Ongoing Prevention Tips

You cannot always expect long-lasting effects from a one-time rodent treatment. As a result, we will advise you on continuous preventative strategies that are tailored to your home in order to help you achieve outcomes that last.

In general, you can minimise rat and mouse infestations on your property by taking the following steps:

  • Regularly clear your home of clutter, and keep it tidy and clean.
  • Never leave pet food open and unattended after feeding your animals. Instead, store all food products in tightly sealed containers.
  • Place the food scraps in a garbage bin that is tightly closed and frequently emptied.
  • Eliminate the overgrown vegetation around your home, and keep your lawn nice and short.
  • Regularly walk around your property to check and repair any damage and openings.

Rodent repellents, baits & traps

The chemicals in rodent repellents must be handled with extreme caution. Although there are over-the-counter rodent repellents, if they are not positioned carefully on your property, you might not see a decrease in rodent activity and endanger your family and animals.

The placement of “bait stations,” is crucial to their effectiveness. Rodents won’t enter a bait station, regardless of how effective it is if it is not positioned in the proper spot. Pest control specialists are trained in the placement and handling of bait stations and repellents.

When treatment is complete, they will ensure to remove all baits and repellants, keeping them out of reach of people, animals and livestock.

We are aware that some customers might be worried about how bait stations and repellents would affect the environment. Here are some important details concerning rodenticides and repellents to help you relax:


  • If rodents are not present on your property, then there is no need for rodenticides or baits. 
  • Pest-proofing and sanitation and repellents are the first for preventing rat infestations.
  • Rodenticides are only used when there is confirmation of rodent activity.
  • If rodenticide poses a threat to non-targeted animals, like pets and wildlife, extra safety precautions are taken.

Rodent Infestations can pose serious health risks

The majority of rodents aren’t violent until they feel threatened, yet both live animals and their carcasses can harbour a variety of contagious diseases that can be spread to people. Fleas, ticks, or mites that fed on an infected rat can also act as a disease vector, as can contact rodent urine, saliva, and droppings.

Some severe diseases caused by contact with rodents include:

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS), is caused by hantavirus and spread via deer and rodents.
  • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM), is caused by lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) spread via house mice.
  • Bubonic Plague, is caused by the Yersinia pestis bacterium on rats and their fleas.
  • Asthma or other allergy symptoms can be caused by rodent hair, dander or droppings.

When handling rats, whether alive or dead, take extra precautions and put on a mask and gloves to protect yourself from disease. Get in touch with a pest control professional if you have a rodent infestation. A professional has the training, tools, and knowledge to get rid of your problem safely.
