Which rodents are pests?
There are a range of different rodents which are considered to be pests. Rats, mice and squirrels are the most common types of rodent pests. These pests can spread disease and contaminate food preparation areas.
Typically rodent pests are attracted to homes if there is a food source available to them. Most pest control treatments for rodents will involve surveying the area to locate any food sources and access routes that the pests are using. The pest controller may also set up traps and other methods to deal with the rodents.
If you suspect you have a rodent infestation on your property, it’s important to get it dealt with as soon as possible. Rodents breed quickly, so if they have access to a food source and a nesting area, a small infestation can quickly get out of hand. If you see a rodent pest in your home, speak to a pest controller as soon as possible.
