Mice and Rat Control Sydney
Rats can transmit a whole host of dangerous, potentially lethal viruses, they can cause extensive damage to properties through their continual gnawing and make nests hidden deep within the various cavities of infested buildings. However, as they are rarely seen by occupiers or owners, an infestation is often difficult to confirm. This is a useful guide to help you understand the level of infestation you may have:
- If there is evidence of rat but no one has actually seen a creature the population may be 1 to 100.
- A rare sighting of a rat at night indicates a population of 100 to 500.
- Rats seen every night but rarely in the day would suggest a population of 500 to 1000.
- Many sightings of rats by both day and night suggest a population as high as 5000.
Of course, the most obvious sign of a rat infestation is the presence of dead or living rats or their urine or droppings. If one rat is found present in a building, it is likely that a full-blown infestation already exists. Rats also tend to leave dirt or grease marks along the walls and floorboards as their fur rubs against them.
Rodent Control Baiting Program
Other rodents also pose a threat to buildings, including infestations by mice. That’s why Expert Pest Control offers a double visit service programme. The initial visit is carried out before we have identified the type of rodent and the area in which it is living. We then undertake a rodent baiting program, afterwards, we perform the second visit 7 to 10 days later. When we return, we remove any carcasses and rebait to prevent further infestations from taking hold.
Commercial and Industrial Rodent Baiting
We have commercial and industrial rodent baiting programs on a permanent basis, combined with a regular pest control service. Short-term programs can be deployed for smaller infestations. In these cases, we remove all equipment once the treatment is completed. We also provide tamper proof stations for high-risk areas.
Through a lack of adequate rodent control, Sydney residents can often experience very severe problems. Many people are aware of the implications of a rodent infestation. These pests are carriers of harmful diseases such as salmonella, rat-bite fever, tapeworm as well as the highly deadly hantaviruses. They can also cause extensive damage to properties by chewing through, wood, furniture, cabling and basically anything their teeth can gnaw through. The combination of these two problems means that victims of infestation are putting themselves as well as their homes in danger if the problem is not resolved swiftly. They are highly adaptable creatures who are capable of surviving and, in fact, thriving in all manner of conditions which is what makes them so common and difficult to remove.
Expert Pest Control are highly specialised at providing effective rat pest control that Sydney property owners can rely on to successfully eliminate any infestations. The initial stage we look to complete is a thorough investigation of any rodent nests. In doing so, we can target the problem areas and then act quickly to destroy the pests without delay.
Rat and mice infestations can usually be identified through the evidence of droppings, small gnawing marks, grease smears and the tell-tale sounds of such pests, often during the night-time hours. If you notice any of these signs in your home or commercial property then you should act swiftly to get the pests removed before any further damage or health issues are caused.
Rat Pest Control Sydney
People can and do attempt to remove the issue of rodents within their properties themselves. But given the nature of the harmful diseases and viruses they carry, we highly recommend that you use the experience and equipment supplied by our team of highly specialised pest control professionals. Rodents of all kinds tend to live in great numbers. Whilst you might be able to eliminate a few of them, the chances of completely removing the pests from a property for good can be difficult.

It is not worth taking care of the infestation only for it to return at a later date. As part of our services, we look towards future prevention as well as the immediate removal of these pests. Through years of successful rat control, Sydney tenants can rest assured that our team can rapidly remove any infestation problem.
