Rodents

Rats and mice live wherever they find food – in domestic houses, factories, warehouses, underground drains and sewers.


Rats damage structures, eat stored foods and contaminate foodstuff with droppings, urine and hair.

Rats carry many different parasites and can transmit diseases to humans, such as Salmonella, Typhus, Rat Bite Fever and others.

A single female rat can produce up to 10 litters each year and she has 6–12 babies per litter. The babies will be ready to mate in two months.

Rats gnaw on almost anything such as wood, electric cables, plastic and bricks, so as to wear down their constantly growing incisor teeth.

Our very successful rodent treatments usually involve visiting your property (home/office/factory) more than once. We do an initial treatment, placing multi-feed rodent bait in safe places, and at least one follow up visit to rebait problem areas. Rats breed so quickly that a once-off treatment is not usually enough to control the rat problem. We recommend monthly services in high risk businesses and locations.

We have a range of rodenticides that we use for rat or mice infestation in different areas, depending on your unique situation and safety issues.

The product used controls Norway Rats, Roof Rats and House Mice, reduces the risk of secondary poisoning and is endorsed by the Griffon Poison Information Centre.
