Protecting your home with rat control & mouse control
Having rats or mice in your home is more than an inconvenience, they can be a serious health risk, particularly in kitchens or areas where children play. A rat or mouse can also do significant damage to your home and furniture by gnawing through wood and plastic. Rats and Mice can even cause house fires by chewing through electrical cables.
Signs of a rodent problem
You may be thinking about seeking assistance with rat or mouse control if any or several of the following apply:
- Scratching – Noises in the walls or ceilings as the rodents scurry around
- Droppings – Mice droppings are dark and similar in size and shape as a grain of rice. Rat droppings are significantly larger. You are most likely to find them along walls or in areas of significant rodent activity such as in cupboards or under sinks.
- Distinctive smell – Rats and mice leave a trail that leaves an ammonia-like smell that will be particularly strong in more enclosed areas such as under cupboards
- Damage – Rodents have teeth that grow continuously and will gnaw on wood, plastic, cables and other hard materials
- Nests – Mice build nests with shredded material such as newspaper and fabrics. These will tend to be in hidden places such as behind fridges. Nests will often contain young mice.
