Rodent Control

Having to deal with rodents in your house is a hassle. Rats and Mice can contaminate your food, damage the entire building you live in, and put your health in danger. Rats and mice are known for spreading diseases in several ways, most commonly through saliva, mites, fleas, feces, or direct contact. Because rodents can multiply very fast, as soon as you notice signs of their presence, you must take action to avoid infestation, for instance, by calling a rodent control company.

Signs of Rodents

There are different species of rats around the world, the most common in Australia being the Black rat and the Brown Rat. On top of that, there are also several types of mice that might choose your property as a shelter. If you suspect you have rodents in your house, be careful as the following signs as they might indicate their presence:

  • Droppings – depending on the size, they might be an indication of the presence of mice or rats. Usually, you’ll find droppings in areas rodents are most active in, which is where you should start placing traps.
  • There’s a strong smell around the house – rodents’ urine has a strong musky odour. Once you start smelling their scent, it likely means you have a substantial rodent infestation.
  • Gnawed Holes – if you start seeing holes around your house, that’s a visible sign that rodents are trying to find their way through your property. Mice tend to make smaller holes, usually about the size of a dime, while rats will create larger holes.
  • Nest – if you investigate further, you might even locate a rodent nest.
  • Noises at night – since rodents are nocturnal creatures, you may hear lots of noise at night, when they are running, scratching, or gnawing.
  • Your pets behave weirdly – if you have pets and you notice your dog or cat acting unusual and smelling around, chances are, you have rodents in your property. If your dog is barking beneath furniture or refrigerators, it is time to call a professional pest control company.

Rodents Prevention

If you don’t have rodents in your house, that’s good news! However, to keep it as it is, you must apply the following tips to prevent pests from appearing on your property. They might also be useful to help you contain the invitation and stop it before it becomes too big to handle.

  • Keep the Place Clean – good hygiene is one of the best ways to prevent rodents from coming into your place. Keep your food in sealed containers, maintain your kitchen tidy, and ensure the areas around your garbage bins are kept clean. It is a good idea to put away your pet’s food overnight and to clean all the grills where there might be some food accumulated. The idea is that if you don’t offer food to rodents, and if they don’t find any sources of food inside your property, they won’t choose to stay.
  • Seal All The Holes in Your House – another good idea to avoid mice and rats entering your house would be to seal all holes in your walls, doors, vents, or other spaces around the kitchen or closets.
  • Monitor Your House – to prevent having to deal with an infestation, you should monitor your house. If you suspect the presence of rodents, look for any possible source of food, find out their pathways and nests. If you find signs of rats or mice, contact a professional pest control company.
  • Place traps – if there are rodents in your house, you must take immediate action to eliminate. Setting traps around is an effective method to reduce their numbers. However, if the infestation is too big, you must call a specialist.


You might even decide to make use of rodent deterrent solutions, but keep in mind that not all of them will be effective. Some examples include:

  • Moth Balls- effective with mice, this solution is toxic for children and pets, which is why you must handle it with care.
  • Ammonia –the substance is effective in keeping rodents away as it mimics the smell of their predators’ urine. Keep in mind that it is toxic to pets and children and might leave a bad smell in your house.
  • Peppermint Oil – this one is the safest method of all, it doesn’t leave any unpleasant smell and is easy to apply: all you have to do is to soak cotton balls into peppermint oil and place them around the house. You might have to repeat the process quite often since the smell will fade away quickly.
