Pest Prevention Tips & Advice

The Early Signs Of a Rodent Infestation

One of the biggest issues encountered each year by property owners across Melbourne is the pest invasion. Having your home or office invaded by pests can cause a lot of distress, unnecessary headaches, and routine clean-ups. With pest control, it is no good just “managing” the situation; it often requires professional attention for pest control experts.

Rats and Mice (Rodents) are now on the move looking for shelter from the cooler weather, they are invading homes all over Melbourne from the Mornington Peninsula to Frankston, Dandenong all the way to Werribee, Geelong and the Surf Coast.

With changing weather conditions, rain and cool air play a large part in the invasion of rodent activity in our homes and offices across Melbourne.

It is very important to catch signs of infestation early as rodents can cause a lot of damage very quickly. The fact that a female mouse can produce up to 10 litters in just one year is a testament to the potential size of the problem.

There are some early signs of rodent infestation you can look for to determine if your property has visitors. The main ones being:

  • A strong musky smell
  • Chew and bite marks on furniture and walls
  • Rodent droppings
  • Check undisturbed cardboard boxes including show boxes
