Rodents Season Starts Early in the Shoalhaven
Rodents (rats and mice) actually breed all the year round, but during the cooler months they commonly attempt to enter homes, to find a warmer place to dwell and breed. That’s why rodent control should be a priority for everyone right now.
The Pest Control Industry refer to colder months, late autumn and winter as “The Rodent Season”.
Rodents breed throughout the year. As they are warm-blooded mammals, outside areas are becoming colder and less appealing for rats and mice to live.
Rats and mice love insulated ceilings, confined areas and warm cavity spaces.
Once they have found a way inside the home, they have easy access to water and food from your kitchen, eating areas, your food storage areas.
Rodents are a danger to you and your family
Inside your home rodents pose the threat of disease to you and your family.
Possibly less obvious is the further damage to your property rodents make from gnawing with their teeth.
Rodent teeth continue to grow throughout their entire life, and so they need to keep gnawing, and cable wires are a popular choice.
We have seen copper cable wires gnawed back to the bare and this causes a fire risk from exposed cables.
So the possibility of rodents in the home can cause several problems and more serious risk of harm in the long term.

Amalgamated Pest Control are experts in rodent control.
If you suspect or know you have a rodent problem, we will first carry out a full rodent inspection and investigate areas of known rodent activity. This means inspecting inside and outside areas, including the sub-floor and roof void areas.
This helps us to determine the rodent species, their food/water source, where they nest and their travelling routes around your property.
All of this critical information allows us to create a pest control strategy that is best suited to your property and rodent problem.
We will continue to return and check your property to ensure that our treatment is effective and working.
We will also make recommendations on rodent control – Things that you can do yourself to ensure your home is less tempting for rodents and the steps you can take to keep your home protected for the future.
