Does DIY Rat and Mice Control Really Work?
You’ve just discovered a rat or mice in your property. Clearly, you need to control the situation before it gets worse.
Rodents are a major nuisance for families and businesses. When they enter the premise, they can spread transmittable disease and cause damage to the property. You can try to contain the problem yourself, but the use of inefficient commercial products will only cost you time, money and effort.
If you suspect you have a rat or mice problem, look for the following signs of infestation:
|Urine trails and droppings|
|Damaged electrical cables, insulation material or timber structures|
|Bite marks on packages of food|
|Family, staff or customers are getting sick|
|Burrowed holes inside or outside the property|
|Holes chewed through walls or doors|
Tips to Control Rats and Mice
Rodents are cunning creatures and love to hide.
You need to locate their hiding spots and find how they might have gotten into your property. If you have large openings in mesh screens, cracks or crevices around the building – be sure to conceal them straight away.
Whether you trap or kill the rodent, you need to choose the right kind of bait to lure them. Luckily, rodents are not fussy eaters and will consume almost anything you can think of. Think of cheese, fruit, nuts, peanut butter, biscuits, sweets, bread, seeds, candy and even bugs. Be warned – this may require a lot of trial and error before you find a food that grabs their attention.
If successful, you either need to dispose the rodent or release it into the wild. Whether dead or alive, you must avoid direct contact with the rodent, as they can transmit a number of diseases to humans.
But what if you don’t have the time, knowledge or resources to control a rat or mice problem yourself?
Avoid the Hassle of DIY Pest Control – Let Critter Busters Do the Hard Work
Critter Busters helps you avoid property damage and the transmission of disease with a custom treatment plan. Each plan is designed to control rodents in the building and the surrounding environment.
No matter the scope or size of your infestation – we have the latest rodent monitoring and control systems to handle any situation
Our team inspects both inside and outside the premise to detect rodent activity. And we choose the most appropriate form of treatment to control the situation.
Most treatment plans incorporate one or more of the following control methods:
- Rodent Bait Stations: Each bait station is strategically placed in areas where rodents are most active. These stations are specially designed to only be accessible to rodents, which minimises the risk of accidentally poising pets, crawling toddlers, and wildlife.
- Rodent Traps: A timeless yet effective treatment that controls rodents in places where bait cannot be used.
- Preventative Advice: Remove sources of exposed food and water during the day. If running a business, revise your rubbish management system to keep exposed food and scraps indoors overnight.
Enhanced Defence: To prevent further infestation, Critter Busters can seal up entry points by fixing holes in mesh sheets, replace broken or loose roof tiles, and other exposed areas in the building.
