Pest Control for Rodents

The change of season can bring new challenges to a household. Not only do the humans have to make adjustments to their lifestyle to adapt to the changing weather but also the some of the creatures that usually stay in the ground nearby look for new places for food and shelter. During winters the cases of rodent infestation often seems to increase compared to other seasons.

Because of the lack in availability of food and shelter, many rodents that live around a human property usually find ways to sneak into the house through pipes and other access points. Once they are inside they get access to food and water sources which helps them concentrate on other important things like reproduction. Most of the rodents can give birth to at least five offspring at a time and before you know it they can spread through your entire house.

A rodent problem can be resolved with professional help. Some of the leading pest control companies on the Gold Coast Queensland such as we have helped a number of homes and commercial spaces to get rid of this menace. Rodents not only make a lot of noise and eat your food but also carry a number of diseases that can harm you or your family members. Many dangerous diseases such as Leptospirosis, Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis and Bubonic plague are caused by rodents and have been known to affect entire communities.

So what can you do to prevent a rodent infestation?

  • First and foremost always remember to seal off the common entry points such as pipes and the gaps under external doors which these rodents can use to enter the house. You can do this before you go to bed every day because it is usually the night time when these rodents come out looking for food and shelter.
  • You should also keep the garbage bins shut tightly so that the rodents do not get an easy access to a food source. Doing this would ensure that they don’t enter your property again and again in search of food.
  • Some of the rodents even use the gutter to enter the house through the roofs. Using a gutter guard to seal the entrance can restrict their access to the shelter.
  • The trees that overhang the roof should also be trimmed to prevent them from using it to enter the premises.

These were some things that you could do to stop the rodents from entering your property but what can you do when they already are inside your house. Well, the best thing to do is leave it to professional pest controllers.

Some of the ways in which they can help are as follows.

  • When the number of rodents that you are dealing with is not so much, trapping can be quite effective. The rodents can be physically trapped and removed.
  • When the infestation is of a significant number the best way to get rid of them is by the use of chemicals. Bait blocks can be used in Tamper Resistant Rodent Stations which are safe and effective. The baits are secured inside the station so that it is kept away from the reach of children and pets. Other baits such as tracking powder, gels and so forth can also be used depending on the scenario.
