Effective Pest Control for Rats and Mice

Destructive pests that can spread disease, rodents risk both the safety of your home and the health of your family. Both rats and mice can bring harmful bacteria into your home, contaminate your food, and destroy wiring, walls, and furniture.

Because rodents breed so quickly, it’s always a good idea to call a professional pest controller if you suspect they’re in your home. If you wait to address a rat or mice problem, a small problem can quickly become a substantial infestation.

How to spot a rodent infestation

Recognising the presence of rats or mice can get you ahead of a potential infestation. Here’s what you need to know.

The differences between rats and mice

Rats and mice are both species of rodents that commonly infest homes. But, if you see one, you can tell the difference thanks to their appearance.

  • Mice are usually 3 to 10 cm long and much smaller than rats
  • Pest mice are typically brown or grey
  • Pest rats are generally brown or black
  • Compared to rats, adult mice have larger ears and a longer tail to body ratio

Signs of rats and mice in the home

You don’t need to see a rodent to know that they’re around. Some of the signs they leave behind include:

  • Noises in roof spaces during the night
  • Small to medium size cylindrical, brown droppings, especially in the kitchen or pantry
  • Pets taking particular interest in walls and floor areas around the home
  • Stains on ceilings
  • Gnawed furniture and cabinets, particularly near food sources
  • A musty, urine-like smell
  • Rustling, crawling, or gnawing sounds in walls
  • “Faulty” wiring, including lights

Rodent behaviours

Both rats and mice are adept at hiding thanks to many of their behaviours, like:

  • They use their whiskers to sense movement so that they can navigate dark areas
  • Reaching hard to access areas by chewing through timber, insulation, wiring, and more
  • Mice tend only to travel short distances and remain near food, while rats will venture further from nesting areas
  • Some species will climb through drains and sewers

How to avoid a rodent infestation

You can use prevention strategies in your garden and home to avoid a future rat or mice infestation. To keep rodents away, we recommend:

  • Mowing your lawn frequently
  • Trim and remove any unwanted shrubs
  • Dump garden waste regularly
  • Collect fruit and nuts from trees as soon as possible, and pick up fallen fruit
  • Clean pet food bowls immediately after use
  • Block holes, cracks, and gaps in the home’s foundation, walls, and roof tiles
  • Store food (including pet food) in airtight containers
