There are two main types of rats that cause concern in Australia. The Brown Rat (or common rat) and the Black Rat, which was introduced to this country are a common pest in both private homes and businesses. Rat control is important to avoid a number of serious diseases, which rats are known to transmit. Rats can be very persistent and if they manage to gain access into your home or business they can spread these diseases, cause considerable damage and contaminate food.
By proofing your home, you will help to make it seem less attractive to rodents. Rats will make the most of any opportunity to enter your home in the search for shelter and food. Brown Rat is much more common in our homes. It has a great ability to climb and is extremely agile and hence these rats you’ll find in your ceilings and wall cavities.
Rats are well known to spread disease, damage property and contaminate food and animal feed. If they are able to gain entry into your home or business, they can introduce other unwelcome parasites like fleas, lice and ticks. Acting at the first sign of a suspected problem can help to drastically reduce the length of time needed to effectively control an infestation. Rats are able to breed quickly and a small problem has the potential to develop into a serious issue if left unmanaged.
The STOP system is an innovative and revolutionary mechanism developed by pest control agencies that ensure a systematic and thorough extermination of pests from the house without damaging the property or harming the members of the house. The process covers each aspect of the pest control operation right from the rat inspection services to the removal. We follow the Australian Standards and best practices.
