Rats and mice, also known as rodents, pose a pretty serious threat to Australian homes and businesses across Melbourne. They contaminate food and spread diseases, as well as causing terrible structural damage to walls, floors and roofs around your property or buildings. Their teeth will continue to grow throughout their lifespan, which gives them the need to gnaw on anything they see fit, whether that be wood, water pipes, ducting, or plaster.
Rodents have also been well-known to cause water damage, as well as the reason for fires starting.
The three main culprits when it comes to rodents are:
- The Roof Rat
- Norway Rat
- House Mouse
It’s essential to eliminate rodents such as rats and mice quickly to avoid an infestation. Contact our rodent pest control team at All Guard Pest Control so we can help you free your home of rats, mice and any house mouse.
Signs of a Rodent Infestation
How do you know if you’ve got a rodent problem? Well, you could call us straight away and we will be able to come out and tell you. However, if you’d like to do a bit of detective work yourself, have a look for the following:
Look at the structural areas throughout your house or business, as well as inside the roof. They love to gnaw on anything they can sink their teeth into such as electrical wires, phone cables, walls and food around your home.
Dropping from rats and mice
This is a massive giveaway and usually one of the most obvious signs of an infestation.
Damaged food and torn packaging
Have a look in the pantry, you might see that several items in there have been nibbled on!
Listen out for scurrying around the roof area, in the wall or under the floor. Pets are also really good at sounding them out!
In many cases you will be able to smell their droppings or urine in areas with poor ventilation, i.e. the pantry/laundry.

How do our exterminators get rid of rats and mice?
Pest control for rats and mice is more common than you’d think, especially if you’re living on an older property. Rats and mice always find ways to enter your house through entry points and holes in walls or the roof of your home.
To prevent further damage to your property, our exterminators highly recommend that you get rid of rats and mice as soon as possible through the appropriate treatments for rodent control and pest control methods.
Our professional exterminators at All Guard Pest control will visit your home to inspect entry points and look out for possible marks of an infestation. It’s important to identify entry points, such as holes, early on in the treatment as those are the places where rats and mice can enter your home.
Signs such as rub marks are helpful to observe too as they happen when rodents rub their fur against the walls of their burrows or nest, which can be around your house or nearby buildings. Rub marks are often seen as dark smears on walls and other surfaces.
Exterminators will place traps for pests and rodents as bait – designed to capture and eliminate common rodent pests such as the house mouse, rats, and mice in and around your house. Traps around entry points are most effective to eliminate species of rodents in and around your property. At All Guard, we do not use harsh chemical treatments which means we are able to perform complete extermination of rodents from your home that is pet-friendly and safer for you and your family.

Rodents such as rats and mice are pests that can increase in numbers very quickly if no immediate action is taken, so it’s best to get rid of them immediately to avoid an infestation. Rodent and pest control methods can vary, however, below are a few signs and things you can do around your home to help control them, especially around your property.
- Rodents will continually seek food, water, and shelter around your property so it’s essential to control rodent entry points first.
- Refrigerate, seal and put away food to prevent the house mouse from gnawing on wrappers or contaminating your food with diseases as they come out to feed at night.
