Signs of mice or rat infestation

  • Droppings: these are small and dark, and often found along walls, under sinks or in cupboards
  • Noises: you may hear scratching noises in the walls or ceilings
  • Nests: these will be in hidden places (like behind the fridge). They’re usually made of shredded material like newspaper or fabric. 
  • Mice and rats: if you’re constantly seeing rats or mice, it’s most likely that you’ve got an infestation

Our local technicians have expert knowledge and experience with a variety of mice and rats. We can offer advice on how to spot the early signs of a rodent infestation and then provide you with an effective, targeted treatment for your property.
