IS IT A MOUSE OR A RAT?

Mice are usually much smaller than a rat usually around 7.5cm to 10cm and they have a smaller tail. Their coloring's and markings can include light grey, white, light brown and black. Mice can do considerable damage to grain crops as well as homes. They can contaminate any food they come into contact with including pet food.

By contrast, rats are much bigger around 16 cm to 20 cm long. They can may be a cream colour, grey, black or light brown. They have a smooth coat and big, thin ears.

If you have a rat living around your home it is most likely to be a Brown or Black Rat.

The two most common types of rats that live in suburban Australia are the Black Rat and the Brown Rat (also known as the Norway Rat). Both of these rats were introduced from Asia and are known as 'True rats'. They have a well known history of carrying pests and diseases.

Brown Rats tend to burrow and build nests around the foundations of buildings. Black Rats tend to burrow in roofs. both are relatively easy to remove doing rodent removal by professionals 

WHAT ABOUT the other RATS?

Bush Rats are grey in colour with rounded ears and a relatively short tail. They live in forests, woodlands and heath and not often in urban areas.

Water Rats live around permanent bodies of fresh water, such as rivers, lakes and swamps. They are large and can be up to 30cm long ! Water Rats have a long tail with a white tip. They have a flat head, small ears and lots of whiskers and their colour can vary from grey, brown and black. They live in burrows alongside river and lake banks and not often in urban areas.

There's a reason you have rats on your property and in your house. Your property is in an area of the country that has a rat population (that includes most urban or suburban areas), and your property or house has features that are attractive to rats. Most commonly, this means that your property has food, water, and shelter. Rats like a safe place to live and scavenge and hide and have a nest of young and store food, and so on. A building makes a great location! It's warm and dry and safe, and in proximity to food, and so on. There's a reason rats are common in cities, but not out in the forest. Our Rodent Removal guys Take these Rat Prevention steps:




Sanitation •
Sanitation is the cornerstone of lasting rodent control. There is no substitute for sanitation, and the program must be continuous or the benefits derived from sanitation will be quickly lost to reinvading rodents. • Reduce harborage by eliminating weeds, refuse piles, overgrown vegetation and rubbish piles. • Place garbage and trash in garbage cans and industrial dumpsters with tight fitting covers. • Our Rodent Removal guys Eliminate as much of the rodent’s water source as possible, as rats need water daily and mice will drink freestanding water if available.


Exclusion •
Since it is much easier to control rodents outside of a structure rather than within, the most successful and permanent form of rodent control is to “build them out.” • Cracks and openings in building foundations must be sealed. Doors, windows and screens should be tight-fitting. • Use materials that are “gnawproof” such as sheet metal, expanded metal, perforated metal, iron grills, hardware cloth and cement mortar. Materials having an opening of 1/4 inch or less will exclude both rats and mice.

Baiting •
Place baits in safe, secluded areas where rodents frequent. Proper placement of bait is extremely important as rodents tend to follow established paths from nests to food. They may not encounter bait placed too far from their path. • Make sure you use enough rodenticide so the rodents cannot eat it all before your next service visit. Under baiting is one of the most common causes of rodent control failures. • Use bait forms that are suited to the particular conditions. Soft baits can overcome competing food sources and they hold up well to heat; wax blocks may be the best formulation in damp areas; pellets and meal baits are well suited for rat burrow treatment. • Store baits in areas where chemical contamination will not occur. Rodents can detect contamination and will not consume the tainted bait. • Be sure to follow label directions and use tamper-resistant bait stations.


Non-chemical Control •
Trapping is recommended where rodenticide use is inadvisable such as places where the material can’t be adequately secured from children and non-target animals. • There are a variety of snap traps for both rats and mice. When trapping rats, it is best to place the traps unset but baited for several days to acclimate the rats to traps. Mice are more likely to readily investigate snap traps. • Multi-catch traps can be very effective for capturing mice if they are positioned and maintained well. All but young male rats are too large to enter multi-catch traps. • Non-toxic baits, those without active ingredients, are excellent for rodent monitoring
