Pest Control for Rats & Mice
Mice and rats have an uncanny ability to seek out and nest in your most treasured items. Boxes of photos, favourite old clothes, baby items and other valuable items in storage will often be shredded to make a comfortable nest for their own family. Rats produce litters between 5 and 12 pups depending on the species. Amazingly, female rats can produce as many as 7 litters per year which means up to 84 offspring per year. Rats incisor teeth (front teeth) never stop growing and must gnaw (chew) on things constantly to wear their teeth down. They will often chew on many objects around the home which may also include electrical wiring and other plastics. Rodents also can detect when food is baited and will become “bait shy” making many off-the-shelf baits ineffective in a short space of time. All of these factors make them a real problem when they decide to reside in your home.

Our Quick Working Rodent Control
Many rodent pest control baiting systems use an anticoagulant rodenticide. An anticoagulant poisoning causes extensive internal bleeding over several days; it is a prolonged and painful death. Anticoagulant rodenticides also contribute to many wildlife and domestic animals being killed through secondary poisoning.
Results Home Services rodent pest control uses a next-generation rodenticide. The active ingredient in our rodent pest control is both a non-anticoagulant and has the ability to break down in the environment rapidly and will not bio-accumulate. In simple terms, the chances of secondary poisoning is a significantly lower risk to wildlife and the environment.
Rodent pest control must be taken seriously!
Restaurants, commercial kitchens, hospitals, homes for the aged and group homes must meet specific health standards when it comes to rodent control. The reason for this is that rodents are major disease carriers. It is not just the rodents that you have to be in direct contact with to pick up a serious disease, but often the diseases from rodents are passed on to humans from contact with their dry urine.
Diseases transmitted by mice and rats fall into two categories:
Diseases transmitted directly from exposure to rat-infected faeces, urine or bites.
Diseases indirectly transmitted to people by an intermediate arthropod vector such as fleas, ticks or mites.
Diseases directly transmitted by rodents
From the transmission of bubonic plague to Weils, typhus and hantavirus, mice and rat infestations can prove harmful to human health. Just some of the diseases they pass on to humans are:
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. This is a viral disease that is transmitted by the rats. This disease is spread in one of three ways: inhaling dust that is contaminated with rat urine or droppings, direct contact with rat faeces or urine, and infrequently due to the bite from a rat.
Weil's disease. This disease attacks the organs. It is a bacterial infection transmitted through contact with rat urine.
Leptospirosis. This is a bacterial disease that can be transmitted by coming into contact with infected water.
Rat-bite Fever. This disease may be transmitted through a bite, scratch or contact with a dead rat.
Salmonellosis. Consuming food or water that is contaminated by rat faeces bacteria can cause this disease.

It is definitely possible to keep rodents from getting inside your home; however the larger the structure the greater the challenge. If you suspect you already have a rodent problem, do not delay in getting help. These little monsters are very unsanitary and will get into your food stocks and supplies in short order and destroy everything, even if they don’t consume it all. Once mice and rats enter an area where food is stored, everything is ruined and once they start breeding, things can quickly get out of control.
