Through the ages, rodents have been a major pest problem for residential homes and businesses in Australia. In an instant, they can considerably affect your business reputation in terms of your sanitation practices.
Businesses deal directly with the public, and if one customer spots a rodent, news can travel faster than the plague.
For reactive measures, rodent pest control is essential in a regular pest management plan. The frequency of pesticide application may vary according to the infestation and the product used by the professional pest control operator.
Generally, rodent pest control is recommended to be performed once in a quarter for homes and apartments and at least once a month for business establishments.
In Australia, the main rodent types are:
Not surprisingly, rodent control can be dangerous and can impose a serious risk of death to pets if not done by a professional.
Many DIY baits available from hardware stores contain a second poisoning active ingredient. This ingredient can cause rodents to appear dazed and confused for the last 12 hours of its life before slowly dying.
During this timeframe, rodents may roam around the house disorientedly. This is when pets get the chance to chase the poisoned rodent and eventually eat or bite them. As a result, secondary poisoning may take place, which can lead to the death of pets or an expensive vet bill for pet owners.
Safety is a top priority when performing rodent treatments. Hence, as a professional pest control company, we strictly follow a number of precautions in undertaking treatments which include the following:
We take pride in our endeavour to deliver our services in the safest way possible for pets and the environment. Thus, we use soft baits containing Cholecalciferol which is a non-anticoagulant rodenticide. It is registered for use internally, externally and on fence lines. It is very safe and poses no risk of secondary poisoning for pets or birds, should they feed on a rodent affected by the bait.
Additionally, this soft bait also controls rodents fast and contains an active ingredient that breaks down rapidly in the environment.
Treatment of rodents in yards usually includes lockable tamper-proof boxes, and the bait that will be used will depend on the site risk factor. If children and pets frequently play around the area, the kind of bait and the amount of rodenticide used will vary substantially.
Our professional pest control technicians are skilled in the safe application of the baits and the products. They will comprehensively discuss with you the options while onsite after assessing the problem and risks involved in the area for pest control management.
Rodent treatments in residential houses usually include an assessment of the conditions by our pest control technician.
In most cases, after a thorough assessment, lockable tamperproof stations are placed in out of reach areas such as behind fridges and storage cupboards and even under staircases. We usually also recommend the roof to be also baited as it is common for rodents to live within the wall cavities and come out at night for food in your kitchen.
A snap trap that is designed well and used correctly is found constantly to ensure a quick death for rodents. They can also be reused but may wear out over time.
On the downside, when rodents are caught in a snap trap, chances are it can get very messy and distressing for homeowners.
A rodent control treatment usually costs about $160.00 for a residential home. This includes the bait fee and an onsite assessment by our pest control technician. Normally and in most instances, we add a small fee based on what tamper-proof station is required and how many are needed for your home. An estimate of three tamper-proof stations are commonly installed in residential homes for $10 each.
A free site visit is provided for commercial buildings to assess the number of stations and service requirements. The treatment cost will be determined after the assessment.
