Don’t Let Rats Move into Your Place

Do you hear scratching or gnawing at night in your roof? Many individuals will overlook and endure a little incidental scratching and a tiny bit of scurrying around and simply trust that the clamor will simply leave after some time.

News reports have featured the increase in rat movement in Brisbane. Rats and mice are attacking homes amid our winter days.

A warm place to live and a supply of food provides rats with a desire to move into our homes.

Rodents eat, for all intents and purposes, anything people eat. They get food from bins, home gardens, fruit or nut trees and even parts of some ornamental shrubs and flowers.

Rodents in your home or garden

The two sorts of rats most ordinarily found in Brisbane are the expansive brown sewer rodent (Rattus norvegicus), and the littler dark or dark climbing rodent (rattus). The sewer rodent homes and burrows under structures and is generally found in business areas as opposed to rural areas. Climbing rats are probably going to be discovered nesting in homes.

Trapping – utilising non-synthetic means, for example, traps to physically catch rodents.
