Things That Go Bump in the Night

It was the night before the work / school / grand finale / Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for the…. RATS!!!!


Is the pitter patter of tiny feet running around your home at night keeping you awake? Have customers or staff been frightened or put off by a mouse darting across your restaurant or shop? Chances are a family of rodents has decided to move in. 

As the temperature in Brisbane and South East Queensland begins to drop, pests including rodents like mice and rats, go looking for a nice warm place to set up home, reproduce and search for food. What better place than in your cosy and warm house or business. By building a nest or burrow, they create a safe and well protected area to quickly reproduce whilst remaining close to a food source.

Rats and mice are well known to spread germs and diseases, damage property includingelectrical goods as a result of chewing through wiring and contaminate food or stored goods. Once they gain entry into your home,  workplaceor business, they bring with them other undesirable parasites like fleas, lice and ticks. And that’s just the beginning.

For commercial premises a rodent infestation can cause significant damage to stock, issues with health department inspections, tarnish the businesses reputation and unnecessary financial loss.


Aside from the scurry of feet during the night, there are several other signs which may indicate a rodent problem such as droppings, tracks including footprints or tail marks, nests or burrows and damage. Rats have been known to chew through wood or plastic, rip open packaging and gnaw on electrical cables.
