Have you looked at rodent prevention for your home? Spring is here and animals are breeding rapidly – especially rodents. Rodents are mammals characterised by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in each of their jaws. Australia has a vast number of indigenous rodents and quite a few species are classified as pests. Rodents are omnivores, having no preference of food, except the need to constantly chew on any substance due to their consistently growing teeth.
Rodent prevention around your home is necessary due to the hazards they cause, affecting humans and our environments. Rodents have been known to be responsible for destroying insulation, chewing through electrical cables, destabilising structures, contaminating food and spreading disease. They will find any dry space in your home to create a nest including in your roof, wall cavities, disused furniture in storage and boxes used for storage.
In order to be aware of rodent prevention measures, you must first be able to identify the signs of infestation. There will be a presence of droppings, perhaps greasy fur marks on your walls and surfaces, burrows close to your fencing and dwelling, sounds in your roof or walls, and nesting places made from paper, cardboard or rags. Rodents produce in numbers and very quickly so infestations can escalate quickly.
Taking measures to make sure your home is protected is the best method of rodent prevention. Remove any storage boxes that are not needed, clean up your yard of any debris that can be used to make nests and seal any potential entry points.
