    Importance Of Timely Rodent Treatment

    Rodents are a pest group that can make every aspect of your healthy living vulnerable and lead to widespread property damage. The following ill effects of rodent infestation will tell you why a timely pest treatment is essential at your property:

    • Rodents cause extensive property damage that includes chewing electrical wirings, eating lead and aluminium sheeting, damaging appliances and light fixtures, and more.
    • They are often carriers of various pathogens, and exposure to these pests can risk your health. Rats and mice spread the plague, salmonellosis, tularemia, leptospirosis, and several other diseases.
    • Rodents contaminate your food by consuming them and leaving their droppings.
    • These pests can mess your property interior and damage your personal properties.
    • Chewing and squeezing your fabric and papers, defecating interior, and making creepy noises are the most common hassles rodents make in properties. This forces you to increase the frequency of your maintenance.
    • Rats and mice can trigger allergic symptoms and asthma in many people. Studies confirm that exposure to their droppings, saliva, and skin is a major reason for asthma attacks in many households. Importantly, children have higher risks of asthma and allergy due to these pests.

    Do you know that rodents multiply in large numbers and excellent survival capabilities? Ignoring the infestation of these pests can sometimes lead to irreversible effects to your health and property.

    Signs Of Rodent Infestation

    Since rodents are active at night, you should be able to confirm the infestation through the following signs:

    • Rodent droppings around food packages, under the sink, and in drawers and cupboards
    • Chewed food packages
    • Stale, pungent smell from garage, attic, and other confined and hidden areas of your property
    • Nesting materials such as shredded fabric, dried plant matter, and paper on the floor
    • Holes on walls and floors of the property – look like chewed

    If you notice any of the above signs of rodent infestation, contact us for immediate rat removal and mice control in Perth. Residential properties and businesses in Western Australia generally see three different types of rodent pest species: Norway rats, roof rats, and house mice.

    How do you get rid of rodents? / What do professional pest control use for rats?

    Tom’s Pest Control uses a combination of techniques to eliminate rodents from the properties of our customers. We usually begin the pest control with a rodent inspection at your property. It will help us identify the reasons for the infestation, the extent of the infestation, and the hiding spots of rodents. Based on that, we will create a tailored termite extermination plan. We will also secure any exterior openings at your property to prevent the access of rodents into it in future. Similarly, we will ask you to remove any clutter to minimise the hideouts of rodents. Also, we may give you specific property sanitation and yard maintenance tips, based on our inspection, to make your space better protected against future infestation.

    Should I do pest control myself?

    If your property has less complex rodent issues or spots the infestation for the first time, it is good to try DIY rodent control methods. Various rodent traps are available in the market to help you with the control of the pest. You can also remove any form of clutter from your property and ensure proper, regular sanitation to minimise future infestation risks.
    However, if you notice that your rodent extermination attempts do not give satisfying results or rodents return to your property, it’s high time to get professional pest control. Similarly, if your property has complex rodent infestation issues, don’t wait to get professional pest management. Contact us immediately for comprehensive pest management.

    Is it worth getting an exterminator for mice?

    Choosing a professional pest exterminator is a great way to exterminate the rodents as well as the root cause of the infestation. Just killing or trapping rodents in your property may not give you the assurance that the property is better protected against future infestation. Similarly, it doesn’t guarantee that all the rats and mice in your environment are eliminated.
    This is where professional rodent extermination makes the difference. Most exterminators come with years of expertise in comprehensively addressing rodent issues in various types of properties. They know the usual hiding spots of rodents in properties, their behaviour, and identify the reasons for infestation. Through preventive treatments, property repairs, and hygiene and sanitation guidelines, they will make your property better protected against future infestation.

    Which pest control is best?

    When it comes to rodent control, a treatment that addresses the causes of the infestation can give you long-lasting results. At Tom’s Pest Control, we use rodent traps to catch and remove the pest from your environment. We are committed to giving humane, safe pest management solutions to our customers.
    Additionally, we will seal or repair any exterior openings at your property. Also, we will advise you to remove any clutter from your space and ensure minimal hiding spaces for rodents. Open or easily accessible food can attract rodents to properties. You should pay attention to secure your food from rodents and ensure good sanitation all the time. Finally, we will also give specific yard maintenance tips to repel rodents from your space.

    How do I get rid of rats in my house fast?

    Just eliminating the rodents from your property doesn’t guarantee you that it would give you long-lasting pest control results. While coming to rodent treatment methods, you can use rodent traps or baits to remove the existing pests from your environment. Regularly removing the clutter and pile of any kind of debris can assure you quick results. You can also clear the trash cans at your property and ensure regular property maintenance. Inspect your property, close all the exterior openings, and remove or secure open foods, including pet food.

    In Perth, the cost of rodent control treatment and protection services vary between a couple of hundred dollars to couple of thousand dollars.

Additionally, we may want to complete specific property repairs to minimise future infestation risks at your property. All these reflect in the final pricing of our rodent control service.

    Why are rodents still around despite all the preventive measures?

    If they have food or shelter, rodents will return to the same place. Therefore, even though they may be searching for food and shelter, it is best to remove them.

    The nest is between 10-12 metres and the nest. They could nest in your home or migrate to another area. Their activity will determine how long it takes to get rid of them.

    The bait takes about four days to start working. As the rodent population drops, homeowners should see a decrease in their numbers within one week. However, other mice might still be attracted to the food under your cabinets.

    What should I do if I hear or see a mouse after baiting?

    Conduct a preliminary inspection if you suspect a mouse infestation in the home. Please pay particular attention to the areas they may be searching for food. For example, you should check for droppings in the sink, behind the appliances, and in cabinets and drawers.

    You may find droppings on old furniture or in close proximity to walls, beams, studs, or studs. Although it is not a long-term solution, setting traps can be an effective and quick way to eliminate mice from your home.

    Snap traps or glue traps are safe because mice are less likely to escape from humane, non-kill traps. These are good tips to keep mice away. Please get in touch with our rodent control specialists for a permanent solution to your rodent problem.

    What five things can I do to keep rodents out of my home?

    You can place peppermint oil-dipped cotton balls where rodents are most likely to enter. They won’t attempt to enter your property if they smell the peppermint oil.

    • Inspecting your home for entry points rats might use to enter is a good idea. Once you find them, seal any entry points. This will keep pests and rats out.
    • Place traps where rats may hide or enter. They will not escape once they are caught and can be captured quickly.
    • Routine home cleaning is the best method to eliminate food sources. They will infest new areas and move on to other locations.
    • To ensure rodents flee, place garlic where they enter buildings.

    If none of these methods work, call our Perth rodent control experts to assist you.

    What is the cost of treatment for mouse pest control?

    Rodents like rats and mice may not only be carriers of diseases. However, they can also infest your house with lice and other parasites. In addition, they can bite and cause structural damage. In general, rodent eradication costs between $250 and $350.

    Many factors can impact the cost of hiring pest control companies, such as those listed below.

    • No matter where you live
    • The issue’s volume
    • What type of job are you looking for?
    • It’s so simple to get to your property.

    Many factors can impact the cost of pest management. For example, a $100 treatment by a local professional could be enough to control the pests. A regular program, however, can be more costly.

    Do I need to hire an exterminator?

    Yes. If you have only a few mice, poison, traps, or bait can be used to eliminate them. However, if mice start reproducing and nesting, it is easy to let the problem spiral out of control.

    A pest control company is recommended if you have a small infestation or fail to get rid of them using DIY methods. Pest control companies can help you exterminate rodents such as mice. They have the equipment and expertise to eliminate large infestations quickly and safely.

    Even though they may charge more to remove mice, the specialists can quickly solve your problem. It might be worth having Tom’s Pest Control Perth inspect your home. They will examine the situation and offer a quote.

    How often should I treat my house for rats/mice?

    First, it is essential to inspect baits once per month when they are still active. Trap inspections should be done bi-monthly or monthly. Traps must be checked regularly to keep attractants happy.

    Although we do not recommend using mouse bait, some properties, such as large multi-unit buildings and structures with weak foundations or garages, may benefit from secure bait placements to control mice. In addition, trapping is more efficient and can even be used to remove dead rodents. However, trapping and baiting can only work if they are maintained.

    Mice can squeeze through holes slightly larger than a penny. Mice found the tiny gaps between the foundations and siding. To increase the size of the opening, they chewed on it. Concrete’s dark brown, sebum-coloured stains are a result of frequent use. Regular foundation inspections are therefore necessary.

    Is rodent treatment safe for pets?

    Rodenticides can be used to kill rodents. They prevent blood clots from occurring and stop internal bleeding. However, rodenticides can poison pets and other animals, according to veterinarians. They can be deadly and fatal to all mammals, no matter who they are.

    Anticoagulant rodenticides are dangerous poisons for rodents. Brodifacoum and bromadiolone are two examples. In addition, even the smallest contamination can make them dangerous to pets, such as dogs and cats.

    According to veterinarians, the following symptoms can be observed in dogs and cats after they have been exposed to rodent poison.

    • Tiredness
    • Vomiting
    • Breathing
    • difficulties
    • Coughing
    • Pale Gums
    • Blood in the Vomit
    • Fever
    • Gum bleeding
    • Unexpected Death
