Rodents- "David has worked a miracle!! We have no rodent noise in our roof anymore! We are so pleased!" B. B. Mahurangi West
2013 David was called to a 2 storey home in Tindalls Bay, Whangaparaoa. The owners had to make a large insurance claim to have damage repaired after rodents gnawing on water pipes caused a flood of water through the ceiling into a downstairs bedroom and bathroom area. David assessed that the rodents were living in native bush on a neighbouring property, but the neighbours were not co operative, therefore a series of bait stations were installed at the boundary, and a monthly baiting visit at very low cost protects the clients property from further invasion.
Rodent Pest Control.
Auckland & Northland typically have problems with many 4 types of rodents, mice & rats.
- Norway or brown rat (Rattus norvegicus)
- Ship or common rat (Rattus rattus)
- Kiore or Polynesian rat (Rattus exculans)
- House mouse (Mus musculus)
Rodents are a problem all year but often come in over the colder months, when they are looking for food and a warm place to breed. They carry and spread diseases- other pests such as fleas, as well as allergens that can trigger asthma. These can affect your family, pets and business.
Destroying food, clothing, furniture, books, wiring, water pipes, wood, plastic and just about anything you have in your home, business or vehicle. While chewing and gnawing is part of the problem, you will find their droppings and urine will also ruin and contaminate the areas they visit.
Chewing or nesting in electrical wires can cause fires, in homes, factories and vehicles.
Rodents also are a problem outdoors eating and destroying, native birds’ eggs and chicks, Seeds, fruits and seedlings of native trees, native invertebrates including snails, beetles and stick insects, native skinks and geckos. If you have rodents outside its only a matter of time before they try to move in.
