Rodent Control in Canberra
Rats and mice are on the move in Canberra. Rodent Control is important.
It’s an all to familiar story in Canberra, with the cold weather comes the rats and mice. The actual fact is, rodents are always here. Living among us in the suburbs, in the city, in our rural areas and in our commercial areas.
Now they’re cold and want to get inside our premises. Rodents ar warm blooded mammals and require warmth to survive and to continue their rapid breeding cycle.
Whats wrong with having rodents in the home?
Nobody wants feral rats and mice in their home. Both are capable of spreading disease-causing bacteria, they damage structures, fittings, furnishings and the like. They leave their droppings and urine all over the place and are not pleasant guests to have coexisting with your family under the same roof.
How do rodents get in?
Rats and mice can usually find ways into most buildings. Building defects are an all too common discovery by our technicians when dealing with rodent problems.
Having broken vents as pictured is inviting rodents into your home. Part of your winter pest checklist should be to locate areas or entry points such as this and have them repaired. If you have a problem with rats and mice right now and are trying to control them with baits or traps, you must stop them getting in.
Being winter, if they can get in, they’ll keep getting in.
Here is another example of an entry point. Rats have removed the stones and burrowed their way below this decking of the home. Getting below the deck gave them access to the sub-floor of the home and once they’re in, they’ll be in your kitchen in no time.
You need to locate all possible entry points, some will be obvious as pictured. Some will be less obvious and will likely require somebody with experience in dealing with rats and mice on a day to day basis.
How you can help with rodent control
Often we will provide a pest control service for a rodent problem in a home. The home owner did not repair the building defects that allowed them entry and more rodents will get in a month or two after the initial infestation. More costs.
It’s important to point out all known entry points to our clients, stopping access into buildings is actually part of the rodent control process. For complete control to be gained, rodent proofing to structures must be undertaken.
