Rodent Control, Get Rid of Your Rat and Mice Problem Quickly

Rats and mice are known as rodents. It is critical that rodent control is carried out as soon as the very first sign of an infestation is noticed because rats and mice are prolific breeders and given a suitable environment their numbers can multiply rapidly.

Immediate rodent control prevents rats and mice from establishing themselves and will stop them from causing damage, contaminating food and becoming a serious health risk.

Why do you need rodent control?

When autumn starts setting in, rats and mice begin to look for a warm and comfortable shelter. Rats and mice can feel the cold and unfortunately our heated homes are well suited to their needs. Rats and mice are good climbers. They can easily access roofs via a wall cavity and start nesting in the insulation.

Rats and mice in search of food can find their way inside via openings as small as 10 mm. Rats and mice are nocturnal and while we are asleep they raid garbage bins, steal fruit from kitchen bench tops and help themselves to breakfast cereals.

Rodent Species



Norway rat is a large solid built rodent and brownish grey in colour. They can grow in excess of 30cm long and weigh up to 0.5 kg. The Norway rat’s tail is shorter than its body.


The Roof rat is greyish black, with a slender body and elongated head. It’s smaller than the Norway rat, around 20cm and its tail is the same length or longer than its body.


The House mouse is a small rodent around 10 cm in length. They are greyish black in colour and have a lighter coloured tummy. Its tail is as long as its body.
Scurrying in the roof, scratching in the ceiling, walls and under under the floorboards are usually the very first signs of rodents present. You may also find damaged food packages and scattered droppings near feeding areas and around your home.

In later stages of the infestation, dirty and oily looking rub marks along the wall where rats and mice are running, will become more obvious. You will also notice burrows, gnawing marks and chewed out holes in gyprock walls or skirting boards, urine stains, squeaking sounds and bad odour.

The critical point in preventing rats and mice establishing themselves in and around our homes, is deprivation of favourable conditions in which they can thrive. Rodents need food, water and shelter and a drastic reduction to these necessities will create an uninviting surrounding for these critters. In order to minimise the likelihood of a rodent infestation, ensure all garbage bins are closed and no food is left out overnight. Any opening that rats and mice can utilise as an entry must be repaired or proofed. Keep grass short and reduce overgrown areas in your garden. Unnecessary items and goods that may be kept around the house and yard should be removed.
Aside from playing a role in transmitting diseases, rats and mice contaminate stored food, damage utility cables and pipes and are known to have caused fires by gnawing on electrical wiring. Rodents can nest inside machinery, appliances, upholstery, soft furnishings, cavities in the ceiling, under the floor and in piles of rubbish. They are prolific breeders and given suitable conditions they can multiply rapidly. In Sydney not only the climate, but also demolishing for redevelopment, household pets and poultry can contribute strongly to rats and mice relocating and establishing themselves within and around our homes.
