Rodent Pest Control Special

Rodents live in conditions that we would consider unhygienic like sewers & garbage areas.

No one would allow children to play in these places.

Yet homes across Sydney are being invaded by rats and mice, that travel through these unhygienic paths before entering your home.

With this in mind, and the current wet weather Sydney is experiencing, Pest Busters Sydney are offering an End Of Winter Rodent Special. 

Pest Control Special

 Houses $140 Inc GST*

 Units $90 Inc GST*

*If young children or pets have access to the external areas or the area under the house, safe baiting methods must be followed.

Lockable Bait Stations are charged at an additional $15 each per station. The average house would require approx 4 -5 lockable bait stations.

This offer is only available until the end of September

What is a lockable bait station?

 

ockable bait stations are an effective tool for controlling rats and mice. They are boxes which are used in areas that are accessible to pets or children. Lockable boxes will be suggested for any external baiting in which dogs, cats, wildlife or children can access the areas needed to be baited.

Lockable baits stations are specifically designed to prevent unauthorised access to baits, to stop the bait spilling out, ‘crumbs’ being carried away or baits being pulled out by mice and rats.

What are the benefits of using a bait station?

 

  • Baits are protected from dust & moisture
  • Provide a secure place for rats and mice to feed
  • Protect children, pets and wildlife away from baits
  • Allow for baiting in areas that would have been difficult without boxes (such as externally)

No one likes the sight or the knowledge that there home has been invaded by pests, however it is not just their appearance that causes alarm to many home owners. Protecting your home from pests & pest borne diseases is a major part of keeping your loved ones safe, which is why it is essential that when you do have a pest issue you call in the experts rather than trying any DIY pest control. Pest Control technicians are trained to look for active and potential pest issues that could arise in your home.

Pests live in conditions that we would consider unhygienic like sewers & garbage areas… No one would not allow our children to play in these places!

With this in mind no one would want pests living in our homes spreading diseases they may be pick up from their environments

With our busy lives we can sometimes we forget just how unhealthy it is to have these pests sharing our homes.

It is for this reason we are going to mention a few pests and the impacts they can have on our loved ones, to ensure you are keeping a healthy living environment.

Cockroaches

Many people consider cockroaches to be one of the ugliest pests around, however their appearance

Cockroaches are probably one of the worst offenders when it comes to causing illness and diseases. Cockroaches live and travel through sewers in their journey to your home. They enter the house via drains looking for food and a more comfortable living environment.

Cockroaches leave bacteria, pathogens and parasites as they scuttle across your floors, benches, inside your cupboards & near or on your food!

Cockroaches also leave droppings, urine and decaying bodies which break down and become particles of dust that we breathe which affects our lungs and causes allergies.

It has been proven that cockroach ‘dust’ is worse for asthma sufferers than normal dust, cat or dog hair.

Mice

Their appearance maybe less offensive in some people’s eyes but they are next in line when it comes to potential health risks.

Mice basically set up home inside your home and will constantly look around your home looking for food. Even if food is not readily available and sealed up tight they will still contaminate your home.

Mice dribble urine continuously, as they move around your home they are leaving drips of urine on all surfaces they cross.  This steady stream of urine means diseases they carry such as meningitis or salmonella are being left behind on your countertops, floors and inside the cupboards near or on containers, cans, shelves.

The scariest part of this is that as the urine dries almost immediate it is invisible to the naked eye, which means you could be cutting meat, vegetables, preparing baby bottles on urine stained surfaces.

Rats

The Bubonic Plague which killed over 50 million people in the 14th century was a disease that was spread by rats. Rats have strong and powerful teeth and will gnaw on pretty much anything to gain access to food and water.

There are several diseases which can be transmitted via rats

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Plague
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Salmonellosis
  • South American Arenaviruses
  • Tularemia

Many of the these do not occur here in Australia however as overseas travel is common where these diseases can be a problem, it is essential that you are aware of the risks and take precautions to prevent contracting any of these illnesses. Knowledge is your best weapon, be aware, it just may save your life or that of your loved ones!

Diseases by rats can also be spread by inhaling evaporating rat waste. Be wary of droppings that are on dusty surfaces. There is a risk that illnesses can be spread through dust particles that become air borne during the cleaning phase.

What is the best way to clean up rat droppings?

Ensure you remove any rodent droppings as soon as possible using gloves and throw away all materials used to collect the droppings.

Place the droppings in a zip lock bag and dispose of immediately as there is a risk that diseases can be spread when dust in your home is contaminated by a rodent’s urine or droppings.

When it comes to rodents and the problems they cause, disease is one you really do not want to ignore. The tool to any rodent infestation is to be safe and responsible.

If you have a rodent infestation and need to clean up their droppings, air out the room and use a face mask. This will prevent you from breathing in any air borne illnesses associated with rodent droppings.

If you have a current rodent infestation, have it treated by a professional pest control. Pest Busters Sydney recommends waiting until you stop seeing activity or hearing noises then begin the cleaning process and seal up any entrance points.

Protect your loved ones with Pest Busters Sydney.

Rats on the rise in Sydney

There is currently a problem with rats in Sydney and unfortunately the city is not alone. Suburbs throughout Sydney and Australia are all experiencing increased rat activity, and while there are many factors that are contributing to this problem the best way to decrease this type of activity is to provide tips on how to prevent rat infestations in and around houses and business

Rats in Sydney – Residents living in areas with known rat problems are concerned and rightfully so. Not only are these rats infesting abandoned homes, they are also becoming a nuisance around homes and buildings that are occupied and if left unchecked can cause a threat to the health of the people and their pets.

There are many reasons rats in Sydney may find a property appealing such as:

  • Unsecured rubbish bins
  • Pet food left outside
  • Bird feeders
  • Bird Aviaries
  • fruit & nut trees can also attract rats.

To successfully reduce the rat population home and business owners should be responsible for their own property which includes

  • Keeping lawns trimmed and clear of debris
  • Eliminating food sources
  • Blocking entrance points

At Pest Busters Sydney we understand that while this is a significant rat problem in and around Sydney and this is why we are encouraging everyone to learn how they can assist their community in the fight the against rats.

How can I Prevent Rat Infestations?

  1. Eliminate access to food
  • Keep garbage in metal containers with tight fitting lids.
  • Do not leave pet food outside for more than one hour.
  • Keep pet food in tightly sealed metal or glass containers not plastic
  • Remove bird and wildlife feeders.
  • Fallen fruits and nuts, including the pits of fruit trees, should be picked up daily.
  1. Eliminate hiding places and harbourages
  • Remove abandoned cars, furniture, and appliances.
  • Firewood & timber should be stored away from walls
  • Remove all overgrown brush, weeds, tall grass and plants that are near the house
  • talk and work with neighbours to prevent future rodent problems.
  1. Remove easy access to dwellings
  • Inspect the exterior of your home and garage for cracks and openings that a rat could squeeze through
  • Use a hardware cloth cover to prevent rats from entering through vents for crawl spaces, eaves, vent fans etc
  1. Rat Bait
  • Baits are best applied by professionals to ensure effective use and minimize risk
