Mice and rats are quite adaptable and common pests around the world, and Australia is no exception. They may invade your home or business premises at any time of the year, mostly during fall and winter. Females tend to give birth to 60 offspring per year and begin reproducing at 5 weeks old! Also, a single mouse can produce more than 50 droppings per day, contaminating food items and stored food products along the way. This makes mouse and rat control an absolute necessity for homes and businesses alike.
These pests are responsible for millions of dollars worth of damages each year to buildings, food, documents, food items and clothing. Other damages that are attributable to mice and rats are holes in siding, foundation disruption and soil erosion (from tunneling). It is also estimated that approximately 80% of property fires of unknown origin are the result of rats or mice chewing through the wiring in the walls and other electrical appliances.
Rats and mice control also becomes essential to ensure health and safety of humans. These pests are known to be responsible for over 50 types of diseases (bacterial, viral and parasitic) such as food poisoning, rat bite fever, intestinal worms and Hantavirus. Also, rats and mice bite people.
Preventing rats and mice infestation means maintaining excellent levels of sanitation in your home or business property.

Once the mice or rats are successfully removed, they will also help you ensure that you keep them out of your property for good. Mice proofing, also known as mouse exclusion is a technique employed to seal and close all openings that mice and rats may use to enter your property. Even small openings, through which a wooden pencil can be stuck into, will be utilized by mice to squeeze through. Even if the opening it too small for mice and rats, if they can find an edge, they will gnaw on it to make the hole bigger. All of these holes need to be closed up to ensure these pests don’t return.
Professional pest control solutions includes thorough inspection to locate all potential entry points and using a variety of products and methods to mouse-proof your property for good.
