Rodents

Pest control of rodents on the Sunshine Coast

Rodents present a serious threat to your home.

Rats can carry and transmit a number of serious diseases; they can also introduce disease-carrying parasites such as fleas and ticks into your home. With their oversized front teeth they also chew on a variety of items, causing great damage around the house.

Rodents enter your home looking for food, warmth and water. Because of their shape, they are able to squeeze through spaces that on first sight look far too small for them. All holes should be sealed to prevent their entry and reentry.

The habits and biology of rodents make them particularly difficult to control. Being instinctively wary of new things in their environment, such as traps and baits, they colonise in attics, burrows, wall voids, under concrete, and other hard-to-reach places.

Rodents are rapid breeders. Some species will breed all year round, making it very challenging to control a colony.

If you find a rodent in your house, a pest control professional should be contacted immediately for assistance.
