Mice & Rodent Control in Truganina

Rats & Mice Removal

Rodents (from Latin rodere, “gnawing”) are rodent mammals characterized by a pair of continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws. They are the most diverse of mammals, inhabiting a wide variety of terrestrial habitats, including man-made environments.

Most rodents are small animals with stout bodies, short limbs and long tails. They use their sharp incisors to nibble food, dig burrows, and defend themselves. Most eat seeds and other plants, but some eat a more varied diet. They tend to be social animals, and many species live in societies with complex ways of communicating with each other. Mating in rodents can range from monogamous to polygamous to promiscuous . Many have litters between the ages of 6 and 12 and can do this several times a year.

House mice, and sometimes wedge mice, are found indoors in search of warmth and shelter for nesting sites and food.

If you’re dealing with a rat or mice infestation and need pest control services, here are some steps you can take:

  1. Identify the extent of the infestation: Assess the severity of the rat or mice infestation in your home or property. Look for signs such as droppings, gnaw marks, nests, or sightings of live rodents.

  2. Research and choose a reputable pest control company: Look for pest control companies in your area that specialize in rat and mice control. Read customer reviews, check their websites, and ensure they have the necessary licenses and expertise to handle rodent infestations.

  3. Contact the pest control company: Reach out to the selected pest control companies and provide them with details about the infestation. Describe the signs you’ve observed and any specific concerns you have.

  4. Inspection and assessment: The pest control company will likely schedule an inspection of your property to assess the extent of the rodent infestation. They will identify entry points, nesting areas, and potential food sources for the rodents.

  5. Treatment plan and options: Once the inspection is complete, the pest control company will provide you with a treatment plan tailored to your specific situation. They may offer different options such as trapping, baiting, or rodenticide application. The treatment plan will depend on the severity of the infestation, the type of rodents present, and any specific considerations, such as the presence of pets or children.

  6. Professional rodent control treatments: If you agree to the proposed treatment plan, the pest control company will proceed with the necessary rodent control measures. They will set traps, place bait stations, or apply rodenticides in strategic locations to eliminate the rats or mice.

  7. Follow-up and prevention: After the initial treatment, the pest control company may schedule follow-up visits to monitor the effectiveness of the treatment, remove any trapped rodents, and take additional measures if necessary. They may also provide recommendations on preventive measures such as sealing entry points, improving sanitation, and eliminating food sources to prevent future infestations.

When choosing a pest control company for rodent control, ensure they have experience in dealing with rats and mice and use safe and effective methods. Additionally, inquire about any guarantees they offer regarding the effectiveness of their treatments.

By working with a professional pest control company, you can effectively address the rodent infestation and implement preventive measures to avoid future problems.
