Mice Control – Residential And Commercial 

RatMouse

“I’ve dealt with many properties that struggle with mouse control and never found a premises which couldn’t be treated by our professional team with outstanding results. Our testimonies speak for themselves!” – A1 Team

The presence of mice is undesirable in any commercial premises however, if the complex houses businesses that serve, prepare or store food, it’s usually necessary to ensure you have a mice control plan in place. It’s not just restaurants and shopping centres that generally need to do this –
complexes such as hospitals, schools and hotels also have food preparation and storage areas.

Mice Control – How To Get Rid of That Rodent Nuisance

There are a variety of treatment options available to Australian homes that want to rid themselves of any rodent infestation. During winter rodent activity increases substantially as mice seek out warmer nesting areas which often ends up with them infesting homes or offices!

Treatment Strategies Include: 

Baiting

This is the most effective treatment method for getting rid of mice and it is our recommended treatment option to get a positive long term effect. With baiting you also don’t need to worry about seeing a gory mess as you would when using mouse traps. With our Rodent Baiting Systems you don’t need to worry about any messy residue, nasty smells or annoying mice! After ingesting the bait results are achieved anywhere from as little as 4 hours.

Traps

There are lots of different mice traps currently on the market but they all have similarities and generally work on the same premise (snapping down on the mouse/rat) and leaving quite a mess that would require a strong stomach to clean up.

Fumigation

This treatment method is generally only used in agricultural settings for the treatment of large silos and due to using an airborne pesticide results are achieved very quickly over a large surface area.

Mice and other rodents are more than just a nuisance. They might seem furry and cute but once they’ve invaded your house they are capable of spreading diseases, cause damage and in some cases start house fires by chewing through your electrical wiring. You might currently be looking at options to get rid of these unwanted guests besieging your home; expert pest fumigation might be the best option for you.
Over the many years of their species they have manage to develop immunities to some of the more common pest control chemicals which makes them a very difficult pest to exterminate without the help of a professional who has undergone training and has gone through the process before. As each scenario is different the chosen treatment or method depends on the problem at hand and a professional will be able to advise you which approach is best.
If you suspect you have a rodent problem the first thing to do is to get a pest inspection undertaken to determine the exact nature and extent of the problem. Your pest controller will then advise you on whether pest fumigation will be necessary or if you can get rid of the problem by other means.
A few of the alternatives to using rodent fumigation include the setting of traps and baits or using repellents. The problem with making use of chemical methods to poison the rats or mice is that they are likely to crawl off and die somewhere in a crevice or hole which is hard to remove them from. This leads to a nasty smell followed by a difficult and costly process of removal. Making use of a qualified and professional pest management company will help you avoid this process.
Making sure to store food in heavy plastic containers will assist in deterring rodents who are looking for an easy source of food. It’s possible for rats to chew through food packaging and then contaminate the food so keeping opened dry goods sealed and out of the way will reduce the risk of disease being spread as well as giving them less incentive to visit your household.
If you’ve stumbled across rodent droppings or maybe noticed chewed wires and furniture or food packages you might be sitting with a budding rodent problem. Mice and rats can breed at an incredibly rapid pace and if you have seen one of them the odds are that there are a whole lot more close by. Getting into contact with a pest control expert to arrange an inspection will save you from all the wondering and worry about an infestation.

Mice & Disease

 Mice and other rodents are well known disease carriers. Perhaps the most famous disease carried by rodents is the Bubonic Plague (also called the ‘Black Death’) which has killed millions and millions of people over the centuries. The disease is passed to humans by fleas that have been in contact with infected rats or mice, and then from human to human as symptoms develop. Europe, the United Kingdom and even Australia were affected by outbreaks in the 1900s. Although the disease still exists, such massive outbreaks are unlikely in this day and age in Australia thanks to
general improvements in hygiene standards, the availability of pest control, better medical facilities and antibiotics!

 Weil’s disease (also known as Leptospirosis) isn’t such ancient history – in fact, Andy Holmes, an Olympic rower, passed away after contracting this disease as recently as 2010. How did he get it? This disease can be picked up by coming into contact with water that has been contaminated by rodents.

 Salmonella bacteria are also spread by mice. Many people think that Salmonella comes from consuming food that is ‘off’ however, that’s not the case at all. The Salmonella bacterium is transmitted from an infected animal. It can occur either when the droppings of infected mice or other pests come into contact with food, or when food (meat, eggs or poultry for example) from an infected animal isn’t cooked properly. It can also be transmitted by human hands and by utensils – for example, when someone touches or cuts a raw product that is contaminated, and then touches food that is ready to eat with contaminated hands, or the contaminated knife.

 That’s just a sample of the diseases that mice and rats can carry and transmit. The symptoms of all of these illnesses are quite serious and can be fatal, particularly in those whose health may be weakened by another condition – so the control of mice and rats in the vicinity of areas inhabited or frequented by humans is absolutely vital.

Where do rodents hide?

Household rodents can live in hidden areas such as roof-spaces, wall cavities, behind cupboards, underneath countertops, near furnaces, in the laundry, near pet areas, in basements, and in crawl spaces. If rodents are found in your house it does not automatically mean your hygiene is poor, since they might simply have been attracted to your pet feed, bird seed, or scraps you feed to wild birds or your chickens (if you keep them).

Tell-tale signs of rodents include droppings, urine stains, smear marks on walls, odours, noises at night in your attic or walls, and gnaw marks in beams or furnishings.

 Mice control is recommended even for commercial premises that don’t house food related operations because if buildings and properties nearby have strict pest and rodent control measures in place, an unprotected building may be the most attractive destination for the local mice!
