Australia alone has numerous rat species such as the black rat, house rat and brown rat that are capable to spread over 35 serious diseases and health concerns among people. They can cause a lot of destruction in both commercial and residential premises with their chewing and nibbling.

Rat removal is carried out by placing baits containing chemicals. These baits are placed at strategic locations and points that would not be accessible to your kids and pets. Depending on the magnitude of the infestation, the team decides to carry out fumigation, placing traps or other specialized rodenticides for the pest control. We make sure that the chemicals and products used are eco-friendly and non-hazardous to the people occupying the place.
In this step, the team carries out a post inspection of the treated area. This is done to make sure all the rat population is vanished from the property. The team then sanitizes and disinfects the place so as to prevent any germ build-up.
Rats are annoying and disgusting pests. They present a real threat to one’s health and safety because they can spoil food, spread disease, and cause breakdowns by vigorously scouring buildings for food.

Get rid of the unnecessary clutter in your home as that gives them room to hide and make their nests in. Find and dispose of the packaging boxes, plastics, old magazines, newspapers, cardboards as these are the things used by rats and mice to nest.
Caulk any gaps and crevices in the walls that help rats and mice to enter and travel through your property since they are tiny and can even pass-through penny-sized holes. Likewise, look for holes and cracks in walls, doorframes, windows, or any damaged points that may have been previously used to get into your property.
Store all packaged and cooked food in airtight containers in the pantry. If not, then it may become a source of ration for the rats making it completely unsafe for consumption again.
Vacuum your home regularly. Also, do not forget to wipe down the kitchen counter, cooking top, toasters and all the appliances used during cooking. The food crumbs inside or strewn outside can also be enough for rats and other pests to feed on.
Rats can enter into your house through roofs and the overgrown trees near the property. To avoid that from happening make sure your roofing is securely fastened and that your attic has no openings that can be used by the rats for entering.
Make sure to have the drainage systems cleaned as rats can travel through them into your house.
Opt for regular inspection from professionals to have your premises checked for signs of rat infestation.
1. Can I perform the rat removal by myself in my home?
Ans. You can only if you have the necessary knowledge of baits and traps required for carrying out the same. You should be aware that killing rodents with bait may necessitate extensive cleaning if the rodents end up dying in your home. Furthermore, baits can cause infection in homes with pets or children, so it is best to leave the job to the professionals.
2. Why am I still seeing rats after the rat removal done by your professionals?
Ans. The bait placed will require about 3-4 days to show effect, whereas, another 15 days for the rat population to get eliminated completely.
3. Is hiring pest control worth the effort for getting rid of the rat infestation in my property?
Ans. Rats and their populations cause drastic damage throughout the property. By the time, you make up your mind to hire professional help, the infestation may have doubled or tripled in size thus also increasing the damage. Hence, it is wise to opt for pest control at the very first sight of a rat infestation.
4. Is it possible to get rid of rats in a day?
Ans. That all depends on the extent of the infestation in your property. Phone our experts on 0480018318 to schedule an appointment wherein they can inspect the whole property and then let you know whether that it is possible or not.
5. Will professional rat removal and pest control services be very expensive?
Ans. No. All our pest control services are actually inexpensive and reasonable. Speak to our team of customer care representatives to get a better idea around our service charges.
