Rodent Control Perth

Easy Pest Control specialises in rodent pest control services for homes and businesses in the Perth area.

Rodents are small mammals characterised by their constantly growing incisor teeth. They are a common pest in urban areas and can cause significant damage to your property if left unchecked.

Rodents can cause a range of issues, including:

  1. Chewing through wires causes electrical problems and even fires.

  2. Contaminating food and surfaces with their urine and feces can spread diseases like Hantavirus and Salmonella.

  3. Gnawing on wood, insulation, and other building materials can weaken structures and create entry points for other pests.

  4. Damaging crops and landscaping.

The most common rodents found in Perth are the house mouse, Norway rat, and roof rat. While all three species can cause significant damage, the roof rat is particularly troublesome as they are excellent climbers and can easily access hard-to-reach areas.

Signs of Rodent Infestation

Signs of a rodent infestation can vary, but here are common signs to look out for:

  • Droppings: Rodents leave droppings behind, which can be found along their common pathways, near food sources, or in nesting areas. Mouse droppings are small and resemble black rice grains, while rat droppings are more significant and capsule-shaped.
  • Gnaw Marks: Rodents constantly need to gnaw to keep their teeth from overgrowing. Look for bite marks on wooden structures, wires, pipes, and food packaging.
  • Nesting Materials: Rodents create nests using shredded paper, fabric, insulation, or other soft materials. These nests are typically located in hidden areas like wall voids, attics, or basements.
  • Grease Marks: As rodents repeatedly travel along the same paths, they leave grease marks along walls, baseboards, and other surfaces due to their oily fur.
  • Unusual Smells: A strong, musty odor may indicate the presence of a rodent infestation. The smell can come from urine, droppings, or the rodents themselves.
  • Noises: Rodents are active at night, so you may hear scratching, scampering, or squeaking sounds in walls, ceilings, or attics. These noises are often heard when the environment is quiet.
  • Footprints and Tracks: If you suspect rodent activity, sprinkle a thin layer of flour or baby powder in areas where you suspect their presence. Check for impressions or tracks the next day.
  • Chewed Items: Rodents chew on various materials to wear down their teeth. Look for chewed wires, cables, furniture, food packages, or cardboard boxes.
  • Pet Behavior: Dogs or cats may exhibit heightened interest or agitation in specific areas if they detect the presence of rodents.

If you observe any of these signs, it’s advisable to seek professional pest control assistance to identify and address the rodent infestation adequately.

Rodent Treatment Plan

1. Inspection

  • Thoroughly inspect the property to identify signs of rodent activity, entry points, nesting areas, and food sources.
  • Determine the extent of the infestation and assess any damage caused by rodents.

2. Exclusion:

  • Seal off entry points and potential access areas using steel wool, caulk, and mesh screens.
  • Repair gaps, cracks, and openings in walls, foundations, doors, windows, and utility lines to prevent rodent entry.

3. Eradication:

  • Employ appropriate rodent control methods, such as trapping or baiting, based on the severity of the infestation.
  • Place traps strategically near signs of rodent activity and use rodenticides in safe and targeted locations.
  • Monitor and remove trapped rodents regularly to prevent odor and health risks.

4. Prevention:

  • Advise on and implement preventive measures to reduce the risk of future rodent infestations.
  • Educate property owners on proper sanitation practices, food storage techniques, and waste management.
  • Provide recommendations for ongoing maintenance, such as regular inspections, monitoring, and necessary repairs.

Tips to help keep rodents away

  1. Keep food in sealed containers and clean up spills promptly.

  2. Keep your home or business clean and free of clutter.

  3. Seal up entry points, including gaps around doors, windows, and wall holes.

  4. Trim trees and bushes away from your property to prevent rodents from accessing your roof.
