With the cooler weather fast approaching you may end up with these little creatures making there house within your home. With the warmth in your ceiling, perhaps nesting in your insulation and living in your wall cavities, it is a good idea to start some preventative measures now.

There are a few different pest control measures that can be undertaken in order to trap or poision rodents. First and most popular management of rodents is bait stations and baits. These come in the form of small boxes where bait blocks can be placed inside and positioned around the home in places that are out of the way to humans and pets, such as behind the fridge/freezer, in the ceiling cavity, behind the T.V. or cupboards. These baits are for use in Internal Pest Control. For External Pest Control of rodents, lockable bait boxes are available. Another control method is the glue board trap, which the rodent gets stuck to and then can be disposed of.

SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT RODENTS

*People usually associate rodents with lack of hygiene. However this is not the case, even the cleanest premises can harbour rats. If rodents can find access into a building and a harbourage, they may feed on pet food, grain, seeds or vegetables rather than garbage.

 

*Rodents continually urinate to mark their territory as a form of communication.

 

*If you see one rodent then there are most likely many more. One female rodent may produce 60 offspring per year. They can reproduce all year round in an environment where there is adequate food, water and shelter. Catching just one is unlikely to solve the problem.

 

*Cheese is not the favourite food of mice. Mice do not eat processed foods in the wild, there diet is mostly fruits and seeds. However ideal baits include peanut butter, chocolate and meat. Moist foods are ideal in dry climates as mice get most of their water from food.
