Rodent Control Melbourne & Bendigo
Rodents are a term for a group of creatures that consists of rats and mice. Rodents are the largest group of mammals on the planet and are remarkable in that they can live in almost any environment and climate. You can find them anywhere from deserts to swamps and tropical rainforests.
Every now and then you might find them indoors, looking for food, water, and shelter inside a building. Being nocturnal creatures, they can be quite evasive as they don’t usually make an appearance in broad daylight when most people are up and about. Rather they tend to hunt and gather during the night.
Signs of Mice in Your Home
Signs that you might have rodents in your home, and may need rodent removal in Melbourne, or mouse removal in Melbourne, include:
- Sounds – Though often not visible, if rats and mice are in a building, they can be heard clawing and scratching in roof voids, wall cavities, and subfloor areas.
- Droppings – A big sign of rodents in your property is their droppings. These can appear anywhere and are usually one of the first signs that people come across that indicate to them that there might be a rat or mice around.
- Tracks – Dusty areas of your property can be beneficial in detecting rodents. They will leave tracks when they cross covered areas.
How to Prevent Mice from Entering Your Home
There are some things you can do to prevent rodents from entering your home/house:
- Make certain that all food matter is sealed in airtight containers and that nothing edible is left out to attract rodents.
- Dispose of food waste in a timely manner, not leaving any leftovers lying around. It is good to give your floors a sweep or quick vacuum after consuming a meal.
- Prevent the number of potential entry points by installing door seals on the bottom of exterior doors.

Can pest control get rid of rats?
Yes! We don’t like rats too and our pest control treatment can remove rats with ease. We first inspect your property to locate potential entry points and nesting areas. We then carefully apply treatment products in strategic areas for effective results. We conduct follow up visitations to assess progress and make slight modifications to treatment application where required.
How do I get rid of mice in my roof?
Mice crawl anywhere! Your roof is a nice nesting place because it is well-ventilated, and the temperature is ideal. To keep mice out, ensure your roof space is clear, sealed and treated for pests. Once you have completed your steps, no mice will play.
