As the weather starts to cool down in Brisbane, it means those pesky little rats will be starting to migrate inside again, so make room, because they don’t care if they’re not invited!
The fact of the matter is that homes are an inviting place for rodents to live during the colder months. They’re warm, they’re dry, they usually have some free food on the bench tops or some crumbs on the floor. A rat trap here and there is not a deterrent to them when they run in packs, especially when a female rat can have up to 12 babies, every 4 weeks!
It’s a numbers game, and if you want them all gone, you need to call Cure All Pest Control on 07 3349 8572 or inquire about professional rodent control now online.
We’ve been a trusted player in the pest control game since 1966 and service the city of Brisbane and the greater surrounding suburbs. You might think it’s a pretty simple job of clearing out some unwanted rats, but there are important things that need to be considered before dismantling the rodent empire.
How many rats are there?
If you think you’re dealing with a single rogue rat, sure, head on down to Bunnings and grab a rat trap. Chances are, where there is one, there are more. Ratsack is another (bad) idea. Not only is it extremely poisonous; it’s inhumane and often ineffective. Small children like to nibble on anything bite size, and pets are much the same; that’s why we usually advise against this method of rat control. So how do you know how many there are to begin with, or if you’ve even gotten rid of them all once your DIY efforts are completed? At Cure All Pest Control, our professionals are trained on signs of rodent activity and know all the tricks to accurately gauging what they’re up against.
What rodent species have set up camp inside your home?
Rodents come in all different shapes and sizes. They range from small little house mice to much larger brown and black rats. Using a mouse trap for a rat or vice versa is not going to end well, hence why it’s best to call in an expert to identify the rodent species and develop a course of action to best remove the pest.
These rats are often littered with nasty diseases and the longer you take to evict them from your property, the more they’re spreading their germs around your house! Our professional team are experts in the field of identifying species and know exactly what product to use and how to get the job done quickly, safely and cost-effectively.
