Rats & Mice

Rats & Mice

Rats and Mice successfully co-habit with humans, eating whatever food they can find and sharing the shelter of our buildings.

Rodents contaminate more food than they eat and this can result in many diseases being transmitted.

The 3 major pest species are the Norway Rat, the Roof Rat, and the House Mouse. During times when the weather becomes less favorable like during winter, rodents move into our homes for both food and shelter.

In commercial premises rodents can be a problem all year round, and mice can reach plague proportions in rural areas.

Although rodents don’t have great vision, their sense of smell and taste is so highly developed that they can detect minute quantities of chemicals in foodstuffs, this can lead to “bait shyness” successful control requires an
Integrated Pest Management(IPM) approach.

IPM involves consideration of all control procedures including attention to sanitation and hygiene, trapping, proofing and baiting procedures.

All control procedures are preceded by a thorough inspection of the entire premises to identify the pest rodent species and to define the extent of the infestation.
