Rodent Control Information

Do you need Rat or Mouse Extermination?

Winter 2017 in Auckland is looking significant in terms of rodent problems. Excellent breeding conditions over Summer has seen rodent populations explode. Now Winter's arrived, food is scarce and we're seeing a significant increase in rats and mice moving indoors to seek food and shelter. The type of infestations you're most likely to experience are;

Once rodents have established a nest inside there is a major risk of damage to water pipes and electrical wiring. All rodents exhibit gnawing behaviour. They do this to keep the growth of their teeth under control. Unfortunately plastic water pipes and electrical wiring provide a perfect way to achieve this.

Another common risk of rodents is disease. Rats and mice all carry diseases. When they get into your food they leave urine and faeces in and around it. There's nothing worse than finally noticing a hole in the cornflakes packet you've been eating out of for the past week.

A lesser known risk of rodents is that they're a source of flea infestations. All rodents carry fleas. Your risk of a flea infestation will increase if you have rodents living in your home.

Bug King has a proven track record of indentifying rodent nesting areas and eliminating infestations.

Are rodents hard to exterminate?

YES! You're probably looking at this website because you're home traps didn't work. Catching a rodent is not always as simple as setting a trap with some peanut butter. Rodents are survivors! They are neophobic (very wary of anything new) and have a well honed instinct when it comes to avoiding traps.

It is important to get the treatment just right. An experienced pest exterminator has access to treatments that rodents prefer and that will clear out the whole nest and not just individual rodents.

Why are rodents coming inside?

Like us rodents are mammals, they like what we like. Shelter, warmth and food. Unfortunately when it's cold, wet and there's not much food around, a nice warm dry home is very attractive.

Common areas that rats and mice will set-up home are;

Where are they likely to be living outside my home
