rats & mice

Rats and mice successfully co-habit with humans sharing their food and shelter, eating whatever food they can. Rodents contaminate more food than they eat and in so doing, many diseases are transmitted. Rats were responsible for the deaths of 25 million Europeans from the Bubonic Plague. Being basically social animals, rats and mice live in groups, in nests constructed of any soft materials available (eg paper, fabrics, insulation). Out of doors they may nest in burrows adjacent to waterways, under buildings and so on, in trees and vines, in garbage dumps, rubbish heaps and other places where food and shelter are within reasonable range. Indoors they may construct nests in wall cavities, in roof voids, under floors and even within stored foods.

Rats can be very persistent and if they manage to gain access into your business they can spread disease, cause considerable damage and contaminate food.

Rat or mice treatment

Because rats and mice are extremely destructive pests and can pose great financial and health risks it is important to have an effective rodent management program. The most effective way to remove rodents is with the use of rodenticides. We have a large selection of rodenticides to suit all applications and when secured in lockable rodent station achieve a safe environment of control. Rodents feed in the stations and can not take bait away with them so risk of cross contamination is reduced.

Each rodent station is placed strategically depending on site and secured in place. Sites include around the perimeter of building, along fence lines, close to entrances and areas where rodents breed and forage for food. All rodent stations are identified on a site map and kept on site with the service register.

A monitoring program is established to ensure continued control.

Non chemical control solutions and odour bags are also available.
