Rodent Pest Control in Cairns
Both rats and mice are known disease carriers and effective rodent pest management is essential for protecting the health of your family.
Modern diseases spread by rodent faeces and bites include:
- Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCMV)
Rodents are also very destructive and are known to cause damage to properties. Rodents continually chew/knaw to maintain healthy incisor length. As well as having the ability to gnaw through many domestic plastic containers, they also appear to enjoy chewing through home cabling, causing costly unexpected bills to homeowners.
Pestaway will tailor a rodent management plan for your property based on the level of activity. If rodent stations are installed, we can also arrange regular monitoring and rebaiting services to ensure ongoing protection and prevention from reinfestation.
Bedbugs are commonly found on beds/mattresses and feed on human blood. Living areas favoured by bedbugs include: mattresses, particularly along the seams; bedding, such as sheets and blankets; between the cracks of wooden floors and other flooring like carpet; in wall cracks or crevices; furniture seams and cracks.
Early identification and treatment will help minimize the impact of a bedbugs’ infestation at your property.
