Rats & Rodents

Think you may have rodents? There are three species of rats and mice considered as urban pests in Australia.

These are the Norway rat, Roof rat and House mouse.

The common signs of rodent infestation

  • Droppings – size varies greatly from mice to rat species and are generally banana shape.
  • Rubmarks – greasy/dirt marks around areas where rodents gain access or harbour, deposited from the rodents fur.
  • Gnawings – chew marks to timber, wiring, conduits, gyprock and plastics.
  • Noises – one of the first things people notice with a rodent infestation is sounds from the roof space generally at night . These include scratching, squealling, gnawing and clawing.
  • Odour – rodents have a distinct pungent odour .
  • Nests – usually made of straw, rags or paper and in concealed areas such as the roof space and subfloor.

Why should rodents be controlled?

Rodents destroy property and can cause fires due to gnawing electrical wiring. Historically rodents have been the carriers and transmitters of deadly disease and disease organisms, bacteria responsible for serious human disease.

Rodents can breed rapidly and have proven to be adaptive and successful. A quick response is essential to prevent rodents putting the occupants of your home or workplace at risk.
