Are You Worried That Your House Has Become Home To Rodents?

Wed 02 Jun 2021
Maybe you've heard scratching noises coming out of your walls late at night. Maybe you've noticed rat droppings appearing in a corner of your garage, even though you keep cleaning them away. Maybe you've even seen a rodent go scampering away into the dark. Whatever the reason may be, if you're worried that rodents have taken residence in your home, Conquer Termites Northside can help.

Humans and rodents have the same list of basic necessities in their lives - we need food, water, and shelter. However, as the cold sets in, rodents aren't able to guarantee these necessities themselves, and instead need to turn to human structures to make a home, bringing diseases, lice, and fleas with them. As a result, it's important that you don't let rodents take up residence in your home.

The first thing you might notice is the sound. At night, once everything has become quiet and still, you may be able to discern a sound not unlike scratching or scuttling emitting from your walls and your roof. Cockroaches in your wall cavities can make quiet soft sounds, while the larger rodents will be much louder and harsher.

Next, you may start to find droppings hidden away in your garage. Fortunately, if you do, our technicians may be able to identify what sort of rodent we're dealing with based on the size and shape of those droppings, so feel free to let us know if you do happen to find any.

Finally, you might just see the rodents themselves trying and failing to keep out of sight. If you turn on the garage light and either hear or see rodents scampering away, the situation already isn't ideal. If you come home at midday and find rats causally wandering around your living room, you'll need to reach out to professionals about pest control immediately.

Thankfully, there are a few easy things you can do to keep these pests out of your home. You should do what you can to tidy away kitchen scraps, and make sure there is no loose, accessible food either indoors or outdoors. Once you've done that, you are able to set your own traps, but you'll need to monitor the bait yourself, and once the trap has caught something, you'll need to dispose of the pest appropriately to achieve an effective result.

Instead, you might find it easier to work with Conquer Termites Northside and our team to make dealing with pests simple. We're able to set cardboard traps in your roof and secure plastic traps anywhere your children or pets might be able to access them, like outdoors. These traps are secured to make sure only pests are able to get inside, keeping your kids and pets safe from harm. If you'd like to talk to our team about performing pest control in your home, call us on (07) 3356 8801.
