Rodent Control

Contact Us

As the weather starts to cool down, rodents will seek shelter to look for warm places to nest. Unfortunately, your home may be just the place they're looking for. While rodents may seem harmless, they can actually cause a lot of damage to your property and pose a serious health risk to you and your family. That's why it's important to take steps to prevent them from getting inside in the first place and to get rid of them if they do manage to get in.

Rats and mice may seem like they're the same, but there are actually some key differences between them. Rats are larger than mice, with adults averaging 18-20 inches in length from nose to tail. They also have thicker bodies, longer tails, and larger feet. When it comes to behaviour, rats are more likely to be active at night while mice are more likely to be active during the day.

Mice are also known to be attracted to sweet things like chocolate while rats are more attracted to meat as a food source.

If you think you have a rodent problem, it's important to take action right away. Contact a pest control professional who can help identify the type of rodent and develop a plan to get rid of them.

Norway Rat (Rattus norvegicus)

Roof rat (Rattus rattus)

House Mouse (Mus musculus)

E1 Pest Control
The Norway rat is a large, burrowing rodent that is found throughout the world. Measuring up to 40 centimetres in length, these rats are much larger than their cousins, the house mouse. Norway rats also known as a sewer rat, have either brown fur or black, with heavy bodies and small blunt nose. They are good swimmers and climbers and are adept at squeezing through small spaces. These rats typically live in burrows underground, but can also be found in sewers, wall cavities, and other dark places. Norway rats are generally shy and timid around humans but can become aggressive if they feel threatened. These pests are known to carry a variety of diseases, including typhus and leptospirosis, which can be deadly to humans. As a result, it is important to take precautions if you suspect that you have a Norway rat infestation.
E1 Pest Control
A Roof rat is a black rat that is an excellent climber. They are also called "ship rats," " Alexandrian rats," and "Black Asians." Roof rats have a pointed nose. They plague homes and commercial establishments and are vectors of disease. They usually live in elevated areas such as trees, attics, roofs, and false ceilings. These rodents are prodigious breeders. A female roof rat can produce up to eight litters per year each containing six to eight young. Roof rats are mostly nocturnal creatures that are very shy of humans. However, they will readily approach if food is presented to them. They will eat almost any type of food but prefer fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Roof rats contaminate food and spread diseases through their feces, saliva, and urine. Some of the diseases they carry are typhus, jaundice, rat-bite fever, and salmonellosis. Control these pests by removing their sources of food and water and making their environment uninhabitable for them. Various traps and baits can also be used to get rid of roof rats.

The house mouse (Mus musculus) is a small rodent that is usually found in homes. It has grey fur or brown colour with a long tail. House mice are about 5 to 10 centimetres long and can get into small holes as little as 2-3 cm. They like to eat cereal, grains, and fruits. House mice are intelligent and can learn tricks. They also like to play with toys. Some people keep house mice as pets. House mice can be harmful because they can carry diseases through food contamination, mouse dropping, and urine stains. Most mice can also damage your food and belongings. If you see a house mouse in your home, contact a pest control professional to get rid of it.

Some tips for preventing rodents from getting into your home

01 | Sealing

Seal up any cracks or holes on the outside of your home. Pests can squeeze through surprisingly small openings, so it's important to make sure there are no potential entry points.

02 | Food hygiene

Store food in airtight storage containers and keep your counters and floors clean. This will reduce the chances of rodents being attracted to your home because you leave crumbs. Don't leave pet food or animal feed out overnight. If you have indoor pets, make sure to put their food away at night so that rodents don't have a chance to get to it.

03 | Cleaning

Fix any leaks or standing water around your home. Keep your garbage can lids closed. Clean your yard clean and remove debris. This will make it less attractive to pests and make it easier to spot them if they are trying to get into your home.

04 | Inspection

Regularly check for signs of pests and take action immediately if any are found. Inspect deliveries of food and drink, furniture, etc. for signs of pests.

Methods we use to eliminate and prevent rodents

There are a few methods to eliminate rodents in both residential and commercial premises. The most common method is through the use of baits and rodenticides.

E1 Pest Control


These work by either attracting the rodent to the rat bait or mouse bait to poison. We use poison that within a single dose of feed the mouse or rat will die within 2 - 3 days. We place bait in lockable bait stations so pets cannot get to or in roof voids. Also, the type of baits we use is very low in secondary poisoning.

Trapping is a non toxic solution that can be done either with live traps or kill traps. Snap traps are the most common type of kill trap, and they work by cutting off the rodent's head or neck when they try to take the bait.

Glue boards and glue traps are also effective, and they work by trapping the rodent on a board coated with a strong adhesive.

Habitat Modification

Finally, habitat modification can also be effective in preventing rodents from taking up residence in an area. This includes sealing up potential entry points, removing food and water sources, and eliminating hiding places. By using one or more of these methods, it is possible to effectively eliminate rodents from residential or commercial premises.

Signs of rodents in your home

There are a few different ways to tell if you have rodents in your home.

- see them running around or hear them scurrying in the walls, ceilings, or roof voids

- find rat droppings or mouse droppings around your home, which can be dangerous if ingested.

- look out for gnawing damage. rodents will often gnaw on wood, wires, and other materials in your home, which can cause serious damage. If you notice any bite marks or rat damage, it's important to take action right away to get rid of the problem.

What are rats and mice attracted to?

There are a few different things that rats and mice are attracted to. First, they're attracted to food sources, so if you have food that is left out or not properly sealed, they will be attracted to it. They're also attracted to water sources, so if you have leaks or standing water around your home, they will be drawn to it. Additionally, they like to nest in warm, dark places, so if you have any holes or cracks in your walls or foundation, they may be using them to get inside. Due to constant teeth growing they need to frequently gnaw to grind down their teeth. They will chew on shredded paper, electrical cables, food items, and even brickwork.

What problems can rodents cause?

Anyone who has ever had a rodent problem knows that they can be more than just a nuisance- they can also be dangerous.

Rats and mice can damage your property and cause electrical fires by gnawing on wood, electrical wires, and other materials. This is due to the reason their teeth constantly grow and need to be worn down constantly.

Rodents can contaminate food sources and spread diseases to humans and pets. Some of the diseases rodents can spread include salmonella, hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV), and tularemia. If you come into contact with rodent urine or droppings, you could become very ill. In some cases, these diseases can be deadly

Rodent droppings can trigger allergies and asthma attacks. This is because mice and rats are known to produce large quantities of dust and dander, which can become airborne and inhaled. In addition, rodents frequently leave droppings behind, which can also trigger an allergic reaction. And if a rodent dies in an enclosed space, the resulting decomposition can produce harmful gases that can trigger an asthma attack.

Rodents can also affect your mental health. Several studies have shown that exposure to rodents can lead to anxiety and depression. In one study, individuals who lived in homes with rodent infestations were more likely to suffer from mental health problems than those who didn't. The reason for this is not entirely clear, but it is thought that the constant stress of living with rodents can take a toll on mental health over time. If you have rodents in your home, it is important to take steps to get rid of them as soon as possible. Not only will this help to protect your physical health, but it may also help to improve your mental health.
