Do you have rats in your home or workplace?

Rodents can cause a lot of damage to your property, they cause expensive damage to your home, food and fabrics, and rats pose a significant health risk to humans and pets. Common diseases they carry include Salmonella, Weil’s disease, E.coli, Cryptosporidiosis and Tuberculosis. Also, rats often carry fleas, mites and ticks, and can cause acute allergic reactions.

Prevent Rat Infestations

The best insurance against rats is to prevent an infestation altogether. Avoid giving them a reason to hang around your home or workplace by keeping all rubbish sealed, keep food in closed containers, and don’t put meat in your compost. Also ensure all holes and gaps around your home are sealed, as a common place for rats to enter a home is through poorly sealed eaves. Unfortunately, they can often squeeze through even the smallest of holes.

Removing Rodents

A great way to remove rodents from your home is to get a cat. They are great company and natural rat predators. A good cat can help to remove a rat infestation in just a few weeks. They’ve also got to be the cutest rat control there is!

Trapping rats is the traditional way to remove a rat infestation. The best way to ensure your success is to identify the rats’ feeding and nesting places. You will know where they have been by finding rat droppings, holes chewed in the walls, or food around your home or office. This is where you’ll want to leave the traps. Just remember to check the traps regularly and remove and dispose of dead rats immediately.

Rodent Control for Mice

The cooler months are when mice start to find a warm place to spend the winter. Don’t let these pests take over your home or workplace.

Mice & Rodent Control

When the temperatures outside begin to drop, mice begin searching for a warmer place to live. Often attracted by the smell of food and the warmth of a house, they can exploit even the smallest of holes to gain entry to your home or workplace.

Mice carry disease and pose serious health risks. They also have teeth that grow continuously, so are constantly looking for things to gnaw. This can lead to significant damage to items like cupboards and furniture. Sometimes these little rodents can even cause house fires through chewed electrical cables.

If left untreated, a mouse infestation can quickly spread, and while DIY pest control products are a cost effective way to control small infestations, professional mouse control is advised for more established colonies.

Preventing A Mouse Infestation

The best insurance against an infestation of mice is to prevent it altogether. Keep all rubbish sealed and keep your home or office clean, be sure not to leave food scraps lying around, and keep all food in glass or metal containers. Don’t forget to clean behind your fridge as this is a favourite place of mice to build their nests.

To prevent mice from entering your home it is important to fill all cracks, crevices, holes and gaps larger than the width of an adult finger with cement or a mixing compound. Do not use wood or a similar material to fill these holes, as mice are capable of easily chewing through these materials.

Pest Control for Spiders

Admit it, no one likes spiders! Some are poisonous, some cause cobwebs, but all are unsightly and unwanted in our homes and offices.

Remove Spiders From Your Home or Workplace

None of our indigenous NZ spiders are actually dangerous to humans. However, many people have a fear of spiders and they can be a particular pest in the home and workplace. These creepy crawlies generally enter a house in the autumn months. This is generally because they need warm and dry places to spend the winter. To prevent your house or workplace becoming a spider’s winter retreat we recommend filling in any gaps in walls and under doors, and keeping sheltering sites like firewood piles and compost piles as far away from your buildings as possible.

Generally the spider’s web is more of a nuisance than the spider itself but large infestations can prove extremely difficult to control without professional help. DIY spider control usually fails to get into all the small and dark corners, cracks and crevices that spiders find to hide.

Spider Bites

Most New Zealand spiders are harmless, but the Katipo, Redback and White-tailed spiders can be harmful and should be avoided.

Although Redback and Katipo spider bites are rare, if you suspect you have been bitten by a Katipo or Redback spider it is advised that you seek urgent medical attention. Do not panic as serious reactions are uncommon and hospitals are able to provide safe and effective treatment.

The more common White-tailed spider bites are not poisonous to humans, but can be painful. The initial pain, swelling and redness usually subsides after a few hours with no long-lasting effects.
