Rodents (rats & mice) are a serious issue that affects many Australian homes and businesses. Our properties are very attractive to them, as they provide them with everything they need: food, water and shelter.
Not only do rodents spread bacterial infections and diseases, but they also cause damage to your home. Rodents have to continually gnaw on their teeth to keep them from growing too long. They will gnaw on anything, so when you hear noises in your roof, walls or under your home they are not only nesting, but they may be gnawing on your water pipes, plaster, ducting for your heater and air-conditioning, and electrical cables and conduits. Every year several homes and businesses are water-damaged and fires are caused by rodent infestations, which is why it’s so important to call for rodent removal and treatment as soon as you notice signs of them moving in.
The high demand of calls for rodent control in Melbourne and across Victoria has spiked in recent years, as rodents have been reaching plague proportions in some Australian and Victorian regions due to favourable breeding and feeding conditions across the rural and suburban areas of the states.
