Rodent Pest control
How to free your home from a rat infestation?
There's something special about a home; the feeling of being together with your loved ones, the feeling of having a space to call your own, where you can be yourself. However, for those who share their home with rodents, the experience and feeling are somewhat different. Am I right?
Of course I am! The pitter patter of mice and rats, the haphazard mess of garbage once they have gotten to it putting all your cleaning efforts to shame, the falling of things from shelves as they run around and the gnawing marks on furniture as they stake their claim to what you once called yours.
Besides are you familiar with these health hazards caused by rats?
- Pregnant women could suffer miscarriages, still birth or other health complications for the child if the removal of these pests from your home is taken lightly.
- Those with a weak immune system especially kids and older people could suffer damage to brain, eyes and other organs.
- Loss of liver function to those exposed to this threat in your house or office as rodents are commercial pests too.
- Lungs abdomen & chest pain, cough & bloody mucus for those in your house or commercial space.
- Diarrhoea if you don’t hire a commercial pest exterminator in time.
- Anal and even nasal itching in case you don’t have pest management solutions to keep a mouse or the entire clan of rodents at bay.
Rats and mice clearly cause a lot more problems than you think. They terrorize your pets, spread diseases throughout the house putting yours and your family's health at risk and their bite can be fatal, infested with rabies. And so, you will have to battle with caution.
Did you know rodents are neophobic? That’s right, which is exactly why rodents also tend to remember their way around the house pretty well and will keep returning the moment they have found a suitable space for them to utilize as their own home. This is not just applicable for a particular space in your house but also applies to your kitchen, your hospital, your restaurant and other spaces. You can always expect them to return to your space with its layout memorised if you don’t have rodent control measures in place.
Being social creatures, rats might also invite their friends and family over for visits. To add to it they procreate rapidly….rats can have up to 2000 babies a year! So you can be absolutely sure of finding yourself among a larger congregation of rodents in your home than you anticipated.
And yet…..yet all is not lost when you spot a rodent at home because to us getting rid of rats and mice isn't a problem at all.
Now we know you’d like to get rid of the problem with your own solutions but here’s how they aren’t so effective:
- Finding traps and rat poison that won’t harm your loved ones or pets is difficult. Your child/pet could easily put it into your mouth. And as for traps forgetting to clear them instantly could lead to huge problems.
- Food needs to be stored away in tightly sealed containers, garbage needs to be cleared and pet’s food needs to be kept away – if you forget to do so, you’re bound to attract them.
- Clutter needs to be constantly cleared in and around your home.
Opt for ‘squeaky’ clean.

Your 7 point checklist to assessing whether you’re selecting the right professional service to tackle your rodent problem:
- Do they provide same day rodent control service (normally)?
- Do they have over 2 decades of experience in the Rodent Control field?
- Are they fully accredited and licensed to carry out pest & rodent control services from the Victorian government?
- Do they make use of the most up-to- date non-destructive technology for rodent control?
- What about a specialist division for inspections, reports and treatments – do they have one?
- Finally, do they guarantee their work of getting rid of rodents and ensuring they do not return?
- Can they ensure you, your loved ones and the environment’s safety by offering natural and biodegradable treatments for getting rid of rodents?
Cannot recommend Protech highly enough. They come quickly - especially if you have a problem. Have two different methods for treating rats/mice problems which is great. Their costs are very reasonable. Have been using them for ongoing maintenance for many years, and do not hesitate in recommending them to others.

Protech is a service first company that addressed our rodent issue promptly and effectively. The experienced and friendly technician identified where the rodents were coming into our home and took the time to explain the treatment process which took into consideration the needs of our pet Labrador. Within a day the scurrying noises in the roof and sightings in the home were rapidly reduced; a major comforting factor for our family.
This service is value for money and I would highly recommend Protech to anyone.
