things) so they will follow the same runway throughout their territory.
  • Tracks Rodent tracks can be seen in areas where there is a layer of dust, such as under the house, in the roof or inside the home on a dusty surface or under furniture. Often, rodent tails also leave a swing mark.
  • Burrows Burrows can be found along walls, or fences, under buildings and deckings, stored items, vegetation, wood piles or concrete slabs.

Rodent Prevention Tips

There are many ways homeowners can proactively prevent and get rid of rodent infestations in their homes:

  • Install door seals on the bottom on exterior doors.
  • Install screens to vents and chimneys.
  • Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the home, including areas where utilities and pipes enter.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly.

Rodent (Trap)

Trapping is the safest and most effective method for controlling rats in and around homes, garages, and other structures. Because snap traps can be used over and over, trapping is less costly than poison baits but more labor intensive. Traps can be set and left indefinitely in areas such as attics where rats have been a problem in the past. Snap traps with large plastic treadles are especially effective, but finding the best locations to set traps is often more important than what type of trap is used. Generally, young rats can’t be trapped until they are about a month old, which is when they leave the nest to venture out for food. The best places to set traps are in secluded areas where rats are likely to travel and seek shelter. Droppings, gnawings, and damage indicate the presence of rodents, and areas where such evidence is found usually are the best places to set traps, especially when these areas are located between their shelter and food sources. Place traps in natural travel ways, such as along walls, so the rodents will pass directly over the trigger of the trap.

Rodent (Baits)

While trapping is generally recommended for controlling rats indoors, when the number of rats around a building is high, you might need to use baits to achieve adequate control, especially if there is a continuous re-infestation from surrounding areas. If this is the case, consider hiring a licensed pest control applicator who is trained to use rodenticides safely. Baits to control rodents are formulated with an attractant (generally food) and a rodenticide, those baits are placed in a tamper-resistant rodent bait stations to keep children, pets and non-target animals away from poison rodent bait.
