Rodent Pest Control Melbourne
Seldom seen, often heard. A gnawing menace on the go.
You hardly ever see this pest but you can always be sure of its presence somewhere in your vicinity. Rodents, both rats and mice, often hide in the holes underground, in burrows or any place that is close to some water supply. Rats and mice are very common in filthy places like garbage dumps, sewage plants, dumping grounds of food industries, backyards etc. where food is abundant.
Two types of rats are common in Australia- the roof rat and the sewer rat. The roof rats are often found on the roof voids and survive on fruits from the nearby plants. They are known to be discrete and rarely venture into houses and other commercial places. It's the sewer rats that are considered as a pest as they live in the drains and feed on anything and everything they can get their hands on. These rats are generally active at night but can sometimes be spotted during the day too when their population is unusually high.
Mice are generally considered less of a pest than rats but they are a menace nevertheless. They are prolific breeders which makes them a persistent pest in your area. Their behaviour is similar to that of rats and they are equally dangerous, if they are nesting in and around your area.
Why Rodent Control?
Rodents have to gnaw on substances compulsively to keep their incisors from growing. It is this nature of theirs that makes them the most dangerous pest as they tend to gnaw on wires of all kinds. This damages the electrical connections and leads to other hazards like nasty house fires. It's often the electricians and other handy men who report the signs of a rat's presence. When they do, make sure you take immediate action by calling us on 1300 780 980.
