Major Rodent Types Seen On Melbourne Properties
Australia is home to more than 60 indigenous rodent species in addition to three introduced species. With the ability to eat a wide variety of foods, their small size, and short breeding cycle, they are a very successful mammal.
In Victoria, you will often see the following common pest rodent species:
Norway rat – These brown coloured rats are active at night and have a lifespan of 9-12 months.
Roof rat – The black coloured rats have excellent climbing abilities and make their nests in roof voids and buildings. They have an average lifespan of 9-12 months.
House mouse – These brown or grey coloured rats live indoors or outdoors but in close proximity to humans. They have an average lifespan of 12 months.
Rodent infestation causes a number of health issues in humans and pet animals, and rat removal and mice control is a requirement for every household and business in Melbourne.
Importance Of Rodent Pest Control In Melbourne
The damage associated with a rodent infestation is often beyond your imagination. They are known for transmitting a number of diseases to humans and have claimed millions of lives throughout history.
The rodent droppings in the food contaminate it and cause mouse typhoid and mild meningitis.
People may get infected by leptospirosis due to direct contact with rodent droppings.
Through blood-sucking fleas that infest rats, Rickettsia typhi bacteria may get transmitted to humans and lead to Murine Typhus fever.
In some cases, rats and mouses may bite humans, and that can lead to rat-bite fever.
Rodents often introduce allergens to the home environment and can trigger asthma symptoms in humans.
Mice often carry ticks, which can lead to Lyme disease – a very serious health condition with long-term consequences.
Rodents inside a property can damage personal property, including electrical wirings.
Because of these risks, you cannot wait after seeing the signs of rodents at your property. Call Tom’s Pest Control for immediate rat pest control and mouse control services to safeguard yourself and your family or workforce.
