Rats and Mice

Rats and mice are a major risk to the health of your family. They can assist transmission of serious diseases, including the plague, dysentery, leptospirosis and typhus fever.

Their fleas, lice and ticks can also adversely affect pets and humans.

Their excreta and hair contaminate food and utensils, causing food poisoning.  Rodent colonies damage and foul buildings and furnishings, and they generate a terrible smell.

Rats’ gnawing will damage buildings, pipes, conduits and wiring and has been the cause of electrical fires.

Rats and mice normally come out at night and usually are not seen unless they are very hungry or present in large numbers.

To check whether rats and mice are around, look for:

  • droppings (12mm to 18mm long)
  • debris such as snail shells with the sides eaten out, almond shells, cape lilac berries, chop bones, etc left in the corners of sheds, under homes and other secluded spots
  • signs of fruit and vegetables having been eaten
  • greasy rub marks along paths they travel
  • burrow holes around buildings
  • signs of gnawing damage
  • pet dogs, cats, birds being more excitable than usual
  • squeaking, gnawing or movement noises in walls, cupboard and ceilings and under floors
