We’ll get rid of those pests

Are you hearing scratching noises from the roof? Tried all the DIY techniques and fancy electro-pulsing machines yet still can’t get rid of those hideous rats? Call the rodent control experts on 0800 546454 for a long-term solution. We have a dedicated team who looks after rodent control across Auckland.

Rats not only make scary, horrible noises, they pose serious health risk, contaminate food, cause loads of damage and present a serious fire risk and risk of flooding by chewing wiring, pipes and anything else they can get their teeth into. They can damage insulation, chew through floor joists, doors or floorboards. Rats will also shred nearly anything for their nests, from paper to linen to plastic.

“I just wanted to pass on my thanks and commendations for the service technician you sent to conduct my inspection this afternoon. He was incredibly thorough, professional, and friendly. Any questions I had, he happily answered, and his knowledge and advice was insightful. He did a great job explaining to me all the possible outcomes, treatment, pricing, and really taking his time to ensure I understood everything.
Your staff are fabulous, from the lovely call centre team member who were prompt, efficient, and helpful – through to the very friendly and helpful technician sent to me today.
My experience with Bug King has been nothing short of excellent customer service, and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting professional advice and friendly service. I had called another (very well known brand) company and their customer service was woeful, unfriendly, and not responsive.
Bug King have made my experience (in let’s face it, not an ideal situation or one people talk openly about) one that was easy, and approachable. I am so glad I called them, I wish I’d had called them first!
So, thank you, 10/10!.”

What we do

The most successful solution for how to get rid of mice is a baiting strategy. If set up correctly, this overcomes all the natural rodent behaviours that make other mouse control methods less successful.

Our technician will complete a thorough inspection of your home, looking for potential access points, evidence of rodent activity and food sources that attract rats and mice.

Baits are secured in areas where there is evidence of activity. The baits are secured using wire and/or in lockable bait stations if accessible by children or pets. This also allows us to monitor the level of mouse activity if a return visit is required.

Our technicians will also offer advice on eliminating food sources that attract mice, as well as what the likely access points are into your home and how to seal them. 

Need help with how to get rid of mice? Give the team a call for advice or to make a booking. Phone Bug King on 0800 546454.


We make the security of our bait placements a high priority. If children or pets have potential access the bait, we will secure it in a high-quality lockable bait station. If bait is placed in inaccessible areas, we will wire it in place to ensure that rodents can’t drag it to new locations.

All bait we use contains Bitrex™. This makes the bait very bitter to the taste, discouraging eating.

If bait is accidentally consumed, an injection of Vitamin K1 will overcome any poisoning effects. The bait is not fast acting, you will have days rather than hours to react to any bait accidentally consumed.

What happens if my cat/dog eats a mouse that’s been poisoned?

Nothing. The risk of secondary poisoning is practically non-existent. The potency of the bait has been lost by the time poisoning effect on the mouse is noticeable.


It’s always good to take someone else’s word for it!  Read what our customers have said about us following a successful pest removal. We can also arrange for you to speak directly to someone who has used our services, as we appreciate that you need to be absolutely certain about how our pest control works before you ask us into your home.

So this is my second time using Bug King, I had used them last year, since then we have bought a new home and the previous owners had a dog so naturally how new home had fleas which was biting my young children at night. Just like my 5 star experience before we go the same 5 star treatment second time around. Mo was once again earlier than expected which was great he did what he had to and went over and beyond what we expected. Yvette in the office was a breeze to work with. My kids have not been bitten since so I am one happy mum with happy kids! I didn't expect anything less from Bug King and as long as the awesome service doesn't change I will always be a loyal customer if I do anything done at my house they will always be my first point of contact! Thanks again Mo and Yvette best in business!

The previous tenants had 3 pets who clearly had thousands of their own pets! After 9 flea bombs, we admitted defeat and I called Mark who was able to accommodate us the next day which was amazing. He explained the flea life cycle and why the bombs weren't working, and why his solution would. Half an hour later the house was treated, and so far so good! I definitely recommend Bug King for a top notch, professional service.
