What are mice and rats (rodents)?

There’s nothing worse than opening your pantry to find a mouse or rat munching on your cereal. And most of the time, mousetraps just won’t cut it. The qualified technicians at Complete Pest Control have years of experience in mouse and rat removal across Adelaide, and know exactly how to rid of those pesky rodents.

Mice and rats can contaminate food with their droppings and urine, spreading nasty diseases like salmonella bacteria and typhus. Plus, they carry parasites like fleas, roundworms and mites. So it’s important to call our trained experts on the first sight of a rodent infestation. We’ll complete a thorough investigation of your home or business, place bait where it’s needed and give you advice on how to prevent further infestation.

Mice and rats can pose significant health risks to humans. They are known carriers of various diseases, including Hantavirus, Salmonella, and Leptospirosis, which can be transmitted through contact with their droppings, urine, or saliva. Additionally, their constant gnawing can damage property, wiring, and insulation, which can lead to electrical fires or structural issues in buildings.

One of the biggest challenges in controlling mouse and rat infestations is their rapid reproductive rate. A single female mouse can give birth to a litter of 5-10 pups every 3 weeks and can become pregnant again shortly after giving birth. Rats reproduce at a slightly slower rate but can still produce many offspring in a short period. This high reproductive rate means that a small infestation can quickly become a major problem if left unaddressed.

Understanding the behavior and habits of mice and rats is essential for effective pest control. These rodents are nocturnal, meaning they are most active at night, which can make it challenging to detect their presence. They are also highly adaptable and can squeeze through small openings, making it important to seal any potential entry points in buildings. Using traps and baits strategically, along with maintaining cleanliness and proper food storage, are key components of successful pest control efforts.
