Rodent treatments

Envirotechnics offers cost effective pest control for rodent infestations

We place traps and bait stations, and apply rodent control products to remove house mice, roof rats and other pests.

As with all pest management programs, an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach is an integral part of successful rodent management. IPM involves consideration of all management procedures, including attention to sanitation and hygiene, trapping, blocking entry points and using baiting procedures.

All management procedures comply with manufacturers recommendations and are preceded by a thorough inspection of the entire premises to identify the rodent and to define the extent of the infestation.

Our team is very knowledgeable about pest control and can provide expert advice on the right solution for your rodent problem.

Our rodent control services help manage rodents, reduce rat populations and stop rats, mice and other rodents from spreading diseases.

Preventative measures and good hygiene can form part of a treatment plan to help prevent rodent infestation and reduce rodent populations.

Rodents, such as rats and mice tend to reach plague proportions very quickly in both rural and built up areas, making controlling rodents difficult.

In commercial premises, rats and mice can be a year-round problem. They eat whatever food items they can find and contaminate more food than they eat.

Through gnawing, rats and mice can damage electrical cables and electrical wiring in wall cavities, insulation and wood. Their nests and nesting sites can be in hidden areas and full of grey fur, brown fur and shredded paper.

As well as causing unpleasant odours and damage to property and possessions, rats and mice are associated with a number of health risks including the spread of 35 diseases.

These diseases can be spread to humans directly through handling of live or dead rodents, contact with rodent faeces, rodent urine or saliva as well as rodent bites. Diseases can also be spread by the fleas, ticks and mites that feed on infected rodents. These fleas and ticks can also harm pets.

In conjunction with the flea, rats were responsible for the deaths of 200 million Europeans from bubonic plague!
