    Should I do pest control myself?

    If you are a DIY lover, you can do pest control on your own. If you plan to set up a trap to catch the rodents in your home, you will have to buy live traps or snap traps from the market and instal them in areas where rodents are found the most. You can also buy baits available in the hardware store to set up in your home to kill the rodents. However, it is essential to know that some baits available in the stores lead to secondary killing. If you have pets or kids at home, it is best to hand over the duty of pest control in the hands of the experts to ensure safety.

    Is it worth getting an exterminator for mice?

    Yes. It is essential to get an exterminator for mice. Mice can enter your home, multiply, and cause plenty of damage to your property. If ignored for long, you may see many mice running on your kitchen platform, feeding on leftover food items and chewing on your important documents or clothes. To avoid nuisance, it is recommended to hire a professional pest control company right at the first signs of infestation.

At Tom’s Pest Control Brisbane, we send our experts to inspect your home to check how many rodents have entered your property, where are they hiding and what type of damages they have done. Depending on our findings, we suggest an appropriate pest control treatment that helps control the infestation and reduces the chances of future attacks.

    If you have spotted just one rat in your home, you may buy a trap available in the hardware stores to catch hold of it quickly. You may also choose to keep a glue book in areas where you spot the rat often. However, if all your efforts fail, it is best to contact the experts at Tom’s Pest Control Brisbane.

    How much does it cost for rodent control?

    In Brisbane, the cost of rodent control treatment and protection services vary between a couple of hundred dollars to couple of thousand dollars. If you want to know the exact price for rodent control, it is best to get your property inspected by a professional pest control company. It can be determined based on the infestation level and the infestation area. The pest control experts will examine your property, check for the level of infestation and quote a price accordingly.

    What do professional pest control use for rats?

    Professional pest control companies instal baits to control the infestation. Various baits can be applied to your property, like meal baits, liquid baits, etc. No matter how high the infestation level at your property is, baiting systems can take care of it well. Depending on the number of rats residing in your property, you can expect to see results in a few weeks as the rats may take a few days to get used to the bait and feed upon it. Once they feed on the baits, they will begin to die soon.

    Despite all the preventive measures, why are rodents still present?

    Rodents will return to their original habitat if they have food and shelter. Therefore, even though they might be looking for food or shelter, it is better to get rid of them.

    The nest can grow to between 10-12 metres in height. They can nest in your house or move to another location. They can be quite active and will dictate how long it takes to remove them.

    The bait takes approximately four days to begin working. Within a week, the homeowner should see a decrease in rodent numbers. However, other mice may be attracted by the food in your cabinets.

    What should I do if a mouse suddenly appears after it has been baited?

    If you suspect there may be a mouse infestation, conduct a preliminary inspection. Pay attention to where they might be looking for food. For example, you might check behind drawers and cabinets for droppings.

    Perform a preliminary inspection if you suspect that there is a mouse infestation. It is important to be aware of their possible food sources. For example, you might check under cabinets, drawers, and sinks for droppings.

    You can find droppings on furniture and beams near walls. Although it’s not permanent, trapping mice effectively can quickly eliminate them.

    What are five ways to keep rodents from my home?

    • Peppermint oil-dipped cotton balls can be placed where rodents are most likely. They won’t try to get into your home if you give them peppermint oil.
    • Inspecting your home for any entry points rats might use to get in is smart. Seal any entry points once you have found them. This will keep rats and pests away.
    • Set traps so rats can’t escape or hide. Once captured, they will not escape and can be captured quickly.
    • Routine cleaning is the best method to eliminate food sources. However, they can also infest other areas and move on to new ones.
    • Garlic can be used to repel rodents from entering buildings.

    If none of these methods works, contact our Brisbane rodent control experts.

    How much does treatment for pest control of mice cost?

    Rodents like rats and mice can transmit the disease. They can also carry lice and other parasites. They can also infest your home by biting and causing structural damage. In general, rodent eradication costs between $250 and $350.

    Many factors can affect the cost of hiring pest control workers, including those listed below.

    • No matter where your location is
    • The volume of the issue
    • What kind of job would you prefer?
    • It is so easy to get to your property.

    Many factors can impact the cost of pest management. For example, a $100 treatment by a professional might be sufficient to eliminate pests. However, regular treatment may cost more.

    How do you hire an exterminator to clean your home?

    Yes. If you only have a few mice, poison, traps, or bait can be used. If the mice begin reproducing or nesting, it can become a problem.

    A pest control company may be recommended if you are experiencing a small infestation or if DIY attempts fail to solve the problem. Pest control companies can exterminate rodents like mice. In addition, they have the equipment and knowledge to exterminate large infestations quickly.

    Even though they might charge more, specialists can solve your problem quickly. For example, Tom’s Pest Control Brisbane might be worth inspecting your home. They will inspect your property and provide you with a quote.

    How often should my house be treated for rats/mice?

    First, inspect baits at least once per month while still active. At least once per month is a good time to inspect traps. To keep attractants happy, it is recommended that traps be inspected at least once per month.

    While we don’t recommend using mouse bait, some properties, such as large structures, multi-unit structures, or structures with weak foundations, could benefit from secure bait placements to keep mice away. In addition, trapping can be used to rid your home of rodents. However, trapping and baiting are only effective if they’re properly maintained.

    Mice can squeeze through holes smaller than a penny. Mice discovered tiny cracks in the siding and foundations. They chewed on the concrete to increase its size. Concrete’s yellow and brown-coloured stains result from frequent use. It is, therefore, important to conduct regular foundation inspections.

    Are rodent treatments safe for pets?

    Rodenticides are a way to get rid of rodents. They stop blood clots causing internal bleeding. However, veterinarians warn that rodenticides could poison pets and other animals. These pesticides can also be fatal or deadly to any mammal, regardless of species.

    Anticoagulant rodenticides can be fatal poisons for rodents. Brodifacoum is one example. Even the smallest contaminations can be fatal for pets like dogs and cats.

    According to veterinarians, rodent-poisoned cats and dogs can exhibit the following symptoms.

    • Tiredness
    • Vomiting
    • Breathing difficulties
    • Coughing
    • Pale Gums
    • The Vomit is Bloody
    • Fever
    • Gum bleeding
    • Unexpected Death
