Federal Pest Control provide imperative inspections and control for all types of rodents in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Being social animals, rodents live in groups. Rats and mice often access cavities and spaces in buildings that provides them with food, warmth, and shelter. Although they choose to live indoors primarily during the colder winter months, if the availability of food and shelter offered is generous they can take up year-round occupancy. When indoors they may construct nests within wall voids, in roof voids, under floors and even within stored food.
What Classifies Rodents as Pests?
Rodents are regarded as pests for 4 main reasons:
Eating stored food – Rodents are known to burrow into family homes and stores and eat the food stored away in cupboards. This can be hugely detrimental for the health of the people who happen to eat the food after being eaten by rodents. This can cause food poisoning and a raft of illnesses including salmonella.
Contamination of stored food – Rodents are known to contaminate the food stored in cupboards with either their droppings, urine, or hairs. This too can cause a variety of serious illnesses to the unfortunate person.
Causing physical damage to buildings from constant gnawing – Like termites. Rodents are known to gnaw at the foundation and wooden structure of a home or building. This can cause thousands of dollars in damage and can even lead to building collapse. Having your home inspected and controlled for rodent infestation is a much cheaper option than the cost of having structural repairs conducted after damage caused by rodents.
