Pest Control for Rats & Mice

Our services provide fast and effective rodent pest control services in the Brisbane region.  Don’t wait until you find a nest of mice. Mice and rats have an uncanny ability to make a nest in your most treasured items. Boxes of old photos, items in storage, food products, coats, and bedding all make great places for rats and mice to take up housekeeping.

Rodent pest control must be taken seriously!

Restaurants, commercial kitchens, hospitals, homes for the aged and group homes must all 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 of 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.

 

If you have a rodent problem, whether big or small, we can quickly deal with any infestation you may have, using the most effective means possible to solve your rodent problem.

Signs of rat or mice activity

Once they have made their way inside your property, rodents prefer to remain hidden during the day. It is often easier to identify a potential infestation by looking for signs of activity, rather than trying to spot an actual mouse.

What to look for:
  • Droppings and urine stains.  Look for these in and around the home.

  • Rodent odours.  House mice emit musky odours and urine has a strong ammonia-like smell.

  • Gnawing marks.  Teeth marks on food, building materials, wires and on the edges of beams.

  • Pets excited at night.   When rodents are around, pets will often become excited and especially have difficulty settling down at night.

  • Some rodents (norway rat) burrow.  Check for signs for burrowing along foundations and walls and under shrubbery.  

  • Rodents make sounds at night.   Listen for scratching, gnawing and/or fighting.

  • Grease marks against floors, walls and skirting. This is caused by mouse fur constantly brushing against these surfaces.

How to prevent rats and mice from entering the home

Steps for rat and mouse prevention:
  • Reduce clutter. Unkempt areas give rats and/or mice plenty of spaces to hide and nest. If every room in your home is cluttered, your entire house can easily be a breeding ground for rodents.

  • Contain perishables. Keep all food in sealed containers and constantly clean crumbs off tables, counters and floors. Empty your rubbish bins frequently.

  • Eat in a dining area. If you eat in areas other than then kitchen, be sure to keep the carpets and floors well vacuumed so that vermin are not attracted to any crumbs left behind in those areas.

 
  • Examine the outside of your home to be sure that all possible entrance points are well sealed.

  • Remove any garbage and all other household rubbish away from your home.

  • Do not have firewood piled up near the exterior of your home.

Do you already have out of control rodents?

Call us at 07 3823 2500 for a quick appointment.

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.
