RAT REMOVAL PROCESS

ASSESS AND REMOVE

Assess and Remove

You can’t resolve a mouse problem if you don’t know how they’re getting in. We begin with a thorough 50 point inspection of your home’s exterior and interior to identify all mouse entry points. We then remove the mice using expertly installed one-way doors that allow the mice to leave for food but prevent them from getting back in.

Rats in Victoria

Why Mice Get Into Your Home in the First Place

There are a few reasons why rats might enter your home. First, they’re always on the lookout for food. If your home provides an easy food source, rats will be more likely to take up residence. Additionally, rats are looking for warm places to build their nests. A house is a perfect place for them to nest since it’s sheltered from the elements. Finally, rats are attracted to homes that offer a lot of hiding places. If your home has a lot of nooks and crannies, it’s more likely to attract rats.

If you suspect that you have rats in your home, there are a few signs to look for. These include teeth marks, shredded material that could be used for nesting, chewed wiring, and rat droppings. Rats chew on raw materials to help grind their teeth down. They have been known to chew through electrical wiring, insulation, drywall, plumbing and even copper pipes. This gnawing can cause fires, flooding, and other serious damage to your home. So, it is easy to see why rats can cause incredible damage if they get into your home.

Rat bites can pose a serious health threat to both humans and pets. Rats are known to carry a variety of diseases, including hantavirus. In addition, rat bites can introduce bacteria into the bloodstream, leading to infection. Pets are particularly at risk because they cannot often defend themselves against attacks by rats.

No matter what time of year, rats are always looking for a place to find food and shelter. They are extremely territorial compared to the somewhat innocent and curious mouse, and can be difficult to remove from a house. The more rats that are in a home, the more risks involved. If you believe you have rats in your home, contact us for rat removal in Victoria as soon as possible.
