Why Rodents Are Pests

Rodents are some of the biggest threats to the health of your family, pets, customers and anyone else who visits your property. Not investing in rodent control Toowoomba services and continuing to live with an unchecked rodent infestation on your property could lead to a few major problems, including:

  • Damage to your home. When making nests and searching for food, rodents won’t hesitate to chew through plasterboard, cladding, aluminium flashing and more. Without rodent control, a large infestation could even do structural damage to your property.
  • Health concerns. Rats are one of the most notorious disease-spreading animals in the world. They can find their way onto almost any surface, carrying germs and viruses wherever they go.
  • Wasted food. Rats and mice are constantly looking for food and will spoil any food items they can chew their way into. By addressing this problem and investing in rat and mice control Toowoomba services, you can avoid throwing out contaminated food.
  • Damaged appliances. Rodents can chew through almost anything, including the plastics and wiring on your appliances, damaging electronics and ruining internal components.


Signs of Rodent Infestations

The immediate warning sign of a rodent infestation is seeing rats or mice on your property. Where there’s one, there’s more to be found. If you spot rodents in your house, it’s time to speak to our Rodent Control Toowoomba specialists about having your property inspected.
Keep your eye out for these common signs of rat, mouse and rodent infestations:

  • Visible rodents.  If you spot a rodent in your home, immediately contact our team regarding our rodent control Toowoomba services. Rodents multiply quickly and small issues can rapidly get out of hand.
  • Urine and droppings. Around the same size as a grain of rice, rodent droppings are a giveaway of infestations.
  • Nests. Mice nest in order to raise their pups. They seek out warm, dry areas that are well protected and close to a food source. Female mice carry their young for 21-28 days, and each litter can have 5-12 pups.
  • Strange sounds. Hearing scratching or squeaking sounds at night? You may have rodents scurrying about the place. Rodents will make their home in any place that’s warm and dry, including ceiling and wall cavities, behind cabinets and underneath your floor.
  • Marks on your walls. Rodents tend to leave dirty streaking on surfaces as they run by. Keep an eye out for unusual marks that might have been left by a passing rodent. By discussing rats control Toowoomba services with our team of experts, you can avoid these problems in future.
