Have you got rodents?
Often the first thing you will notice is sound – squeaking, gnawing or movement in walls, cupboards and ceilings, Mr Pesty can help..
- Rats are generally more active at night.
- To check if rats are around, look for: Droppings – 12mm to 18mm in length.
- Debris left from rats gnawing items like snail shells, almond shells and bones.
- Missing household food. Greasy grub marks on the paths they travel.
- Burrow holes around buildings.
- Pet dogs, cats, birds being more excitable than usual.
- Signs of gnawing damage.
What you can do
A few simple precautions to minimise food and shelter will help prevent rats:
- Ensure that access points to cupboards containing food and food-preparation materials are blocked.
- Rubbish bins have tight fitted lids and are regularly emptied.
- Rat food including fallen fruit, seed and waste from pets is removed.
- The compost heap is maintained & sealed – if rats are sighted no food scraps should be placed in the compost bin.
- Pet food is eaten soon after it is placed out (not left out for rats to find).
- Your home, shed and yard are clear of rubbish (e.g. old furniture and building materials).
- Items including wood and bricks are stacked at least 30cm above the ground to minimise hiding, nesting and thoroughfares for rats.
- Garden is maintained with grass and creepers cutback to prevent roof access.
- Cracks and holes in buildings have been identified and repaired (do not seal weep holes, vermin proof weep hole vents can be purchased from Mr Pesty or your local hardware store).
