Rodent Control - Rats and Mice

Rat damage
Guardian Pest Control can help with all rodent control problems in your home or business. Rats and mice have potential to cause severe damage to properties as they are able to chew through even the toughest of materials including wood, lead and electrical wires.
There are three types of rodents present in Australia, the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus), the roof rat (Rattus rattus) and the house mouse (Mus musculus). Rats and mice may live and nest within buildings indefinitely, provided they have food, water and shelter. Often rodents will enter and nest in homes throughout autumn and winter, which is why infestations are far worse during this time.

Rats and Mice - Rodent Control with Guardian Pest Control


Guardian Pest Control technicians will offer you professional rodent control advice for the eradication of rats and mice at your property. By identifying any obvious rodent entry points we can advise you on how to decrease the likelihood of further rodent entry.
Baits will be placed at regular intervals which will eliminate the current rodent population in the house and will also eliminate future rodent entry, usually for 6 months to a year. We have lockable stations available to protect pets and children.
What it won't do is stop future brief rodent incursions, but these will be eliminated by current baiting. Unfortunately it can't be guaranteed that rodents won't die in the house, however most will leave the premises to look for water.
It will take between 7-10 days before the current rodent activity ceases. If rodent activity resumes after this time please allow 7-10 days before contacting Guardian Pest Control to check baits.

What you can do to help control rats and mice


Clear any stored rubbish, boxes, textiles etc. from areas of concern.
After 2-3 weeks of the initial treatment try to block as many holes as possible. Guardian Pest Control's technician will assist you in identifying any possible access points.
Cut long grass, trees and bushes away from house to stop easy access.
Lift dog bowls and water bowls off the ground nightly, which helps to eliminate water and food sources for rats and mice.
