In quest of food, rats and mice enter homes, apartments, restaurants, livestock stalls, and storage areas through any cracks or crevices.
Mice are more active before sunrise than rats are at sunset.
Signs of rodent infestation:
- Rodent droppings have been discovered.

Why is it necessary to eradicate rodents?
Rodents have been linked to the transmission of over 35 illnesses. Rat Bite Fever, Salmonellosis, Murine Typhus, Weils disease, and the Bubonic Plague are all diseases spread by rodents. Companies might be held legally accountable if they do not follow rodent control laws. To successfully exterminate any infestations, professional pest control services should be contacted.
Strategies for rodent control
Reputable pest control businesses have discovered that rat poison in the form of rodenticide is the most efficient way of rodent management.
Rat baiting is mostly done outside, in garages and on roofs, where rats are more prevalent.
Because mice nest and forage within the house, mouse baiting takes place there. Because rat poison cannot be used in food preparation areas, break back traps and glue boards are utilized instead.
Bait stations the size of rats are installed on the building's facade.
We also offer roof sealing as a permanent rat control solution for homes. This fully eliminates the need to eradicate rodents from entering your roof space.

In South Africa, there are 3 primary rodent species that invade houses and commercial buildings without permission. The Norwegian mouse, the roof mouse, and the home mouse are three types of mice.

Exterminators for Rat & Mice
Controlling rodents is essential to maintain a healthy and disease-free atmosphere. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has linked rats to the transmission of nearly a dozen diseases to humans. The need to eradicate rodents is critical since they are rapidly spreading across Africa. A female rat, for example, can produce over 100 babies per year in the absence of rodent control measures. Within 2 months, these offspring achieve adulthood and are ready to mate.
The Norway rat, Roof rat, and House mouse are by far the most prevalent rodents found in South Africa. During the winter, rat management becomes even more important as rodents seek shelter in residences to prevent the cold. Rodents are smart animals that adapt well enough to new situations, according to pest management experts. Our pest control professionals, on the other hand, are trained and experienced in eradicating any rodent infestations.

Rats have 18 parasitic infections and spread 35 diseases to humans all over the world. Keeping them out of your homes and businesses is essential.
Options for treatment
Rodents must be kept out of the structure, which is accomplished by placing tamper-evident boxes outside the structure with deadly baits for rodents to consume. If mice have already entered the building, we will utilize mouse traps or toxic bait in paper boxes to catch them.
Preventing rodents from accessing the structure requires a variety of protection solutions. If the mouse is within your home's roof, we'll utilize certified toxic baits and place them on the mice' paths.
