Any home or business can face a rodent problem. At Bug King, we understand that finding mice or rats in your home or business can be very distressing, and for businesses a rodent infestation can have major health and safety implications. Rodents can spread diseases, contaminate food and lead to business closure or fines.

Rodents can also present a serious fire risk to your property by gnawing through cables wherever they find them. They can damage insulation, chew through floor joists, pipes, doors, floorboards.

Rodent control in Auckland

Rodent control is one of the most common enquiries we get at Bug King, particularly over winter. 

Rodents are an introduced pets and pose a major risk to our environment, economy, health and wellbeing.

Rats and mice are a real problem, but when it comes to rodent control, our exterminators know exactly what to do. 

To get rid of them, you need to understand what rodents do and what they like, and our pest control team do.


Why rodents must go

Here are a few reasons why rodents in your home or workplace are a serious issue.

  • Rodents carry diseases that pose a serious health risk to you, your family, your colleagues and customers.
  • The allergens rodents carry can be a trigger to asthma sufferers.
  • Rodent droppings and urine can contaminate food and damage clothing, furniture, books and other valuable documents.
  • Rodents gnaw constantly to control the size of their front teeth and can chew through furniture, wood, plastics, water pipes and electrical wiring.

Why rodent eradication is the best policy

Here are a few reasons why rodents are a serious threat to our precious New Zealand environment. Rodents will eat

  • our endangered native birds’ eggs and chicks
  • the seeds, fruit and seedlings of our native trees, removing food from our native birds
  • native invertebrates including snails, beetles and stick insects
  • native skinks and geckos.

We had a rat who decided that our kitchen was his new home. I called Bug King and Melissa was amazing to deal with and slotted me in quickly for a treatment. Daniel was a super star and was very reassuring. Thank you for helping us out so quickly and getting us rodent free!

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.
