First things first, if you have a rat or mice infestation, these tips will not work and you will need to speak to us to get rid of them from your property professionally. If you have had some small issues or used a professional pest controller in the past then these tips will help prevent rats and mice from returning to your property.
If you’ve used a pest controller before then they would have almost certainly given you some specific tips for your property and situation to help prevent rodents from returning. These would be centered around lifestyle habits, food storage and cleanliness etc. Your local pest controller would have almost certainly tried to seal up access points into your property but sometimes this isn’t possible so not leaving them access to food which is the main reason they come inside) is always the top of that list. If this isn’t working and you still suspect them entering then read on.
All the following techniques are known to work, but they require time, money and perseverance and will only work if you have first removed them from inside your property by hiring a professional pest controller and there is some more detailed info here. For farmers or commercial food related businesses then there is some more specific info here.
There are certain smells that rodents don’t like and will greatly deter them from entering your property. Some are more practical than others and none are permanent (except planting mint) so these aren’t great for everybody:
Cats can possibly bring dead or dying rodents inside, but also their smell and presence also act as a great deterrent. If you want a cat that is!
In short, cleanliness both inside and out, plus restricting access are the key factors in restricting rodents. The above can be a lot of work and remember that licensed pest controllers have access to better poisons, baits, sprays and techniques that you don’t so for more specific advice or full rodent prevention in Maitland, Cessnock or Lake Macquarie then please give ASPC a call today.
