Spotting the signs of rats and mice and implementing effective removal solutions is vital for all homes and businesses in Brisbane. Rodents pose serious threats to the wellbeing and health of people, and they must be dealt with as soon as possible to prevent them from excessive breeding. AGJ Pest Management offers bespoke solutions as the best way to get rid of mice and rats.
The Dangers of Rodent Infestations
Although native Australian rodents, such as hopping mice, are not dangerous to humans and should be protected, introduced species may infest residential areas and carry diseases. Introduced rodents can:
- Contaminate food with their hair, droppings and urine
- Carry serious diseases such as leptospirosis and typhus fever
- Create disgusting odours
- Carry fleas and ticks, endangering pets and humans
- Damage food containers, wood, insulation and wiring by gnawing
Feral rodents will eat rubbish, pet food, food scraps, fallen fruit, composts, dog faeces and bird seed, travelling long distances to find food and water.
The Signs You Need Mice and Rat Control
There are a few things to look out for in residential and commercial properties, although the signs are hard to ignore. Most people will notice:
- Droppings and urine in and around buildings
- Gnawed objects
- Runways – rats habitually follow the same pathways to food
- Dark, greasy rub marks along walls
- Live or dead rats & mice
- Scratching, gnawing, squeaking and fighting sounds at night
- Unusual behaviour in cats and dogs, especially at night
Our Thorough Rodent Inspections
If you’ve witnessed any of the above signs, one of our trained pest control technicians will carry out an inspection to determine the extent of the problem and suggest the best solution. They will check for evidence of rodents in the foundation and subfloor areas, internal fittings and living areas, cupboards and draws, roof void and ceilings, nearby structures, the kitchen and pantry.
Once we have determined the scope of your rodent problem, our exterminators will use traps, poison baits and other methods to clear your house of pests. Our team will also advise you on the best ways to prevent the problem occurring again, as well as laying preventative traps and repellents to discourage rodent intruders.
