Frequently Asked Questions
Ans. The infestation issue must be dealt with by an exterminator if there is a large area of the house infested by mice. Mice and other rodents can enter your home, multiply, and cause damage to your personal belongings. When you fail to hire an exterminator on time, the rodent infestation issue can escalate to the point where you will have to pay a high amount of money to get rid of them. Mice should be exterminated at the first sign of their presence in a home or office. Furthermore, an exterminator will ensure that the mice are removed from the property and that their hygiene is maintained.
Ans. You can remove mice from your property using two reliable methods.
- Mouse traps
- Mouse baits
You should get your home inspected by a pest control expert if you see mice repeatedly in your home. A treatment will be suggested by the expert based on what’s best for your home. Only an expert can identify the areas infested and the level of infestation. For example, if you don’t have many mice, an expert may suggest installing traps. Mouse baits may be recommended by an expert if the level of infestation is high.
Ans. A poisoning solution is the fastest way to get rid of rats. You can also starve them by restricting their access to food sources, such as bins and compost overflows, etc. Remove broken pipes and pet food so they don’t get food or water from you. You can also set up traps to catch them, but it isn’t possible to predict when they will get caught. They may die of starvation or leave your property looking for food once they have no food source on your property. Pest control experts can also help you get rid of rats quickly from your home by implementing effective treatments.
Ans. Depending on the size of the area, rodent removal services may vary in cost from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. However, if the area is too large, you may have to pay more than that. Using a pest control company to inspect your home and give you an estimate of the cost of removing rodents is the best way to know how much it will cost to remove rodents from your property. Contact 365 Pest Control Melbourne to schedule an inspection by one of our experts. We will inspect your property thoroughly and provide a quote based on the level of infestation.
Ans. A professional pest control company uses liquid or gel baits to eliminate rats from your home. When rats find these baits, they begin to feed on them. Pesticide baits are installed in various corners of the home so that rats will feed on them. They slowly react with the pesticides in the bait, causing them to die. Professionals can easily remove rats from your property once all rats in your home consume the pesticides. It is tempting for rats to eat baits containing food and pesticides.
Ans. Rodents return to a location because it provides them with food or shelter, but removing what they need or like will greatly reduce their population.
As rodents cover a distance of 10–12 meters around their nest, they would likely be nesting in your home or possibly migrating from a nearby location. Depending on how active the rodents are in your home, it will take longer to get rid of them.
After four days, rodents will stop visiting the bait. However, other mice will continue to visit the food you store under the kitchen cabinets.
Ans. If you suspect a mouse infestation, conduct a preliminary inspection of the house, paying special attention to food sources. You can find droppings by looking carefully in your cupboards, drawers, under the sink, and behind appliances, for example.
The droppings from mice are not unusual to be found in old furniture, on studs, or along walls. Therefore, setting traps can be a quick and efficient way to eliminate mice in your house, even if it isn’t a long-term solution.
If access ports in humane, non-kill traps are not adequately sealed off, mice are likely to escape. Snap traps and glue traps are often the most trustworthy solutions. However, our rodent pest control team can provide you with a permanent solution if you follow these tips.
Ans. Rodents will not even attempt to enter your property once they smell cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil.
If you find any possible openings for rats to enter your home, close them securely to prevent pests such as rats from entering.
Rats won’t be able to escape as easily from the traps if you place them in areas where they tend to enter or conceal themselves.
Make routine home cleaning a habit to keep them away from food sources. They will stay away and look for new locations to infest.
When rodents come across garlic in the areas where they enter the building, they will flee and look for another area to infest.
Our team of rodent control exterminators in Melbourne will be able to assist you if the above methods don’t work.
Ans. The problem may be manageable if you have just a few mice in your house that haven’t yet built nests. However, once the mice start nesting and reproducing, the situation may spiral out of control.
If you have a small mouse infestation or if you aren’t able to get rid of them by yourself, you may need to hire a reputable pest control company. Rodents, including mice, are often exterminated by pest control companies. They also possess the necessary equipment and expertise to eradicate massive infestations.
Regardless of how expensive it may be to hire a professional pest control firm, you can be confident they will solve your mouse problem swiftly and thoroughly. You can schedule an inspection with a pest control company, such as 365 Pest Control Melbourne, where a professional will come to your home and inspect the problem.
Ans. As soon as bait is active, it should be inspected every 7 to 14 days. Traps should be inspected every month or bi-monthly. Traps need frequent maintenance to remain effective.
Some properties, such as multi-unit buildings, structures with inadequate foundations, and garages, could benefit from a secure bait placement to manage mice, even though we prefer not to use mouse bait. In general, trapping is more effective, and the dead rodent can be removed. However, bait or trap applications are only effective if they are maintained.
To fit through a hole a little larger than a penny, mice discovered the small openings created by the seam between the two foundations behind the siding and gnawed on them to make them bigger. The concrete has dark sebum stains as a result of frequent use of the route. This is why regular foundation inspections are required.

Rodent / Mice / Rat:
Behavior and Habits
Rodents are nocturnal creatures, mostly active during the night, although they can also be active during the day if undisturbed. They are excellent climbers and can squeeze through small openings due to their flexible bodies. Rodents are social animals, living in colonies or family groups. They build nests using various materials like paper, fabric, and vegetation.
Rodents typically have small bodies, pointed snouts, and long tails. They come in various sizes and colors, but generally, mice are smaller, with an average length of 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) excluding the tail, while rats are larger, measuring around 7-10 inches (18-25 cm) without the tail. Rodents have excellent senses of hearing, smell, and touch.
Rodents are omnivores with a diverse diet. They primarily feed on grains, seeds, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. However, they can adapt and consume almost anything available, including insects, meat, and even garbage.
The two most common species of rodents encountered in human environments are the house mouse (Mus musculus) and the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Other notable rodent species include roof rats (Rattus rattus), field mice (Apodemus spp.), and voles (Microtus spp.).
Rodents can pose health risks to humans. They are carriers of various diseases, including hantavirus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever. These diseases can be transmitted through direct contact with rodents, their droppings, urine, or by inhaling dust contaminated with their waste.
Damage and Impact
Rodents can cause significant damage to property and infrastructure. They have strong teeth that can gnaw through various materials like wood, plastic, and even electrical wiring, posing fire hazards. Additionally, they can contaminate food supplies with their droppings and urine, leading to economic losses and health risks.
