    Rodent Control Adelaide - Damage Cause by Rats & Mice

    • Rodents are extremely destructive and can cause serious safety risks.
    • Rats and mice can cause structural damage to house, apartments, offices by gnawing, nest-building.
    • Further, rats end up starting the fire by chewing the electric cables. So, if next time you hear that a fire broke out without any reason, think of rats.
    • Moreover, rats eat tons of food and then contaminate more with feces, hair, and urine. Mice and rats contaminate more than 20% of food across the world.
    • They damage everything from books, structures, furniture and even electrical appliances through burrowing and gnawing.
    • The worst part is that they are also responsible for spreading the disease to animals and humans through the bites and by transporting lice, fleas, ticks, and mites and also by leaving the food droppings everywhere.
    • Additionally, rats are vectors for rat-bite fever, bubonic plague, hantavirus, infectious jaundice, leptospirosis, trichinosis, salmonellosis, typhus and pulmonary fever.
    • As a burrowing animal, rodents inflict major damage to equipment, structures, utilities, furniture, and vehicles.

    Rats are found almost everywhere from homes, restaurants, supermarkets, farm fields, and livestock pens. The grain mills, corn cribs, silos, and warehouses are vulnerable to the rat infestation. They are usually active during night time when there are comparatively fewer people. Mice and rats can move through small crevices that make them easy to move around everywhere.

    How to Get Rid of Rodents Naturally

    Peppermint Oil

    Rats and mice do not like the smell generated peppermint. For getting rid of rodents, you can place peppermint oil in cotton balls and keep them at the most infected places.

    Instant potatoes

    Gently sprinkle instant potatoes powder on the places that are most frequently seen with rodents. They will eat the powder, and as a result, their intestines get swell up, and rodents get eventually killed.


    Rodents does not like the pungent smell of onions. But it is quite a tricky task as you have to replace the old onions with the fresh one every second day.

    A mixture of Cocoa Powder and Plaster of Paris(POP)

    Some of the Basic Facts Related with Rodent

    Rodents are crazy about chewing.

    Did you know that rats and mice have ever-growing teeth? They use their pearly whites teeth to chew up different articles for preparing their nest and to wear those chompers down. For their destructive chewing, books, documents, wire, cement, concrete, wood, and lead pipes are often considered as the prime targets.

    Rodents are quick to Reproduction.

    Rats and mice act prolific at the time of reproduction. Mice reproduce litters of five or six babies after every three months, whereas rats reproduce 10 to 12 babies after every 3 to 4 days. The presence of a single rodent creates large rodent invasion without any time.

    Some rodents can swim.

    Most people do not know that rodents can survive even in water for up to three days. Rodents can even survive after getting flushed down in the toilet and get back via the same route.

    Rodents cannot throw up.

    It is one of the most exciting facts about them. Rodents cannot burp or vomit by themselves. There is a powerful barrier between the stomachs and the esophagus of rodents; as a result, they don’t have the strength to overcome and apply force to do vomiting. Due to this disability, rodents get died by eating the poison.

    Signs of Rodent Infestation Adelaide

    There are almost 12 indicators to recognize a rodent infestation and for rodent control Adelaide:

    • Dropping

      The first and foremost clue for any serious rodent infestation is the sight of dropping on your kitchen drawers, counters, and the cabinet area. The droppings are smooth with pointy ends and are almost of 4 mm long. They are of pellet shape and blunt at both the ends and of shiny black color. Dropping are often scattered randomly but close to runways, shelter or feeding areas.

    • Tracks

      The possible tracks for rodents are observed in dust, mud or dirt. At times, rat tails can leave the mark around the area. Mouse tracks are also easily traceable on the dusty surfaces. You can test for rodent tracks by simply dusting the area with the coating of chalk dust or talcum powder. Wait for a day and test by shining flashlight on the area. If you see small tracks that mean rat was there.

    • Runways

      Rats follow the similar route every day while making rounds for food every night. While doing so, rats leave 50 mm wide traces of runways in grass or dirt, mostly next to fences or buildings.

    • Gnawing

      Rats keep chewing down everything they come across with incisor teeth. If you see holes in ceilings, walls, trails in sub floors, under or behind cupboards, bathtubs, counters, etc., it means rats were there.

    • Burrowing

      Burrows are found all along the walls, ditches, fences and rubbish and under buildings, woodpiles, low vegetation or concrete slabs.

    • Urine Stains

      Under the black light, the urine stains are easily traceable.

    • Grease Marks

      Rat's oily skin fur leaves the grease massey that repeatedly comes in contact with holes and walls.

    • Nests

      Rat nests can be easily found in the roof voids, utility closets, basements, and garages. They are made of shredded papers, clotheslines by finely shred material. The nests look like loose woven ball of 10-15 cm in total diameter.

    • Sounds

      Though rats are not visible in the darkness, you can easily make out the presence of rodents through the sounds they make after it gets dark.

    • Odors

      In a badly ventilated room, you can easily smell the rat urine or the musky odor.

    • Partially consumed food

      Rats leave behind half-eaten food. Though they have the tendency to eat almost all the food at times, they can leave the telltale signs of inedible and shells.

    • Dead or live rodents

      Rodents are nocturnal but in an area with high rat populations, some of the low ranked ones will hunt out during the daytime.
